She retired from working at the Veteran’s Administration to spend time with her family.


Helen was very involved in the Women’s Ministry group in Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. She enjoyed quilting and was very active in Bible study. Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with those who surrounded her.
