Pearl Helmer


Pearl’s life began on March 16, 1936, in Okeene, Ok.  She is the daughter of Edwin and Alice (Weigand) Seibel.  Pearl attended school in Marion, where she met Ezra Helmer, and they were united in marriage on November 28, 1952 in Marion.

Pearl’s most important profession was that of a homemaker to her husband and four children.  She also worked at Ron’s Cleaners for nearly 20 years and was an excellent seamstress.  Pearl was a member of the Eastmoor United Methodist Church and involved in the United Methodist Women’s projects, especially the cookbook projects.  She had been a member of the Neo-Century Club and enjoyed camping and fishing with family.  Pearl looked forward to flea market finds, being together with her friends, and trips to Colorado.

Her greatest joy was her family which includes her son Dennis (Marsha) Helmer of Wichita, her late daughter and son-in-law Denice ( Raymond ) Bina, sons, Douglas Helmer of Salida, CO, and Darin (Jan) Helmer of Marion; grandchildren Ramie (Jake) Seymour, Nichole Bina, Ryan (Kelly) Bina, Chuck ( Kristen) Bina, James (Olivia) Bina, Andrew (Molly) Bina, Amanda Bina, Aaron (Tara) Bina , Danae (Josey) Weaver, Jennifer Helmer, Michael Helmer, Lauren Helmer, David (Hilary) Helmer, Chris Helmer, Matt ( Rachel) Helmer and Jim (Chelsey) Helmer and 27 great grandchildren.

Pearl passed away on February 28, 2023, at Parkside Homes in Hillsboro.  She is preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Alice Seibel, husband Ezra, and daughter Denice and son-in-law (Raymond) Bina.
