Helen Infinger’s determination creates family legacy

Helen Infinger’s determination creates family legacy

One woman's determination is all it takes to leave a legacy. Just ask Mack Thomas, grandson to Helen Infinger, the 75 year old owner and operator of Infinger's Jewelry in Walterboro, South Carolina.
