Helena Rose Kaczor, daughter of John and Anna Sehi, was born April 9, 1914 in rural Clearwater, Ne.
Helena was the last survivor of her 12 siblings.  She spent her entire life in the St. John’s community of rural Clearwater, and was the oldest parishioner of that Catholic Church.
She was a lifetime member of the Christian Mother’s.  Her father, John, was one of the founding fathers.
Helena was united in marriage to Tommy Kaczor in the fall of 1941.
Their union was blessed with 5 children.
They resided in Holt County, South of Ewing, all of their married lives, where they were both engaged in farming and ranching.
Her greatest priorities in life were caring for her lawn, flowers, garden, baking, playing cards, being a fan of St. Judes, and driving her little white mustang.  These were some of her greatest joys.
Survivors include five children and their families, Lois Schmitt (Bill) of Fort Collins, CO, Bonnie Krebs (Harlan) of Neligh, NE, Gary Kaczor (Cheryl) of Ewing, NE,  Bill Kaczor (Mary) of Ewing, NE, and Becky Mrsny of Fort Collins, CO.
She had 12 grandchildren, and 20 great grandchildren, all who loved her dearly.
Helena was preceded in death by her husband, Tommy, who died in October 1980.
