Helen M. Bergmark, of Roswell, passed away Friday, August 4, 2017, at Mission Arch Care Center. Helen was born July 29, 1928 in Tucson, Arizona to Talmadge J. and Susie (Ritenhour) Morehead. She graduated from Tucson High School in 1946. Helen was working as a secretary at Hamilton Air Force Base in California in 1952 where she met her soon to be husband, S/Sgt Robert N. Bergmark. They were married on July 12, 1952 and just recently celebrated their 65th anniversary.
Helen was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Norma Klapmeyer, her brother Edward and her son Paul Bergmark. Helen is survived by her husband Bob, her son John of Vista, California, daughter Susan Middleton of El Paso, Texas, grandchildren Lily Wanner, Neal Bergmark, David Middleton, Robert Middleton and great-granddaughters Natalie, Jaydn and Stacey Wanner.
Helen was a gifted writer and had many items and short stories published. She was also an excellent bridge player, as well as a volunteer at the hospital and at Senior Circle. Helen was also a great lover of animals and always had one or two (or more). Of great concern was that her last adoption, “Beulah,” a mixed terrier, might out live her. “Who would take care of her?” Not a problem.
Funeral arrangements and cremation are being handled by Anderson Bethany, with Interment at Roswell’s Veteran’s Cemetery. A memorial service will be held Sunday, Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Roswell Elks Lodge. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Roswell Humane Society would be gratefully received.
