She was born on March 9, 1952 to Aloysius Henry and Katherine Salois. She was raised in Box Elder and graduated from Box Elder High School in 1970. She lived in Montana her entire life with homes in Box Elder, Havre, Great Falls and Missoula.

Helen was a warm-hearted person and she was loved by all who knew her. Her home was a place where all were welcomed. When family and friends would gather for any reason it was always at her home. She was the glue that held us together. She worked various jobs including Havre Laundry, First National Laundry in Great Falls, Northern Winz Casino and Consumer Direct. Her first job was always taking care of her family.

Her hobbies included gambling, playing bingo, traveling, shopping, collecting frogs and, of course, spending time with family.
