Helen Bertrand Obituary
Bertrand, Helen

Helen Barbara Bertrand, 90, Green Bay, passed into the arms of Christ Jesus on Thursday, August 14, 2014. She was born March 25, 1924 in Daggett, Michigan to the late Maria Wirtanen (Virt). Helen moved to Green Bay at the age of 12. She was a 1944 graduate of Green Bay East High School and took several classes at NWTI. For most of her career, she was an accountant at Liebert's Auto and Motor Supply and later at the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District until her retirement at age 62. Helen was active most of her life and a member of the YMCA where she loved to attend swim and water aerobic classes several times a week. She loved her children, cherished her dog, Tiffany and enjoyed caring for her home.

Helen is survived by two children: Michael (Donna) Bertrand, Pulaski and Kathleen Bertrand, Redlands, CA. She is also survived by two grandchildren, Paul and Brian Bertrand.

She was preceded in death by three brothers and a sister: Ed, George, Betty and Fred.

John 1:12-13

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
