Helen Marget is a loving Mother of four, devoted Grandma to 11 and Great Grandma of four children. She grew up in a small town in Nebraska with 10 siblings. She fondly remembers taking care of her family and babysitting for others growing up. Helen met George, the love of her life, and they settled into Sigourney, IA to raise their family. Amy, George, Ann and Pat all grew-up with a wonderful childhood and headed off to Notre Dame for college. Raising successful and kind children is one of Helen's proudest accomplishments.
Helen spent many days with our family in the Quad Cities growing up. She was an active member of all of our families after George passed away from cancer in 1993. At 78 years old in the prime of her retirement, Helen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. As painful as it can be to move a loved one into assisted living, she became at home at Oaknoll in Iowa City, IA. Her transition was fairly quick as now she needs full-time memory care. Visiting Helen is an uplifting experience. She is happy, sings often and loves when her grandchildren come to visit her.
