Helen L. Vogt, age 88, of Holstein, formerly of Galva, passed away on Friday, May 05, 2017 at the Horn Memorial Hospital of Ida Grove.  A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 10:00 AM at the St. John’s Lutheran Church of Galva with the Rev. Paul D. Egger officiating.  Burial will be at the St. Johns Lutheran Cemetery of Galva.  A visitation will be held on Tuesday, May 09, 2017 from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM with the family present from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at the St. John’s Lutheran Church of Galva. 

 Helen L. Vogt was born September 10, 1928 to Haakon and Helga (Laurenson) Christianson in Sloan, Iowa.  Helen was united in marriage to DuWayne Vogt on May 7, 1955.  To this union four children were born, Randy, Curt, Twila, and Mark.  They raised their family in Galva, Iowa where they were members of St. John’s Lutheran Church.

    Helen was a homemaker who cared about the well being of everyone.  She loved to go camping and enjoyed pulling campers across the United States with DuWayne.  They were campground hosts in Storm Lake, Crawford Creek and Fort Pierre, South Dakota.  She enjoyed helping the children with special needs to fish in Pierre, South Dakota.  

    Helen was a longtime resident of the Good Samaritan Society in Holstein, where she loved to do ceramics and go on outings.  She always had to have her fingernails painted and her hair done each week. She enjoyed playing BINGO, going to the casino and fishing but made sure to have her lipstick on before going anywhere!

    She is survived by her children, Randy Vogt of Galva, IA, Curt (Shirley) Vogt of Galva, IA Twila (Mike) Albers of Holstein, IA, and Mark (Mary) Vogt of Galva, IA; 16 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; brother, Harold (Dori) Christianson of Sergeant Bluff, IA; brothers-in-law Tom Brown of Omaha, NE and Don Vogt of Oklahoma; sisters-in-law Marcelene Vogt of Dow City, IA and Colleen Ashfield of Oregon; and many nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

    She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, DuWayne; parents-in-law, Minnie and Jack Vogt; great-grandson, Lathen Rohlk; brothers Art Christianson and Harry Christianson; sisters, Esther Conway and Palma Conway; brother-in-law, Gary Vogt, sister-in-law, Yvonne Brown and Unabell Vogt.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Good Samaritan Society for the 11 years that Helen lived there; she loved everyone!
