Helen Potrament, 90, of Lancaster, Minn., passed away at Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D. on Monday Oct. 19, 2020.
Helen Lucille Boroski was born May 2, 1930, in St. Joseph Township to Steven and Kathryn (Kuskinski) Boroski. She grew up attending school at South St. Joe School in rural Lancaster.
On Sept. 18, 1945, she married the love of her life Lawrence Potrament. Together Lawrence and Helen had one child, Rodney Lawrence Potrament who was born on Feb. 19, 1946. She enjoyed a life of farming, which included milking cows, raising pigs, chickens, sheep, ducks, geese and horses. She also ran her Super 92 and the 44 Massey Harris, all of which still run today. Helen had many joys in life including visiting with family, taking care of her flowers and plants, hunting, fishing and trapping anything she could. She also enjoyed cooking many of her famous dishes, if there ever was a holiday or get together she was for sure the one to bring her cabbage rolls. Playing cards was also an enjoyment in Helen’s life. She would never let the little ones win, as she wanted to teach them to never make that mistake again. In telling all of her wonderful stories, Helen always had such colorful language.
