to my cousins. So sorry to hear about Aunt Helen. I am your Aunt Julias daughter. I saw your mom almost 1 year ago at my moms and she never changed. She is always fun to be around and loved all her friends, family, or anyone she could. I know you will miss her and that she will be having a great time in Heaven with your dad and siblings. All my love and prayers from Az. Wanda Rudiger(Thomas)

To all the Ribordy children and grandchildren: Helen was so special and loving. I never heard her complained during her illness. She was always so sweet to the grandchildren we shared and to my daughter Brenda. The world needs more women like her. You are blessed to have had a mother, grandmother and great grandmother like Helen and I know she will be missed. God bless you all and give you comfort in this time of Need, Kay and Bob Strong.
