Helen Louise (Buzzard) Rogers, was born June 23, 1928, and entered into rest May 21, 2019. Helen was born in Hopkins, Missouri to Loren Johnson Buzzard and Garland (Bird) Buzzard. She grew up attending various country schools as a child, and graduated Bedford High School in 1946. After graduation she completed her Normal Training and then taught country school in Taylor County for the next four years. On May 8, 1949 Helen married Delbert Richard (Dick) Rogers. To this blessed union two daughters, Mary Lou and Jeanne, were born.

As Helen and Dick raised their family on the farm Helen wore many hats. She was an excellent quilter, seamstress, cook, and gardener but was equally adept at driving a tractor and chasing unruly livestock. Together they enjoyed the farm life and all that it had to offer. Helen was very involved with her children's activities through the years including teaching Sunday School and being a 4-H leader. In her later years Helen enjoyed working at various businesses in town including The Style Shop, Shehan's Shoe Store, The Flower Shop and Lucas Dad and Lad.

Helen enjoyed quilting in several different local clubs, tending to her flower gardens, making thousands of pieces of Christmas candy through the years and discussing "politics." However, her greatest love was her family.

Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Dick; parents, Loren and Garland; father and mother in-laws, Reid and Garland Rogers; son-in law, Jack Bowman; son-in law Gary Klassen and great-grandson, TJ Castillo. Helen is survived by her children, Mary Lou Klassen, Jeanne (Dennis) Crawford; two grandchildren, Nathan (Alicia) Crawford, Keri (Josh) Castillo; five great-grandchildren, Tyson Crawford, Betsy Crawford, Crosby Crawford, Hallie Castillo, Brynn Castillo; sister, Lois (Glenn) Clark; nephew Marty (Stephanie) Ohm; great-niece, Allie Ohm; great nephew, Max Ohm along with many other family and friends.



May God grant comfort and strength to those who mourn Helen's passing.
