Helen Jane Herson

Ingalls, MI

Helen Jane Herson, 79, passed away April 3, 2021 surrounded by her loving family.  She was born June 18, 1941 to Helen & George Ochs in Wolverine, Michigan.

She graduated from Wolverine High School Class of 1959.  Helen married Kenneth Herson on September 15, 1962. Helen is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 58 years; their daughters, Karen (Frank) Medrano and Sharon; their grandson, Patrick (Misty) who they lovingly raised; granddaughters, Jessica (Ben), Sierra (Zach); grandsons, Brandon and Mark; and great-grandchildren Haylie, Waylon and Ellen. She is also survived by her brothers, Ralph (Doreen), Lyle; sisters, Mary, Char (Doug), Judy (Clayt); brother-in-law, Jerry Herson; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother George and many other loved family members.

Helen enjoyed collecting precious moment figurines, reading, playing cards and scrabble games.  Her family was the most important thing to her. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the staff at Regency of Lansing West for the compassionate care they gave Helen.  The staffs of the Fresenius Kidney Care center of Lansing West and the DaVita Dialysis center of Marinette, WI. We would also like to thank Char and Doug Herson and Justin Svinicki for always being there when they needed help.

The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, at St. Mary Cathedral, Lansing. The Rite of Committal will follow in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery, Lansing. Visitation will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday at the church.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Mid-County Rescue Squad in Stephenson, Michigan, the National Kidney Foundation or the American Cancer Society.  Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.

To Ken, Karen, Frank, Jessica, Sierra and Patrick
Helen was a kind a gracious lady, always a kind word when ever we talked. I know how proud she is of you Karen and Frank and how you have always been there for her and Ken. And as for Patrick she too had told me on several occasions how proud she is of you and your accomplishment!
We can all know that she is at the big dinning table, in no pain and free of the damn dialysis three times a week!
Love and prayers to all of you!

I’m very sorry for your loss. Helen was a GREAT woman! I took countless naps at her and Kenneth’s house before sports games and always left there well fed! She was a blessing to so many!
