Bonnie Mae (Lenius) Helgren was born June 20, 1932, in Dilworth, MN, to Clifford and Evelyn (Garrow) Lenius. Bonnie was raised and educated in Dilworth where she graduated from high school in 1950.

On April 8, 1950, Bonnie was joined in marriage to her grade school sweetheart, Paul Helgren. Bonnie and Paul made their home in Dilworth on the Helgren Family Trucking Farm where they both worked and raised their three children.
