Helen's mother provided care at her home until she passed away in 1967. Helen then received treatment at a State Hospital before returning to Fosston. She became a resident for many years in the Johnson Rest Home, and later, First Care Nursing Home (also known as Essentia Health Living Center) both in Fosston.  The family are very grateful for all the fine care she had in both nursing homes, the many workers there also becoming her family.  On Wednesday, February 26, 2014 Helen passed away at Essentia Health Living Center in Fosston at the age of 92 years. Helen is survived by one sister, Rebecca Rud of Fosston.  Also surviving are six nieces and nephews, Wesley Trulsen, Erwin Rud, Arlys Wayrynen, Maurice Borud, Sylvia Larson and Grace Borud.  Great nieces and nephews also survive. Helen was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, Evelyn Borud and Ruth Trulsen, and four brothers, Harold, Clifford, Carl and Leonard Sovick.  Also preceding her in death were a niece, Delores Grundyson, and nephews, Lyle Trulsen, and Maynard Sovick.
