Helen B. (Olson) Holman, age 86, of Janesville, passed away Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, at Cedar View Health Center. She was born Oct. 29, 1926, in Iola, WI, the daughter of the late Oliver and Nora (Engebretson) Olson. On May 28, 1949, she married Wayne L. Holman at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Iola. Helen worked for many years for the Parker Pen Co. in the Tabulating/Payroll Dept. She, then, later worked as a Bookkeeper for Parker Pen Credit Union, now PCCU, from which she retired.
Helen was a very active longtime member of First Lutheran Church, and was a tireless volunteer helping with most any function that needed workers. She very much enjoyed gardening and fishing. She and Wayne loved to travel, and enjoyed their many trips to spend time with their sons and their families! Helen was a wonderful cook, and most enjoyed cooking Norwegian dishes at holiday times.
Helen is survived by her husband, Wayne; her two sons, Philip ((Patricia M.) Holman of Chico, CA, Curt (Patricia A.) Holman, of Hortonville, WI; her brother, Kenneth E. Olson, of Iola, WI; her three beloved grandchildren: Allison (fiance, Matthew Sheperd) Holman, Matthew Holman, and Melissa Holman; her two God-daughters, Sharon Olson of Roscoe, IL, and Diane Pett of Milton; and by many nieces, nephews, and friends. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her two brothers, Raymond Olson and Emery Olson.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, 2012, at FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH, 612 N. Randall Ave., with Rev. Naomi Garber officiating.
