Helen and Floyd bowled in a league for several decades and also cheered for the Bruins and Bison. Helen was an extremely kind and compassionate woman who made sure to plant a tree in memory of friends and family members of hers that died. The backyard of her home is full of trees, of all shapes and sizes, planted in a haphazard, if not creative, way.

Helen is survived by her children, Cliff (Gloria) Hennebry, Elaine (Gary) Charlson, and Deborah (Mike) Flohrs; grandchildren, Kim (Ben) Cohen, Mike (D.) Hennebry, Lori Cantrell, Dana (Dean) Stockert, and Brian (Danielle) Charlson; stepgrandchildren, Chris, Rob, John, and Mike; 11 great-grandchildren; and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd, in 2002; son, Roger Hennebry; grandson, Jon Hennebry; and siblings, Harriet Huse, Virginia Mozinski, and Linus "Bill" Knox.

Visitation: One hour prior. Funeral Service: Saturday, March 1, 2014, at 3 PM, in Korsmo Funeral Chapel, Moorhead. Burial: Riverside Cemetery, Moorhead.
