Obituary for Robert E. Helgerson

Robert Edward Helgerson passed away February 24, 2019. He was born April 8, 1927
the son of Otto and Violet Helgerson. Bob was graduated from Cornell High School. He proudly served his country, enlisted in the United States Navy and was honorably discharged.
Bob married Carol M LaValley on November 6, 1948.
Bob was employed at the Cornell paper mill his entire working career. At his retirement
he held the position of Production Supervisor. He was a member of Our Savior's Lutheran
Church. Bob is survived by his brother Harold (Marge) three children, seven grandchildren, and fourteen great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Carol and daughter Marilyn.

Carol and Bob Helgerson were united in Marriage on November 6, 1948 at Our Savior's
Lutheran Church in Cornell, WI. They lived their entire married life in Cornell, celebrating
seventy years of marriage in 2018. They made their home on eighth street until November of
2018 when they moved to the Cornell Care Center.
To this marriage four children were welcomed into their lives. Robert "Mike" (Nancy),
Kathleen Zuehl (Jim), Marilyn, and Barbara Ewings. As their children grew, they enjoyed many
activities as a family - camping, hunting, fishing, traveling, and attending school activities. Later celebrations of graduations, weddings, baptisms, and the births of their grandchildren they happily embraced.
After Bob's retirement they traveled extensively in the United States. They traveled to
Sweden, Germany and Carol's mother's birth place, Norway. Many good friends were made in
these travels.
Carol continued to be active with the activities at the church particularly the music
department. Knitting, sewing, reading and working crossword puzzles were her favorite hobbies.
Bob enjoyed hunting with son and grandchildren. His favorite activity was keeping the
large lawn mowed with his tractor. He enjoyed sitting outside in the summer visiting with his
brother Harold.
Among their greatest blessings are their beloved grandchildren who lovingly call them
Grandpa and Grandma: Matthew (Tracy), Andrew (Stephanie), Michael, Rachel (Marshall),
Nathan (Roberta), Stephanie (David), Jason (Erin) and great grandchildren: Marit, Merrick,
Björn , Graham, Ellie, Claire, Evan, Cadence Marilyn Kay, Maddie, Parker, Bryanna, Bryan,
Makenzie, and Morgan.
We are grateful for all the love and guidance they gave us and values they instilled in all
of us. We will dearly miss them but they are forever in our hearts - two beautiful souls called
home. "Memories keep a song in your heart" so many memories and so many songs.
Their funeral services will be held together at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Cornell, WI. with Pastor Andy Schottelkorb officiating.
