Helen (Glynn) Hoehn was born on February 8, 1925, in Waseca to Dennis and Gertrude (Kaiser) Glynn. She attended Sacred Heart Catholic School in Waseca, graduating with the class of 1943. Following her education, she worked at Valley News in Mankato. On May 20, 1948, Helen was united in marriage to her soul mate, Linus Hoehn at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Faribault. Together they made their home in rural Janesville and were blessed with five children. Together they shared 69 years of marriage before Linus passed away in February of 2018.
Helen's faith was a very important part of her life. She always made time for the rosary every day. Helen and Linus also prayed once a week for adoration. She was a faithful member of St. Ann Catholic Church in Janesville where she was active in CCW and sewing quilts. Helen volunteered for Life Line for many years and helped with Home Delivered Meals. She was a huge Minnesota Twins fan and never missed a game if she could help it. Helen loved her flower gardens and had numerous beautiful flowers. Blessed be her memory.
