Mrs. Michlowsky passed from this life on Sunday, February 10, 2019, at a local hospital. Helena was born in Warsaw, Poland on October 11, 1925.
Mrs. Michlowsky has been a Killeen resident since the early sixties. She attended mass at The Main Post Chapel Catholic Church for many years. Growing up in a heavily conflicted Europe during World War II made a profound statement on her life. Experiencing the hardships of the war first hand led to a childhood where she grew up very quickly. The reality of war time shaped the strong and faithful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother that she became. Helena met the love of her life, a young Army soldier, Anthony Michlowsky, while both were living in Germany after the war. They were married and then moved back to the states to continue Anthony’s career in the military. Together they made the best of life through thick and thin. Helena and Anthony were happily married for more than sixty years. Anthony passed away in 2010. They have been reunited and are once again enjoying each other’s company. Helena spoke many languages including Polish, German, English, Ukrainian, Russian, and French. She enjoyed working outside in the flowerbeds and garden as well. Mrs. Michlowsky lived a simple life where she was a homemaker and took pride in caring for her family. Above all else her family was her greatest treasure in life. She had a special bond with her grandchildren and even helped raise a few. Helena will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
Those left to honor and cherish her memory are her son, John Michlowsky and wife, Barbara; daughters, Diana McDonald, Angela Collins; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
Condolences from the Corbett Family. She will be missed
