Helen and Bud

Helen Mae Wickman, the daughter of Louise Lydia (Jettner) and Henry Edward Brezina, was born February 17, 1927 at Northbranch, Kansas. She departed this life on Friday, August 26, 2011 at the Webster County Community Hospital in Red Cloud, Nebraska at the age of 84 years, 6 months and 9 days.

Helen began her formal education attending rural schools in Jewell County, Kansas and moved with her family to the Guide Rock community in 1934. She graduated with a certificate in normal training from the Guide Rock High School in 1945. From 1945-1955 Helen taught area rural schools.

She was united in marriage with Francis "Bud" Wendell Wickman on June 23, 1953 at Guide Rock. This union was blessed with three children. They continued to make their home on the farm southwest of Guide Rock in Webster County. Helen worked with the Guide Rock Meal Site from 1978 through 1990.

Helen possessed a number of interests and activities in her leisure time. She diligently worked for years on the family genealogy history. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing, raising her African violets, and painting pumpkins. She cherished her home and especially looked forward to the time spent with her family. Helen will be lovingly remembered for her patience and kindness.

Preceding her in death were her parents and three brothers-in-law, Wayne Rouse, Rex Fringer and Melvin Seeman.
