She was the daughter of Perry and Gladys (Dickinson) Roberts. Helen was raised on the family ranch near Hulett, where she also attended school. At the young age of 16, Helen was united in marriage to Frank Ridinger on June 24, 1948, in Gillette WY. To this union, 8 children were born: Jim, Kathy, George, Penny, Terry, Jerry, Johnie, and Gail. Following their marriage, Frank and Helen started up the family ranch near Alzada Montana where they lived the rest of their lives. For 13 years, Helen worked as a “grader” at the Neiman Saw Mill and prior to that she worked at the Cash Store. Helen was gifted at many things. She was a dedicated mother and ranch wife who cooked and baked and milked cows and cared for the lambs and sheep as well. She had a talent with crafts, including leather work and crocheting. She was a member of Rangeland Ministries Church in Alzada and Helen’s faith in Christ was the foundation of her life. She loved her family so much, and she will be greatly missed. Helen is survived by her children: Jim (Christie) of New York, Kathy Bressie of Alhambra CA, George (Marlene) of Alzada MT, Penny (John) McPherson of Overland Park KS, Terry (Mark) Huseby of Hulett WY, Johnie (Julie) of Alzada MT, Gail Ridinger of Hulett WY; 11 grandchildren; and 11 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Diana (Donald) Anderson of Hulett WY; sister-in-law, Betty Roberts of Hulett WY; several nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Frank; son, Jerry; grandson, Travis Huseby; and brother, Donald Roberts. In the sweet by and by We will meet on that beautiful shore Oh, how that hymn rings true Now that Helen’s here with us no more.   She’s on the other side, and she’s so happy No pain or suffering comes her way She’s smiling, laughing, filled with joy On the other side of Jordan – a brand new day.   And Helen can see her Savior My how good that must be! Is she sitting, kneeling, or arm in arm? Some day we’ll get to see.   For now, we’ll dwell on her great love For me, my family, and friends Her twinkle, her smile, her charm We’ll treasure that to the end.   I’ll fly away oh glory, I’ll fly away When I die hallelujah by and by, It’s my future and it brings great joy Knowing I’ll see my mom, when I die. ~M.Leverington~
