Helen Virginia Huber (nee' Kane) Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at the age of 96.

Helen was the beloved wife of the late Lorenz Huber; cherished sweet and patient mother of Mary E. (Terry) Strahan and Patricia A. (Ken) Ling; loving grandma of Brendan and Brian Strahan; dear aunt of Sharon (Robert)Carrico, Nancy (Dave) Burge, the late Karen Sayers, and the late Mark Thirion; dear great-aunt of Mike (Marie), Scott (Alicia), and Eric (Kelly) Burge, Christy (Cam) Couch, Bill Carrico, and several more; and a devoted and loving friend to many in her lifetime.

Helen was dedicated to her family, her faith, and her parish of 57 years, Annunciation Catholic Church. She volunteered her time as a Girl Scout leader, as a cataloguer for the Missouri Botanical Garden (Shaw's Garden), and spent many happy hours quilting with Annunciation's "Quilt Club."

The family wishes to express its gratitude to St. Agnes Home for their loving care of Helen for the past three years.

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated, and Helen will be interred at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery with her beloved husband, Lorenz. A Celebration of Helen's Life will take place once the restrictions of COVID have been lifted.

In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for contributions in Helen's memory to Holy Cross Academy Scholarship Fund, Catholic Charites, Bishop DuBourg High School "Adopt a Student," or Stray Rescue. Links to the organizations can be found below.

So sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. I worked for her retina doctor. She was always so pleasant and had the nicest smile. Will remember her family in my prayers

I always enjoyEd visiting Aunt Helen and Uncle Lorenz. Both were so peaceful and easy-going people that clearly loved to be around family. We were often visiting them on our way to a baseball game, which made it even more fun since we were going to see the stinking Cardinals and could usually razz each other about our preferred team. In fact, we often joke about a particular time when we were grilling in their backyard. Uncle Lorenz got a little overzealous with the hotdogs that day and cooked and them a little on the crispy side. My younger brother Eric exclaimed “Hey...it’s burnt” as he expressed his displeasure with the final cooked temperature of the hotdog. I can still see everybody laughing about that including Aunt Helen. Quality time with quality people! Aunt Helen will surely be missed!
