    We are saddened to hear of Helen’s death. She was a marvelous woman, with a heart of gold. She provided our family with so much information regarding the Priesters and Doubeks from way back in their earlier days in Anamoose. Our sincere sympathy goes out to her family.

    I am also a Daughter of John and Leone(Priester) Doubek. I was very saddened to learn of Helen’s death. I visited her last year when back for my Aunt Esther’s 80th birthday celebration. She shared photos, books and let us take pictures of her pictures. She told a great story of her Father going to bat for our Grandfather, August Priester, to get him hired by the railroad, despite the fact that he had a “gimpy” leg. (her words).She said he was never sorry for it. She also told funny stories about our parents. My deepest sympathies are to her Family and Anamoose, as they have lost a real treasure!
