Helen was born in Morrill, Nebraska on March 6, 1930, to Walter and Ruth (Lewis) Wilson. She graduated from Morrill High School in 1948. Helen married Kenneth Hauck August 8, 1949, in Gering.

Helen loved crafting, quilting, sewing, and decorating her home with the many antiques she and Ken collected. She was an avid bridge and pinochle player, belonging to three card clubs after her retirement as office manager for Mitchell Medical Clinic, where she worked for 22 years. Helen was happiest when she and Kenneth were traveling in their camper to regional bluegrass festivals.

Preceding Helen in death were her beloved husband of 63 years, Kenneth; infant sons, James, Gerald, and Christopher; infant daughter, JeanAnn; and sister, Donna Boyer.

Survivors include son, Michael (Vickie Cawthra) of Casper; numerous nieces and nephews; and special family, Linda, Steve, and Stephanie Alfred.

I worked with Helen over 22 years ago. I always think of her at Christmas when I decorate my tree. Helen had given me three white lace Christmas tree decorations. They are beautiful and classic, just like Helen. Another favorite memory is when cell phones (bag phones) came out and Helen was going to get one. I remember her telling me she would be able to sit in the back seat and talk on the phone while they drove down the road. We were both in disbelief. Helen is someone who will not be forgotten. Jane

I had the privilege of getting to know Helen through Dr. Schaffers’ office. Having grown up with Dr Shaffers kids, we are around the office a lot as kids. She and Ken later moved out to Stonegate Road and became the neighbors of ours, we would stop in when we saw she and Ken in the yard and it was always a good time. She had an awesome sense of humor, gifted with many talents, and always was considerate of others. It truly was stopping in to see a family friends since she had known our children since birth. I will always remember the kindness that she showed me when I lost my mom and dad., She took the time to share stories and offered console. She and Ken shared a special kind of love that you recognized immediately was made out of friendship, to know that they are together again in heaven seems to be the happy ending that she’s so rightfully deserves. Rest In Peace dear lady.

My deepest condolences. Moe Schmitt-Merritt

Mike...I loved your mom with all my heart. As they say, earth's a little sadder and lonelier but the stars and heavens are brighter. She's a hard lady to say goodbye to. I'll love and remember your mom and dad the rest of my life. Stay strong. Love Sally
