Obituary for Helen G. Swanson

Helen Gladys Swanson entered eternal life on May 5, 2019, ten years to the day of the passing of her husband Gail Swanson. Together they worked side by side on their Pioneer Dairy Farm of New Richmond, Wisconsin. From a nine year old peeling potatoes for threshing crews to an amazing ability to cook and feed an army of family, friends and workers at the drop of the hat, no one ever left her table hungry or unimpressed. Like most farm women of her time a huge garden and canning were the order of the day and the aroma of fresh baked bread, homemade jam and tempting desserts made grandma’s kitchen a fun place to visit. As a child Helen loved tramping through the woods and became an avid reader who often found trouble hiding out with a book instead of doing chores. As an adult her advice and guidance was priceless. She loved birds, from a graceful pair of nearby Trumpeter Swans that raised 58 offspring over the years to the tiniest of humming birds.

Helen loved her Lord, her family and the farm.

Born to Ewald and Pearl Wurst on December 1, 1929, Helen graduated from Osceola High School in 1947 and attended the Minnesota School of Business in 1948. She worked at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Saint Paul until her marriage to Gail Swanson in 1950. Gail & Helen were blessed with 5 children, David (Rita), Scott, Doug (Heidi), Craig & Trudi (Randy) ); grandchildren, Heather, Joel, and Heath (Helen) Swanson, Kurt (Shanna) Getschel, Michelle (Jason) Kiecker, and Chelsea (Jason) Getschel; great grandsons, Blake, Bryce, Cole, Frankie, Owen, and Matthew; step-grandson, Chris (Tracy) Moreno and step-great grandchildren, Morgan, Josh, and Abigail; sisters, Elaine Bryan and Vivian Swanson.
