Loving mother of Tom (Earline “Zoe”), Bob (Gail) and the late Patti (Roger Krutz). Proud grandmother of Khrysten Grace, Jonathon (Shelby), Katharyne and Justin (Kelly Ann) Darm.

Helen grew up in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where she lived, and raised their 3 children. Helen worked at Chain Belt and after having her children returned to work at Schier Reality and later as office manager at Perregrine, Markuwitz, & Cameron attorney at law.
Helen was an active member of Mount Carmel Lutheran Church where she served as church council secretary for several years. She enjoyed playing in a Bridge Club who met monthly for many years.

The family would like to thank and express our eternal gratitude to the Sienna Crest Assisted Living Facility staff for the wonderful care and attention they provided Helen for the past 3 years.
