Tribute to Helen Boettcher

I saw the other day that Helen Boettcher had passed away. Helen was born on August 13,1915 and passed away on January 22, 2011. She was a wonderful lady and someone who I have very fond memories of as she was the true matriarch of the Fonda Golf Course.

I first met Helen in 1964. She was the club house manager at the golf course and was always there. Helen was a very good player in her own right and so was her husband Kelly and son Gary.

Helen was totally committed to the golf course and in my opinion it was a very large part of her life. She put on the tournaments, help start the junior golf program as was always there to encourage you and congratulate you when you had a good round.

Helen was also a very good bridge player as she was given the “Life Master” award as well as being someone who enjoyed crafts and spending time at the Sunrise Tavern that she and Kelly owned for 40 years.

Thank you Helen from all of us. You made our lives much better and you will be missed.
