    Donald and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Helen. Oh, I have so many memories of Tony and Helen I really do not know where to start. Sledding down the hill from the house to the barn during the winter, my parents playing cards with them, helping Helen gather the eggs when I was little, just so many many memories. Helen and Tony are my brother Kevin Eckert’s godparents, they came to graduation’s and weddings and we loved them. Rest in Peace Helen, we love you!

    We have known Helen since her son Ed first rented land from our dad, Robert Bern. Her sons were my classmates at St Wenceslaus School in the late 40s. Helen had a sharp mind and she loved a good joke. One of her favorite stories was about our dad, Robert. Sometime in the 70s, Robert had cataract surgery on both eyes. A few days later, Helen asked him how he was doing. He said, “Helen, you sure look a lot better to me than you used to.” We were privileged to be a small part of her life. She is home now.

    I am so sorry about the passing of Helen. I knew her from the Senior Diner when she would come and fill in. Helen was such a sweet lady. You have my sympathy.

    Sorry to hear about Helen’s passing. I was one of Ed’s classmates and loved talking with Helen when I saw her throughout the years.

    We were very sorry to learn of Helen’s death. She was one of the first to greet us when we moved to Wahoo. She also invited me to join St. Ludmilla’s and the Rosary Society.
    We will miss her!
