Brown, Helen J. VanAlstine
October 14, 1934 – December 10, 2018

Helen Jean VanAlstine Brown, 84, passed away in her home on December 10, 2018. She was preceded in death by her husband Nolan (2015), her son Kevin (2006), her beloved sisters Lois Dalstra (2012), Marjorie Lake, and her brothers Donald (2018), Lyle, Burt and Raymond VanAlstine. She is survived by her daughter Kimberly, her husband Roy Bloomer, granddaughters Katy Holmquist, Brooke Brown, Sierra Brown, and brother Elmer (Maxine) VanAlstine.

Helen was born in Grant Center, Michigan to Bud M and Mary E (Thumser) VanAlstine. She met Nolan while working at the Pioneer Paper in Big Rapids, Michigan and they married when he returned from active military service in Germany. After Nolan graduated from law school at the University of Michigan, they moved west with daughter Kimberly to Colorado to build their life. Kevin joined the family in 1964 and made it complete. Helen and Nolan loved doing things as a family and enjoyed camping and fishing in the mountains.

Helen’s primary passion was always her family. She held a degree in Early Childhood Education, taught pre-school, worked as a field researcher for the University of Michigan and spent many years volunteering for various charities. Helen was a strong, loving, caring, independent woman who will be greatly missed. A memorial service will be held in the spring.
