  2. Helen and my mother Mary Lou Rupp, were both involved at St. Robert’s, and were good friends. They were fans of one another and talked each other up. What a great, long, fruitful life Helen was able to live. The Mohr family was blessed with her spirit. We can only celebrate her life, and be happy that she is in God’s hands now.

  3. So sorry for your loss. I know Helen will be dearly missed by her beautiful family. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with with all of you. Deepest sympathy and love, Mike and Colleen Sellers

  4. Mrs. Mohr was a second mother to many of us growing up in Forest Hills. She always tasked me to keep her sons Mark and Greg out of trouble. She helped shape who I am today. I hear her saying “Straz, keep them out of trouble” Grateful to have known her and to have been a part of her extended family.
