Helmer, age 100, passed away on August 31, 2021, in Fargo, ND. Even in his last days, he was clear of mind and visited with his family. Helmer was born to Henry and Anna (Arndt) Grewe on March 20, 1921, in Stowe Prairie, Todd County MN. He graduated high school with the Hewitt Class of 1940. Helmer married Dorothy Jean Holm on September 5, 1942, at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bartlett Township, MN. He was known to be a hard worker, dedicated in doing the tasks of a farmer. After retiring from farming, he worked as a welder for the Pre-Fab business in Deer Creek. Helmer was always glad to lend a hand to anyone who needed help. In his spare time he liked to watch all sports; especially the Wadena-Deer Creek Girls Volleyball. He rarely missed a game! Having lived in Deer Creek for over 70 years, community was important to Helmer. He was a charter member of the Deer Creek Lions, participated with the Trinity Lutheran Men’s Club, and over the years, served as an Elder, Chairman, and Sunday School teacher at each church where he was a member. In addition, he served on the Deer Creek School Board and Deer Creek Township Board, along with being an election judge. Preceding Helmer in death were his wife of 67 years, Dorothy (1-5-2009); parents, Henry and Anna; son-in-law, Charles Boe; siblings, William, Alfred, Gerhardt, Ervin, Ernest and Betty; including infant siblings, Elizabeth, Dorothea and Herbert; and in-laws, Fred and Alma Holm. Holding memories of Helmer will be his children, Carol Boe of Casper, WY, Linda (Bob) Hagen of Rotonda West, FL; Terry (Brenda) Grewe of Battle Lake, MN, and Garry (Tina) Grewe of Perham; 10 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren; brother and sister-in-law, Charles (Sharon) Holm and sister-in-law Margie Rach. Active pallbearers will be fellow members of the Deer Creek Lions. Following the lunch, burial will be in the Wadena Cemetery, Wadena, MN.
