Helen taught us many lessons in life, most notably the importance of family, love, humor, enthusiasm, zest for life, and services to others are a continuous blessing to us all. Our loss brings tears, but more importantly, our memories make us smile. We are comforted knowing she is finally re-united with her best friend and soul mate, her loving husband Bill.
Survivors include her children: Bill and wife Laurie of Northfield, Lindsay of Roseville, Tim and wife Carol of Northfield; 6 grandchildren: Kelly and husband Dave Newsom, Doug Cowles, Andy Munyon and wife Steph, Molly and husband Terry Hollingsworth, Katy and husband Charlie Fiala, Suzy Cowles; 4 great-grandchildren: Jack, Ana, Claire & Sadie; 2 sisters: Christine Hager of Northfield, Peg Pendry of Winnetka, Illinois; many nieces, nephews and friends. Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her brother, Jack MacPherson; and her sister, Jean Banks.
