Helen Elizabeth Hausler Melcher

Jesus wrapped his loving arms around our Beloved Mother, Helen Elizabeth Hausler Melcher, on April 9, 2014 and
lifted her from our magnificent planet Earth to take her to her new Heavenly home which he had prepared especially for her. Helen was born in La Grange on March 3, 1921 to her adoring parents, Lee Alfred and Elizabeth Pastusek Hausler. We take comfort in believing that Mom is now and forever lovingly reunited in Heaven with her parents, and her Dear sister Ruth Hausler Manuel, and all her other beloved LaGrange relatives who have preceded her. And we are certain that she is joyfully surrounded with her precious little Poodles, Fifi Larue and Tiny Bubbles. Mom had a good life growing
up in beautiful, peaceful La- Grange; attending college; marrying our Dad Max A. Melcher - her high school sweetheart;
having us two kids; living in Houston’s Spring Branch community; and eventually moving to Lago Vista on Lake Travis
