She married Ronald Helwig on December 26, 1957. They shared over 60 years of marriage. To this union they were blessed with their son, Shawn Helwig.
Edith worked alongside her husband on the family farm. Their goal was to be able to buy their own farm. This became a reality in the early 1970s when they purchased Willow Creek Farm located in between Eleva and Mondovi. In addition to helping raising the calves, she always went above and beyond as a homemaker. From preparing outstanding meals, to canning what she grew in her garden. During retirement she volunteered with Ronnie for assistance with medical transportation and meals on wheels.
She was longtime member of Our Savior’s United Methodist Church. She was a volunteer for UMW, and participated in several of their events including the mother daughter banquet and the Christmas walk.
