Memories Timeline


  1. I am sorry to learn that Helen has passed. Helen’s Aunt Josephine was my father’s cousin. I was close to Josephine, as was Helen, but didn’t meet Helen until 2014 when she and John visited Montana along with Helen’s brother John and his wife Carol. I was delighted to see how much Helen looked like Josephine. I have fond memories of that visit. Take care, everyone….

  2. John, David and I are so very sorry from your loss. We treasure the memories we have of going to Special Districts and spending time together at the events and dinners. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  3. Dr. Dorsch, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful wife. May she rest in eternal paradise and may God comfort you now and always

  4. We are very sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. She was a very positive person and was a “light” to many.

  5. John and family. Sorry to hear about the passing of your wife and mother. John , I know what you have gone through, and the void which is in your life now. Take care of yourself.
