Eight children were born to them, four of whom, Charles, Hildegard, Berger and Hilma, survive to mourn with their father, the death of a kind and loving wife and mother.

The family resided in Colby, Clark Co., Wis. fourteen years ago. Mrs. Helsten was held in high esteem by her neighbors and friends and always had a kindly greeting for all.
