In care of the family or Masses

Helen M. Kuncl, 94 of Prague, NE, entered into eternal rest on Friday, February 21, 2014 at the Saunders Care Center in Wahoo, NE.  She was born January 16, 1920 in Raeville, NE to Frank and Mary (Krogman) Klein.  On January 25, 1940, Helen was united in marriage to Victor Kuncl at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church in Raeville, NE.  In her early years, Helen worked at Campbell Soup Co, but she was very proud of the time she spent at Birchwood Manor in North Bend, NE.  She worked at Birchwood Manor until her retirement in 1982.

Helen was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and she was involved in the PCCW.  She loved family around her table, whether she was cooking or baking for them.  She enjoyed watching her grandchildren’s sporting events, watching soap operas, and playing bingo.  Everyone in Helen’s life was family and she will be missed by many.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Victor Kuncl; daughter, Joan Furasek; son, William “Billy” Kuncl; parents, Frank and Mary Klein.

She is survived by children, Tom (Val) Kuncl of Prague, Steve Kuncl and Shirley of Prague, Ruth Kuncl of Prague; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; brother, Joe Klein of Manchester, IA; sister-in-law, Vickie Nelson of Wahoo

Rev. Leo Kosch will be officiating.

Pallbearers are Bob Furasek, Chris Kuncl, T.J. Kuncl, Darren Kuncl, Jesse Kuncl, and Mark Polacek.

Honorary pallbearers are Nathan Kuncl, Ben Polacek, Trevor Kuncl, Braylon Kuncl, and Elijah Benkusky.

    “When those we love have left this earth, we still can feel them near. We’ll see a picture, hear a song, and it’s just like they are here. And when we call upon our faith, when we believe and trust, we know the ones we care about are always close to us.” -(Constance Parker Graham)
    Deepest sympathy to Helen’s family.
