My wife knew her better than I did. Yet the few times I met her I found that she was a true and sincere Lady.
Our Condolences go out to Her Family and everyone that she left an impression on. She will be truly missed...

I am so sorry for your loss. Helma will be missed so much. I remember meeting her almost 4 years ago and she left quite the impression on me, she almost scared me with her german voice she sounded mean but then I got to know her and loved her as if she was my own mother or grandmother. We share the same birthday and past three years we celebrated together I will definetly miss her this birthday. Helma is in my heart and reading her obituary I guess I was in her heart. I am honored and glad to have known a sweet lady.
