    So sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She was a big part of St. Mary’s for years. Fred and I should be able to come to the funeral.

    So sorry for your loss, Maureen. It is an empty feeling when both parents are gone, no matter what age you are. My sympathies.

  4. Cathy Henke says:

    Helen was a very classy lady who was so nice. Her needlework was totally awesome and I know all of you have some of that to remember her by. Being we both liked Precious Moments, she would share with me the ones she was working on and also completed. They were beautiful!!!! They were done as neatly as she always was. May God bless all of you!

    Dear family and friends of Helen Bittner, Helen was my “down the hall neighbor” at CHI Riverview. Helen was a regular prayer-partner at our 5-days/week Eucharist celebrations; she was a woman of both personal and public faith…following the Lord Jesus Christ as a “missionary-disciple” to her last days on earth. May the Lord Jesus, Risen Lord and Merciful Savior now greet her in the glory of God’s Eternal Love…where we are loved and known in a joyful one-to-one relationship with God, our Abba Father, and all of God’s saints and graced people. Joyful blessings, dear Helen.

    Our sympathies to all of you. I always smile when I think of your mom because she always was smiling. Such a gentle soul and we were blessed to have her in our St. Joseph parish for those years before moving to Fargo. May she Rest In Peace.
