Helen was employed at Wolffes, JC Penney, and finally at Shopko when they opened, where she retired after 25+ years. She loved bowling, collecting Precious Moments Figurines, and traveling with her sister Jean. But mostly, Helen loved Christmas, where she spent 12 months a year buying gifts for the grandkids. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Helen passed away on Friday, July 9, 2021, at the Good Samaritan Hospice Room in Windom, MN with her family by her side.
