Obituary for Helen Bak (Munkvold)

Helen  Bak (Munkvold)
Helen Evangeline (Munkvold) Bak, age 98, passed into God’s Loving Hands on Friday October 6, 2017 at Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Viborg SD.
Helen was born to Ole and Ethel (Husby)Munkvold on March 14th, 1919 and was baptized and confirmed into the Lutheran Faith. She was married to Arthur E Bak on August 10, 1938 at Mission Hill SD and to this union four children were born.
Together Art and Helen owned and operated The Gamble Store in Irene from 1946 until they retired from the retail business in 1969. Helen was an active member of Calvary Lutheran Church, WELCA/Calvary Women. She was also a Charter Member and Queen Mother of the Irene Red Hat Valley dolls.
Helen has always lived life to the fullest and would never miss the action. She loved to camp, travel and just a few memorable trips to mention, a Mexican Cruise, a 50th Wedding anniversary cruise, a trip to Norway, Branson Mo, a surprise trip to the Hills with two of her granddaughter-in-laws. Most of all Helen really enjoyed her snowbird trips to Texas with her beloved Art. As many of you recall, Helen very much enjoyed her card games, especially her pinochle night with friends and family. Helen also had a love for bingo.
Helen entered Pioneer Memorial Nursing Home in December of 2013. She was preceded in death by her husband Arthur, son in law Lloyd Mork, her parents, one sister Maxine Giggee, one brother Richard and In Laws Mikkel and Annie Bak
Grateful for sharing her life include, sons David(Linda), Larry (Carol), Ronald (Sandra) Bak, daughter Vicki Mork, all of Irene, 8 Grandchildren, 23 Great-Grandchildren, 3 Great-Great-Grandchildren, Sister Doris (Frank) Bryant, Sister-In-Laws June Munkvold, Martha Soeth, a host of Nieces, Nephews and Friends
