March 17, 1930 – June 26, 2018
Helen Bosch passed away June 26 at the age of 88 in Denver.
Helen was born March 17, 1930 in Emmons County, North Dakota to Wendlen and Anna Marie Duchscherer. Helen met her husband John in 1952 at a local dance with the help of his sisters. They were married on June 1, 1953 and had 6 children together: Arnold, Janice, Sandra (Michael) Helriegel, Myron, William (Lisa) and Carol (Scott) Lawson. She is preceded in death by her husband John and eldest daughter Janice. She is also survived by her 6 grandchildren: Gary, James, Ian, Christine, Brianna and Ashley and siblings Ramey (Barbara) Duchscherer and Maggie (John) Roll.
Helen spent her early years working on the family farm. After John and Helen were married, they moved to Bismarck for many years where she was a homemaker and raised their family. The family briefly moved to Utah before making their permanent residence in Colorado.
Upon arriving in Colorado, Helen worked for Serta Mattress Company as a Quilting Machine Operator for many years. From there she became a housekeeper until her retirement. After retirement, Helen and John enjoyed traveling across the country and took many cruises. One of their favorite destinations was to Branson, Missouri as they both enjoyed country music and watching the shows.
Helen enjoyed cooking. You never went hungry during a visit to her home, and her food was always seasoned with much love. She especially enjoyed making German dishes. Besides her love for cooking, she also enjoyed playing cards and bingo, working on puzzles, doing her exercises, and sewing beautiful quilts for her family.
Services will be held Friday, July 6 at 10 a.m. at Olinger Hampden Gardens, 8600 E. Hampden Ave., Denver, CO 80231.

Helen was such an important person in my life. Her soft spoken and calm nature taught me so much how to parent my own children. She was such a welcoming spirit, everyone always felt at home at John and Helen's house. She will be missed.
