Helen (Helyn) Dorothy Koschmann, Wausau, died unexpectedly on Saturday, October 6, 2018.

Helen was born February 12, 1920 in Marinette, WI to the late Anthony and Marie (Anderson) White.  She married Donald Koschmann on February 17, 1948.  A loving union of 70 plus years.

Helen had so many interests and talents.  A telephone company employee for years included operating the cord boards as an operator and assisting management.  Her love of reading and the public library continued throughout her life.  Her flower gardens were some of her biggest joys and inspiration to her daughter.  As an avid rock hound, her house and garden were filled with her many treasures.  She captured much of what she saw in her garden and nature in her watercolors that adorn her house.  Helen and Don traveled the world together and spent many a wonderful winter enjoying the sun and friends in AZ.

Helen was an active member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, throughout much of her adult life.  She sang in the choir, taught Sunday School and was a member of the Ladies Guild.  She willingly volunteered her time as a Girl Scout leader and helped at the Neighbor’s Place.

Helen will be missed by her loving husband, Don; her daughters, Cynthia (Edward Mason) Koschmann, Rebecca (Gary) Vaughn; nieces, nephews and friends.

A funeral service for Helen will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (600 Stevens Drive, Wausau, 54401) on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 at 11 a.m.  Pastor Bruce Lamont will officiate.  Visitation will begin at 10:30 a.m. until the time of the service all at the church.  Brainard Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Helen’s name may be directed to; Marathon County Public Library (Wausau), Monk Botanical Garden (Wausau) or St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (Wausau).
