     Helen Christina Schaal was born June 30, 1903, in Yale, north of Bethune, to Samuel and Dorothea Bauder Schaal. She was baptized in infancy and confirmed in Immanuel Lutheran Church of Bethune.
     Helen grew up in the community, going to school and helping her parents. On April 6, 1922, she was married to Edward Knodel. They lived on a farm northwest of Burlington until 1962 when they moved to town due to ill health. To this union five children were born: Mabel, who died in infancy, Arthur R., Lawrence, Gladys, and Garven.
      Her main interest was quilting. She made many quilts fro all her grandchildren and many people in the community. She also spent many hours sewing and crocheting, which were also her hobbies.
     Helen had been in failing health the past two years, entering the Burlington Rest Home two years ago. She entered Grace Manor Care Center on Sept. 17, following several stays in Denver hospitals and the local hospital. On Oct. 28, she entered the Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital and on Oct. 29 she passed away.
      She was preceded in death by her parents, seven brothers, two sisters, husband Edward in 1983, and infant daughter Mabel. She is survived by three sons; Arthur and Martha of Kanorado, Kan., Lawrence and Ruth of Burlington; daughter Gladys and husband Jake of Goodland; 13 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
     Funeral services were held Monday, Nov. 4, 1991, at 10:30 a.m. at Immanuel Lutheran church of Bethune, with Rev. Ronald Powers officiating. Burial was in the Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery, with Hendricks Mortuary in charge of arrangements.
     Rudy Schlichenmayer was the organist with the church choir providing the singing.
     Casket bearers were Arthur Knodel, Allen Knodel, John Knodel, Steven Knodel, Timothy Wilkening, and Delbert Richardson. Honorary casket bearers were her grandchildren.
     A memorial has been established for Immanuel Lutheran Church, and can be left at the church or the Bank of Burlington.
