Consequently her family received many interesting "Mother boxes." Helen maintained an active interest in current events, particularly politics. In fact during her last week of life she asked for and cast an absentee ballot. She is survived by her daughter, Sherrie (Randolph) Brown, Tawas City; her son, Dick (Pam) Roth, Caseville; two granddaughters, Mary (Byron) Graf, Caseville and Kristen (Levi) Zagorski, Bay City and three special great-grandsons, Thomas and William Graf and Stephen Zagorski.
