Helen was born October 16, 1923 in Edison, NE to Clyde Stark and Nellie McCauley. She grew up and attended schools in Hastings, NE. Helen loved music and loved to dance, so upon graduating high school she packed her belongings and made her way to California to pursue her dreams. It was there she actually met her dream, Mr. Charles Franklin Pierce. They were married on June 3, 1950, several months after they first started dating. The couple celebrated over 59 years of marriage until Charles death in 2009. Helen worked days as a telephone operator and took dance lessons in the evenings never losing her passion for dance. Later in her career she studied interior design at Riverside College and opened her own interior design studio, Gallerie Of Interiors which she operated for a number of years. She is survived by four children, Jeffre Stankiewicz, Steve Pierce and his wife Susan, Greg Pierce and Joel Pierce and his wife Stacy; five grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
