Helen's body has never been found
A memorial for a Merseyside woman who was murdered 20 years ago is being unveiled by her family.
Helen McCourt, 22, from Billinge, near St Helens, vanished in 1988 after calling her mother to tell her when she would be home from work in Liverpool.
Local pub landlord Ian Simms was convicted of her murder, but her body has never been found.
A marble bench has been placed in the grounds of St Mary's church in Billinge to mark Miss McCourt's 43rd birthday.
Helen's mother, Marie McCourt, said it would be a place for quiet reflection.
"One of the main things I thought about is that it's there in fulll view, people can go and sit on it and it overlooks all the other graves," she said.
"When perople have tended their loved one's grave and they just want to sit down and think about their loved one and reflect on their life, then I think now they will always be able to do it."
The memorial service will take place at 1300 BST in the church yard on Birchley Road.
