Helen M. Houston

July 11, 1945 — January 10, 2020

Helen Marie Houston was born July 11, 1945, in Dunlap, Iowa, the daughter of Henry and Lorena Berens. She passed away Friday, January 10, 2020, at the Denison Care Center at the age of seventy-four.
Helen received her education in the Dunlap schools and graduated from Dunlap High School with the class of 1963. She was united in marriage with Roger Houston June 15, 1963, in Dunlap, Iowa. Her years of employment included working at Dubuque Pack, being a homemaker, owner of a bar and then trucking from which she retired in 2007.
Reading novels and love stories was her favorite pastime. She also enjoyed poker playing as well as other cards, watching Everybody Loves Raymond and Iowa Hawkeye football, camping in Yuma, Arizona, and visiting with friends and family. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, her family was very important to her and she instinctively needed to care for her family first before caring for herself. She was a wonderful homemaker, housekeeper and cook, especially in making chicken. Helen was impeccable about dressing properly.
Helen was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Kathleen; and four brothers, Jack, Joe, Ed and his wife, Meridel, and Howard. Survivors include: her husband, Roger; one son, Joe and wife, Lori; one son-in-law, Thomas; four grandchildren, Zachary, Daniel and wife, Raquel, Vanessa and wife, Sara, and April and husband, Maxwell; seven great-grandchildren; one sister, Pauline and husband, Don; two sisters-in-law, Darlene and Susan; other relatives and friends.
