No. sorry I don't think so. She was a niece of Anne R Benjamin so born much later than your Helen.
I'll do a little more but I can't see this as your link.

Sister Mabel Benjamin married George Martin - IN 1930 they have a daughter Helen aged 2 years. I tjhink this is the Helen referred to in the obituary you found,

1930 census Sunnyside Avenue Brookfield, Cook, Illinois.

George Martin   30
Mabel Martin   30
George Martin   4
Helen Martin   2
