     Carla F. (Pittman) Helman, 76, of McConnellsburg, passed away peacefully at her home on Hillside Estates, McConnellsburg, surrounded by her family.  

     She was born in McConnellsburg, on July 11, 1947, daughter of the late Kenneth and Doris M. (Seville) Pittman.  

     Carla is survived by son Vincent J. husband of Tammy (Smyers) Helman, of Shippensburg; son Joseph A.
