Mary Helen Lawrence, 79, of Moorhead, MN, passed away on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, in The Meadows on University, Fargo, ND.
Mary Helen Hill was born on January 31, 1940, to Donald and Mary Elizabeth "Babe" (Hilgendorf) Hill, in Minot, ND. Mary Helen was raised in Minot. She received her high school diploma from Sacred Heart Academy, Minot.

Mary Helen was strong in her Catholic faith. She regularly attended mass at St. Francis de Sales in Moorhead and was a Catholic Daughter and Christian Mother.
