Helen was a homemaker her whole life, and often did other odd jobs. She was a member of Winameg Christian Church. In her free time, she loved to sew – making quilts, dolls, and pillows.

Her and her family lived at Harrison Lake for over 50 years; which made fishing and walking around the lake another favorite pasttime of hers.

Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a son, Jerry A. Stahl; sisters, Mary Brink, Isabel Brink, Louise Fazekas, Edith Wonders, Hazel Crall, and Betty Ward; and brothers, George, Floyd, Ray, Byron, and Earl Brink.

Public graveside services will be held on Friday, September 11, 2020, at 11:00 AM, at the Pleasant View Union Cemetery in Fayette, with Pastor Jim Mann, officiating.

Those planning a memorial contribution in Helen’s memory are asked to consider Gorham-Fayette Fire Department or Community Health Professionals Hospice.  Online condolences to the family may be offered at www.eaglemarryfuneralhome.com.
