A special message from
Captain Travis W. Matheson
Washington State Patrol
“I am saddened to announce that HRD Volunteer Helen Klauk passed away at her home in Lacey, WA om March 11, 2018. She is survived b her son Steve, daughter-in-law Wendy, and two granddaughters.
In addition to Helen’s distinguished 43 ½ year WSP career, she was a steadfast volunteer in HRD for years following her retirement. She was the WSp’s volunteer of the year so manytimes that she asked to be removed from future consideration even though she continued to volunteer. She was an HRD icon and someone widely admires and respected for her work ethic, knowledge, compassion, and sense of humor. She will be dearly missed by everyone that knew And worked with her.” -Captain Travis W. Matheson.
In Lue of Flowers the Family has asked that you make a donation in Helen’s Memory to Kitten Rescue in Shelton, WA.
