Helen L. Kern

January 3, 1935 — June 19, 2019

Helen L. Kern age 84, of Greenville, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Wednesday, June 19, 2019 in her home under the care of her loving family and Great Lakes Caring Hospice. She was born January 3, 1935 in Remus, the daughter of Homer & Donna (Snyder) Nadeau. Family was everything to her. When hearing of a family get together, she was the first one in the driveway with a delicious dish to pass, always cherishing every moment spent together. This included her extended family, second and third cousins. She was a member of St. Charles Catholic Church, #1 warden of her four daughters, and was the bookkeeper for many of their businesses. She enjoyed monthly luncheons with her close friends and in her early retirement, volunteered at Spectrum Greenville. Helen and Gary would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on July 10, 2019 and their love affair was one we all wished we had. Traveling was one of her passions and she was able to experience many beautiful destinations. She loved to reminisce about her beautiful life and cherished her many friends and family. She loved to have fun, therefore she earned the nick name of “Helen, I just want to have fun Kern”. Helen is survived by her husband Gary of Greenville, daughters Stacey (Todd) Taylor of Rockford, Joni (Todd) McArthur of Greenville and Marda (Troy) Edwards of Belding as well as her many grand and great grandchildren; brothers Jim (Cathie) Nadeau and Bob (Diane) Nadeau both of Lakeview; brother in law Jerry Sydow of Florida; several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and special friends whom she called family. Too many to name. She is proceeded in death by her parents, daughter Kristy Jo Kern-Miller, sister Darlene Sydow and several cousins. Visitation will be Thursday from 4 to 7 PM at St. Charles Catholic Church, Greenville, with a Rosary recited at 7 PM. Funeral Mass & Committal Services 11 AM Friday, June 21, 2019 at St. Charles Catholic Church, Greenville with visitation 1 hour prior. Father Jim Wyse presiding. Luncheon immediately following Funeral Mass at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Belding, MI. Memorial contributions can be made in Helen’s name to St. Charles Catholic School.
