Helen Kaml was born Helen Caroline Gust, the daughter of Anton and Elizabeth (Puttbrese) Gust, on August 25, 1915 at home in Poplar Grove Township, Roseau County, rural Strathcona, Minnesota. She attended Grass Lake Country School. She married Steven Kaml on June 6, 1934. They were married for 67 years. He died on October 9, 2001. Helen and Steven farmed and raised 5 children. She was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses and enjoyed her Bible based meetings and assemblies with her family and friends. After Steven passed away, she stayed on the farm for 3 years and then became a resident of LifeCare Greenbush Manor. She and her husband were very muscial and played by ear, Mom on the Pump organ and Dad on the violins that he made himself. Together they taught their children their love of music and to love Jehovah. We were taught that the promise at John 5:28 is that we will see a resurrection-what a wonderful promise.
