Helen P. Bach, 94, of Kenosha, died on Sunday, June 12, 2011, at St. Joseph's Home For The Aged, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Chicago, Ill., on March 4, 1917, she was the daughter of the late Anton and Pauline (Komada) Babros. She was a 1935 graduate of Mary D. Bradford High School.
On June 29, 1940, Helen was united in marriage to Martin Bach at St. Mary Catholic Church. He preceded her in death on March 2, 1995.
The newlyweds lived in Chicago for two years, during which time Helen was employed by Federal Reserve Bank. When Martin enlisted in the service, Helen returned to Kenosha, where she worked in the Tabulating Department at American Motors. A devoted mother, Helen left the workforce to raise their children. Once they reached school-age, however, she was recruited to work part-time for Kenosha Unified School District- Recreation Department's Gold Age Club. She served in that capacity for 20 years. In 1972, she was hired to become the first Program Director for the Kenosha Senior Citizen's Center. She loved this job, but welcomed her retirement on May 22, 1983.
A member of St. Mary Catholic Church, she served for two years as President of the Altar Society and was a member of the Catholic Woman's Club. She was a Boy Scout den mother and past-president of the Roosevelt Elementary PTA.
In her free time, Helen enjoyed dancing, traveling, reading, trips to the casino and doing things with her grandchildren.
Surviving Helen are her two children, Dr. Barbara Bach of Virginia and Martin (Kathy) Bach of Kenosha; her five adored grandchildren, Timothy Johnson, Kristine Johnson, Julie A. (Andy) Kindsvater, Jeanette (David) Kukoda and Charleen (Scott) Geissman; six cherished great-grandchildren, Matthew, Christopher, Andrea, Alex, Aidan and Jake; and two precious great-great-grandchildren, Jaslene and Matthew.
Helen was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and her brother, Edward Babros.
Funeral services for Helen will be held on Thursday, June 16, 2011. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 12 p.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church, 7400 39th Ave. Entombment will follow at All Saints Mausoleum.
