Helen received an award for never missing a day during her grade school years. She moved to St. Paul when she was 15, worked several jobs, and eventually packed olives for Grigg's Cooper Company. She was the St. Paul Winter Carnival Princess of the West Wind, and played on her company's softball team for many years. She was the manager of the Rice Street Dry Cleaners when she retired.

In their retirement, Helen and Paul were both avid bowlers, golfers, and enjoyed fishing together. Helen also played bocce ball and was on the Maplewood Moose Lodge's bocce ball team until she was 95. A disciplined exerciser she swam, walked, or used the stationary bike or treadmill five days a week until she was 99 years old.
