Helen E. Sell Roullier, 93, of Ronan, was called home by her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on March 15, 2020.  

Helen was born in Chicago Illinois, July 9, 1926.  She was the eldest of three daughters to William & Alice Sell, of eastern MT.   The family resided on a farm in eastern Montana until moving to Ronan when the girls were in grade school.   Upon graduation Helen moved to Spokane, WA to attend nursing school.  She returned home to Montana and married Alfred Roullier.   Although eventually divorcing, they enjoyed several years together and welcomed six children: Gail, Steve, Kathy, Fred, Rosemary and Dan.

Helen lived a life of devotion to her family and in service to the Lord.  She worked in the medical field in Ronan for several years until a tragic car accident in 1976, necessitated a change in career.   After a rigorus fight to recover, she accepted a clerical position and continued working for the doctors' office in Ronan until retirement.

Helen was fun loving, light hearted, and enjoyed a good laugh.  She was caring and giving to everyone.  She was the glue, phone book and calendar for the whole family.  She never missed an occasion to send a card with a note.  She enjoyed gardening, dancing and music, but found fulfillment in service to God through her church.  She smiles down upon the family now, as she finally got them all to attend a church service.   She will truly be missed, until we meet again.

Helen is preceeded in death by her daughter Gail Emery, son Fred Roullier and great grandson Cameron Roullier.   She is survived by her sisters: Marjorie Piedalue and Laura Daniels.  Her children:  Steve Roullier, Kathy Roullier, Rosemary (Dick) Abromeit, and Dan (Marlene) Roullier.  Grandchildren: James Roullier, Lindsay Roullier, Libi Johnson, Shawna (Jesse) Croft, Mike Roullier, Brian (Krystal) Piedalue, Gina Roullier, Colton Roullier and Brennan Roullier.  Great grandchildren: Lucas Johnson, Kaitlyn Croft, Duran Roullier, Austin Piedalue, Blake Piedalue and Justice Zareh.

Funeral services will be held March, 21, 2020, 11:00 a.m., St. Paul Lutheran Church 35681 Terrace Lake Road, Ronan, MT.

I remember playing war in your yard in North Crow. Joe Otto, Dan, The Koberg boys and your mom coming out to check on us. She had a little frown on her face and it made me nervous but then she smiled and it was like the sun came out. I remember I felt safe around her. May our Lord bless you all and give you comfort.

God bless you, Aunt Helen! I can hear your voice and your laugh and see you big smile and your bright blue eyes. I'll remember your trip up to Alaska in the 90s forever, it was so wonderful to see you at our cabin in the Wrangells.
For Kathy, Danny, Rosemary and Steve...I sure hope you guys hold each other close through this loss. She was such a good woman. I love you, my cousins. And I hope to see you all again one day.
Love, Jessi Roullier (Mike & Nancy's eldest)

Helen was a wonderful lady. I remember her as a very dedicated and great Sunday school teacher. She never missed church and always had kind words.
