Helen Nord, of Mora, passed away on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at the St. Clare Living Community in Mora.  She was 90 years old.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE will be held at a future date.

Nord, Helen Marie (nee Fredin) of Mora, formerly of East Bethel and SE Minneapolis passed peacefully 9/6/20.

Helen was born on July 9, 1930 to Mabel E. (Kilmer) and Mauritz E. Fredin in Mille Lacs County, MN and later moved to Isle, where she graduated Isle High School in 1948. She married Richard in 1950 and when he returned after serving in Korea, they settled in SE Minneapolis where she gave birth to “the 3 D’s”. In 1973 they built a home in East Bethel and relocated to Fish Lake in Mora in 1993. She moved to St. Clare Living Community in 2012.

Helen touched many lives with her kindness and generosity – she was a wonderful hostess and effortless cook, loved to bake and was the finishing touch on many of Richard and Debbie’s craft projects. She was a quilter, knitter, bird watcher and set the bar for making potato salad. She had a wry humor and a solid relationship with God, most recently at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Brunswick.

Preceded in death by husband Richard, daughter Debra, sister and brother-in-law Sandra and Leroy Nelson, brother Stanley Fredin and sister-in-law Clarice Nord.

Survived, loved and missed by daughter Denece Strandlund and son Dave (Sigrid); grandchildren, Katie Strandlund, Steve Strandlund, Jr. (Kayti), Seth and Sam Nord; great-grandsons Hayden and Hudson Strandlund; brother Kenneth (Lucille) Fredin of Isle, brother-in-law Robert Nord of Plymouth; numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, great-grand nieces and nephews as well as many friends and family.

  1. I got to know Helen while working in the hair salon at St. Clare’s. She was so much fun and always had such good stories. She thought so highly of her family and her eyes lit up when she talked about her great grandson. I haven’t seen her in quite a while, but miss visiting with her. She was such a lovely lady. My sympathies to her family.

  2. Helen was a lovely person. She was an important part of Immanuel Lutheran for many years and the Nords were a wonderful asset to our church and church friends.
