Helen Lois (Esdaile) Peterson February 13, 1919 – June 18, 2016 Remembering Helen’s smile and Carl’s stories with details by Helen

BY THOR ADAM

As I thought about what to say about her, I kept picturing her smile. It captures who she was. She was compassionate, she had a sweet personality, she cared and loved you just as you were. During the time my family had the privilege to know her we heard many stories of her life. A reoccurring theme was how many neighbors she had taken care of when they needed help. You can’t mention Helen without Carl or Carl without Helen. Carl was good at telling stories and Helen was good at keeping the details straight. Helen was the rock and consistency that allowed Carl to be the man he was. When Helen passed away we lost a segment of history. That “book” is closed and cannot be opened again. We will miss our friend.
