 After graduation from Mankato High, Helen went into Nurse's training at the St. Joseph Hospital in Concordia. There she received her RN and worked at the hospital before she married Keith. Surgical Nursing was Helen's favorite specialty. After marriage, Helen continued Nursing in Southern Illinois and in the Chicago area. After the birth of their two daughters, Helen became a homemaker. She loved her family, flowers and plants, home decorating, cooking, entertaining, sewing, church work, caring for others, school volunteering, pets, travel, music and even worked as an Avon Sales Associate.
 After Keith's retirement, they lived in Kerrville,Texas, for three years and finally ended up in Peachtree
City, Ga., so they could be closer to family. There, Keith and Helen were members of Faith Lutheran Church in Sharpsburg, Ga. The last four years Helen has resided in Newnan Health and Rehab in Newnan, Ga.
 Helen is survived by her two daughters, Debra One (Darryl) from Modesto, Calif., and Anne Tarbutton (Greg) from Vilas, N.C.

Her surviving sisters are Norma Bingham (Bill) and Connie Scheffer, both from Salina, Kan. Helen was predeceased by her husband, Keith St. Pierre and brother, Willis Mog (Nancy).

In closing, Helen's own words from a 1979 Christmas Letter; "What is Christmas? For you, we wish many good things at Christmas. The tenderness for the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future. That everyone overflows with blessings rich. Someone to care and share with you Christ's birthday, the joy of making someone else happy who is less fortunate than we and, best of all the deep love of finding anew the light that shines from the humble manger is strong enough to brighten our way to the end of our days."
