    Mom was a tireless worker on behalf of her family. She literally was the glue that bound our large and diverse family together. One of her most important goals each summer was to arrange the family reunion with families coming from across the country to attend. We have countless pictures to commemorate those events. Some of her favorite things included the birds and numerous wildlife that frequented her backyard, her pets over the years, including her dog, "Puddin" who was a true companion after many of the kids left home. She also loved cultivating many plants and flowers including spring bulbs, summer annuals and fall mums. One of her most treasured talents was her cooking and baking. The annual tradition of making family favorites like rice and tapioca puddings, pumpkin pie, banana bread and perhaps the most importantly, the batch of Christmas cookies. Mom many times had to multiply the recipes by four to five times to match the need for family and friends. Mom did enjoy making trips to visit family in Kansas, Texas Arkansas, The U.P., Michigan and Iowa. Her love of family was incredible and was an overarching theme of her life, concluding with her entire family by her side in the final days and hours.

    Her Catholic faith was instrumental in guiding the values of her and her family including involvement with the Third Order and Opus Day Circle.

    Helen is survived by her children: Larry Ulrich, Mary Kay Ulrich, Karen (John) Hovey, Cindy (Richard) Luft, Thomas (Wendy) Ulrich, Diane (Bruce) Burmeister, Sandra (Tim) Parker; grandchildren: Tia (Jason) Tapio, Ryun (Amy) Ulrich, Jacob Burmeister, Kari (Remi Soula) Burmeister, Katie Burmeister, Camille Parker, Casey Parker, Brandon (Carlye) Luft, Nicole (Fiancé Adam Olson) Luft, Alex Ulrich, Carter Ulrich; seven great grandchildren; three step grandchildren; four step great grandchildren; three brothers; one sister. She is further survived by her extended family including numerous brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

    Helen was preceded in death by her mother and father-in-law Marie (Bray) and Joseph (Bernard) Ulrich; grandchildren: Jameson Parker and Mary Germaine Ulrich; brothers: David Riedel, John Riedel, Robert Riedel, Jerome Riedel; sister: Sharon Riedel; extended family members including Henrietta St. Martin LaCombe; brother-in-law: David LaCombe; niece: Molly Riedel; nephew: Rich Riedel.

    A very special thank you to Affinity hospice nurses and staff for gently and kindly taking care of mom and allowing us to help keep her home and comfortable.
