Helen Carol Carlson

September 24, 1925 to November 1, 2014

Sublimity - Helen passed away peacefully on November 1, from her long battle with lung cancer at the age of 89. She was born in Beaver City, NE and moved to Oregon in 1939. She married Floyd D. Carlson on February 13, 1941. Floyd passed away on June 27, 2011 from pancreas/liver cancer.

Although she rarely had a break from the demands of being a wife and mother to all seven children, she loved Godís creation: the birds, butterflies, flowers, mountains, ocean, any type of wildlife, etc. Her little fingers were so talented, they never stopped sewing, crocheting, knitting, painting, tatting, poem writing, you name it...she was never afraid to try anything new. Above all, she loved God with all of her heart and soul. Her heart was to serve others and add to their joy was a daily expression of love from this Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and Great-Great-Grandmother.
