On April 4, 2017, our very precious Mom, Granny, Aunt, friend, etc., went to be with her Lord in Heaven. Helen Pearl porter Lundberg was born in Dickens County, September 4, 1915, to Samuel Lewers Porter and Alice Pearl (Lea) Porter. She was the eighth of nine children, and the last to join them in Heaven. Each of the nine children only married once, so they called themselves "the 18." What fun they had together!! After high school graduation as Valedictorian of her class, Helen went to Texas Tech in 1933. Upon graduation in Elementary Education, she began her 30+ years teaching career. She later obtained her Master of Education degree. Not only did she teach primarily 1st grade, she was always teaching family members, friends, church members, and anyone who wanted to learn from her vast knowledge. She met the love of her long life, Russell Lundberg, in the mid- 1930s, as he worked on the Matador Ranch, next door to her family ranch.
