Helga’s parents owned a shoe store in Munich, Germany where she worked while she was in an apprenticeship program in the shoe industry. She met and married her husband Clifford Partlo in 1962. Helga’s value of family was evidenced by her dedication as a military wife, following her husband through various relocations and ultimately creating a home in Toms River, New Jersey. Helga revelled in taking care of other people, and used that passion to pursue her career in elder care. She worked for Bayview Convalescent Center in Bayville, New Jersey for 25 years. After retiring and settling in Whiting, New Jersey she managed to continue this love of people by working for several more years in the Whiting Health Care activities department. Helga dedicated her life to her family. She traveled frequently, spreading her love of travel and learning. She was an enthusiastic bird watcher, always having her binoculars and book ready to explore. Her father was a renowned botanist, and shared his affinity for gardening and tending to flora with her. Helga could name any type of flower just by looking at it. She had an affection for all things creative. She loved cooking, baking, crafting, and the visual performing arts. Helga was a role model to so many, teaching her children and grandchildren to love and live life to its fullest. She created a legacy for her family in the United States and always strived to stay connected to her culture. Helga left an everlasting mark on everyone she loved. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of her family.
