Helen H. Mueller, age 104, of Dorchester, passed away on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at Golden LivingCenter in Abbotsford.

As one journey ends, another begins. Funeral services will be held at Peace United Church of Christ in Dorchester at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 15. Pastor Bonnie Jacque-Gorecki will officiate. A visitation will be held from 1:30 p.m. until the time of service at the church. Burial will be in the Dorchester Memorial Cemetery North.

Helen was born on August 6, 1907 to Robert and Olga (Steinhauser) Tischendorf in the Town of Mayville. Helen attended Cleveland School in the Town of Mayville. She helped on the family farm and did housework for various families before her marriage to John Mueller on January 4, 1928 in Medford.

Together they farmed in the Town of Holton until 1954, moving to Dorchester in 1962. Helen was a kind and giving person who was always willing to help. Helen worked for Mildy's Dress Shop and Maurina's Shoe Store in Dorchester, and did child care for family and friends.

She was a volunteer for the Dorchester Nutrition Center and a volunteer driver for the Clark County Commission of Aging and volunteered her time for church dinners. Helen was a lifetime member of Peace United Church of Christ, serving on the Church Council, church choir and the Ladies Guild.

Helen enjoyed playing cards, bowling, spending time with family, traveling and socializing.
Helen is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth "Betty" (Victor) Zak of Abbotsford; grandchildren, Vicky (Butch) Kollmansberger of Dorchester, Gregory Zak of Hammond, Karla (Joe) Feldbruegge of Colby and Bonnie (Lenny) Zawislan of Stratford; 12 great-grandchildren; and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John; sister, Clara; and brothers, Walter, William, Harry and Paul.

Helen's family would like to thank the staff at the Golden LivingCenter and the Asera Care Hospice Team for the wonderful care.

Celebrate my life, my soul has been set free.
