Helen L. Schuh, 94 of Colby died on Friday June 25, 2010, at Colonial Nursing Home in Colby.

Helen L. Steffen was born on September 18, 1915, in the town of Beaver to Lena (nee Hahn) and Emil Steffen.

She married Herman Griesbach in 1947. He died in 1952. In 1964 she married Henry Schuh and they farmed in the Green Grove township until the time of his death.

She is further survived by her grandchildren, Tammy Griesbach of Colby, Jeff Griesbach of Colby, Tiara Tilch of Colby, Colton and Autumn Werner of Medford and Cassius Griesbach of Colby; and many nieces and nephews.
