In Loving Memory of our Dear Neighbor Helen Svenson

A big ray of sunshine has left Angle Lake with the passing of a beautiful neighbor and friend to all, our dear Helen Svenson. Helen passed from this world into the loving arms of Jesus on July 16, 2020.

Helen was born June 30, 1931, in Centralia, Washington, where she lived for 18 years. After graduating from Centralia High School, she followed her future husband, Sven Svenson, to the University of Washington. They were married in 1950.  After Sven graduated they moved to White Center, then, in succession, bought a small house at Star Lake, a house in Des Moines, and then, in 1965, a beach cabin on Angle Lake, which over many years was transformed into the lovely place it is now. Sven enjoyed the home he built until he passed away in 1999.

Helen really loved living on the lake and the people of the Angle Lake community, attending the many fun events over the years.

Helen bore Sven three sons, Steve, Russ, and Craig. They are all happily married to Merry, Diane, and Marla. Grandchildren include Melissa, Tyler, Michael, Cynthia, Craig, and Mark. Lately, she especially enjoyed her great-grandchildren Raven, Justice, Aiden, Sophia, Lily, Miller, Emelia, Quinn, Mitchell, and Killian.

On Thursday, July 30, a viewing will be held at the Newell Hoering Mortuary in Centralia at 9 am, to be followed by a family graveside service at Claquato Cemetery in Chehalis.
