Helen worked at Weber Tackle for 40 years as a fly tier. She truly enjoyed her work and made many long lasting friendships with her coworkers. Many fishermen enjoyed the beautiful flies she made and hopefully caught a lot of fish.
Helen enjoyed traveling, reading, gardening, trips to the casino, and praying on her rosary. Her best past time was playing with her Aussie-Doodle Cali and Murphy and Finney when they visited.
Thanks to the nieces/nephews and friends who kept in contact over the last years as she lived in Denver, Colorado and recently in Bakersfield, California . She so enjoyed the phone conversations and letters/ cards she received. Evie kept her in touch with events in Stevens Point. She loved when Joyce Glinecki would call, she would laugh and laugh. She always hung up the phone with "I love You".
She will be deeply missed .
