Helen Mary Cruice (nee: Rossman), age 93, died Monday, March 18, 2019 at My Doctors Inn in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Helen was born on April 22, 1925 in Detroit, Michigan, daughter of the late Jacob and the late Mary (nee: Avender) Rossman.

Helen was truly a selfless woman. She gave up her dream of finishing high school to become a caretaker for her mother who could no longer care for herself. Helen loved her family and would do anything for them. She came from a large extended family and enjoyed spending time with her many cousins.

On October 12, 1946, Helen married the love of her life, Robert, in Ohio. The couple originally settled in Detroit, but eventually moved to St. Clair Shores to raise their family. Helen was a consummate homemaker who spent every day taking care of her family.

Helen and Robert, after many years of hard work, decided to finally retire to their home in Gladwin, Michigan on the Tittabawassee River. Helen and Robert loved to have the grandchildren stay with them whenever they could.

When Helen was not spending time with her beloved family, she enjoyed playing cards,...especially Euchre. Helen was always baking. Although she loved to bake various things, she was famous for her Dundee Cookies and Cinnamon Cake. Not only did Helen love to bake, she also loved to make homemade Jam.

Helen enjoyed traveling. She always went to where her family was living which included Florida, Colorado, Tennessee, and Illinois.

Helen was the beloved wife of the late Robert. Dear mother of Kathleen (Ron) Griswold, Carleen (Robert) Britton, Robert (Pamela) Cruice, and Susan (Randy) Apczynski. Loving grandmother of Jason (Kelly) Griswold, Richard (Anne) Griswold, Anne Britton, Michael Britton, Paul DiGiovanni (Fiancé Andrea), April (Kevin) Kotermanski, and Rachel (Tyler) Williams. Cherished great-grandmother of Gracie, Ellis, Kole, Ryder, Henry, Abigail, and Kolton. Sister of the late Frank (Ouida) Rossman and the late Elizabeth (Tony) Levigne.

A Memorial Visitation will be held on Friday, April 12th from 2:00 pm until time of her Memorial Service at 5:00 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Road) in Warren.
