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.
