Helen met her husband, Clarence, when she was 17, at a dance in the Lewiston Orchards. They dated for two years before they got married July 3, 1940. She made parts at a shipyard in Portland, Ore., during World War II, where Clarence was a welder. After the war, they moved back to Lewiston. They then moved to Clarkston, where they bought their first and only house.
The couple had five children.

The family would like to thank Helen's caregivers at Prestige Care Center in Clarkston and her doctor, Dr. Greggain, for his amazing care. The family would also like to thank her wonderful neighbors, Randy and Eloise, Dennis and Kim, and Vivian.
