March 1, 1934-May 31, 2014

Helen J. Nagorski (nee Clendenning), surrounded by her loving family, passed peacefully into God’s hands on May 31, 2014, at the age of 80, after a long and very courageous battle with cancer.
Born Helen Jane Clendenning on March 1, 1934, in Milwaukee, she was a very loving and devoted mother to: Diane (Gary) Hineman, Stone Bank; Doreen (Jerry) Wendt, Manitowoc; Dawn (Mike) Sowlles, Oconomowoc; Denise (Todd) Blaubach, Saukville; and Chester (Lori) Nagorski, Milwaukee. She was a loving and cherished grandma to: Jennifer (fiancé, Brian) Puffer, Sandra Wendt, Josh (Rachel) Wendt, Justin (Kristin) Hineman, Sarah Nagorski, Janelle Hineman, Travis Nagorski, and Johnathan Blaubach; and loving and cherished great-nana to Waylan Kouby. She is further survived by sisters: Donna (Lester) Rivers, Plainfield; and Barbara Polakowski, Appleton; brothers: James (Patricia) Clendenning, Nekoosa; William (friend Shirley) Clendenning, Wisconsin Rapids; and Thomas (Linda) Clendenning, Plainfield; sister-in-laws of: Gail Clendenning, Caroline Clendenning, Plainfield; and Carol Clendenning, Reedsburg. She is further survived by many other loving relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents: Wesley and Marie (Fitzpatrick) Clendenning; two brothers: Patrick and Michael; and brother-in-law: Jerry Polakowski.

A devoted Packers fan, she cheered the team on every chance she got. Helen loved and very much enjoyed spending time with family and friends, never missing an opportunity to make her famous cheese tortes for any gathering. Helen was a proud retiree of Universal Brixius, Inc.
A memorial gathering and Holy Mass in celebration of Helen’s life was held on June 14 at St. Jerome Catholic Church, 995 S. Silver Lake Street, Oconomowoc.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Helen’s name can be made to Angels Grace Hospice in Oconomowoc or to Phil’s Friends,, a nonprofit foundation supporting those battling and touched by cancer.

The family would like to extend a sincere heartfelt thank you to the compassionate staff of Aurora Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic, The Palliative/Hospice Team, Angels Grace Hospice and St. Jerome Catholic Church.
