Mrs. Helen Jean St. Pierre

Mrs. Helen Jean St. Pierre entered life eternal on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, at the age of 81 in Newnan, GA.

Helen was born on Dec. 13, 1931, in Mankato, KS. Her parents were the late Edward Mog and Rose Bednasek Mog. She married Keith St. Pierre in 1955 at the Presbyterian Church in Concordia, KS.

After graduation from Mankato High, Helen went into nurses training at the St. Joseph Hospital in Concordia. There she received her RN and worked at the hospital before she married Keith St. Pierre. Surgical nursing was Helen's favorite specialty. After marriage, Helen continued nursing in Southern Illinois and in the Chicago area. After the birth of their two daughters, Helen became a homemaker. 

She loved her family, flowers and plants, home decorating, cooking, entertaining, sewing, church work, caring for others, school volunteering, pets, travel, music, and even worked as an Avon sales associate. After Keith's retirement, they lived in Kerrville, TX, for three years and finally ended up in Peachtree City, GA so they could be closer to family. There, Keith and Helen were members of Faith Lutheran Church in Sharpsburg, GA. The last four years, Helen has resided in Newnan Health and Rehab in Newnan, GA.

Helen is survived by her two daughters, Debra One (Darryl) from Modesto, CA and Anne Tarbutton (Greg) from Vilas, NC. Her surviving grandchildren are Rebekah and Rachel One from Long Beach, CA and Michelle Sandrock (Mark) from Atlanta, GA and Jeremiah Tarbutton from Houston, TX. Her surviving sisters are Norma Bingham (Bill) and Connie Scheffer, both from Salina, KS.

Helen was predeceased by her husband, Keith St. Pierre, and brother, Willis Mog (Nancy).

There will be a viewing/ visitation from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.at Chaput-Buoy Funeral Home in Concordia, KS on Friday, Oct. 11. Family will welcome visitors from 12:30-2:30. Then, at 3:00 there will be a graveside service at Pleasant Hill Cemetery. Later, there will be a memorial service and gratitude luncheon for staff at Newnan Health and Rehab in Newnan, GA on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 11 a.m.

Much gratitude is expressed to the staff at Newnan Health and Rehab for their outstanding care for Helen the last four years.

In closing, Helen's own words from a 1979 Christmas Letter:

"What is Christmas? For you we wish many good things at Christmas. The tenderness for the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future. That everyone overflows with blessings rich. Someone to care and share with you Christ's birthday, the joy of making someone else happy who is less fortunate than we and, best of all the deep love of finding anew the light that shines from the humble manger is strong enough to brighten our way to the end of our days."
