Condolence & Memory Journal

Only heard of Helen passing and service after the fact at church announcements. Helen played Euchre at the card clubs I help with at Sacred Heart and at Saint Roch. I had not seen her I believe the last two years or so but when the seniors get up in age issues arise sometimes. Helen loved the many years she played cards and especially socializing, very sweet and soft spoken lady, I will remember her and think of the joyous reunion I am sure she is having now with her loved ones, God's peace and blessings on her family, Tom Hasse

I have many happy memories of going to Aunt Helen and Uncle Carl's for Christmas or Thanksgiving. Her dinners were always grand affairs. My sisters and I were the only young people at these gatherings, so she would let me play with Uncle Carl's vintage toy cars to keep me entertained.

Many years ago my wife and I saw a metal horse's head on a post, just like the one in her driveway, at an auction in Vermont. I always loved Aunt Helen's so I bought it somewhat in honor of her and have displayed it at my own houses ever since.

Aunt Helen apparently had an active church and social life well into her later years. We arranged to visit her when she was in her 90s, and even at that age she still had to "check her calendar" before committing on a date. I can only hope that I can live as long and full of a life as her and still be as active in the community.
