The death of Mrs. Helen Brons (nee Fullawka), 97 years, of St. Mary’s Villa, Humboldt occurred on Wednesday, October 18, 2017. Helen was born on July 18, 1920 at Tiny, SK to Tom and Angela (nee Sliwa) Fullawka. She grew up on the farm and attended the local country school to Grade 8. Helen stayed at home to help her parents with the farm work as well as domestic duties. She married Edmund Bigoraj and they were blessed with three children. Sadly, he passed away in 1950 and she was left with three young children to raise. On September 12, 1951, she married August Brons. They were blessed with three more children and together they raised their family of six on the farm near Lake Lenore. They enjoyed their life on the farm and visiting with neighbours, playing cards and dancing. Helen always grew a large garden and enjoyed the canning, preserving and cooking that went along with that. She loved watching the soaps, especially “The Edge of Night”, which she would stop everything for. In 1983, August and Helen moved to Humboldt. She enjoyed bowling and won several trophies and awards over the years. Helen also loved going to Bingo each week and the visiting that went with the game. She was a member of the CWL for many years and volunteered as an usher at church, which she took great pride in. Together, they made many trips to the USA to visit family and made a few trips to Germany. Following August’s death in October 2011, Helen remained living on her own until the spring of 2016 when she moved to Bethany and then in July 2016 to St. Mary’s Villa, which has been her home until the present.
