Happy Birthday, Helen!

This is a very special day...a day to give thanks.







Helen Trostle Ettline
was born
99 years ago
on January 9th,
1911.









Things to know and remember about Helen:

* Helen loved horses and was a skilled rider.

* Helen married John in Texas prior to his joining
the U.S. Army and serving in WWII.

* Helen was patient and tolerant.

* Helen was a great listener.

* Helen was a warm, gracious hostess.

* Helen had a winning smile.

Every evening while Helen worked behind the Dell's lunch counter preparing treats to feed the masses she enjoyed listening to a steady stream of doowop era oldies that played on the restaurant jukebox.

Let's celebrate Helen's birthday by listening to one of her favorites: "Two People in the World" by the Imperials, a Dell classic that I affectionately nicknamed "Helen's Song."



Happy birthday, Helen!

We love you and miss you!
