Posted in Preston Obituaries

Geri Hellickson, of Preston, died on April 29, 2015 at the age of 77, due to complications from a stroke. She was born June 4, 1937, in Preston, Minn., one of two children to Grant and Ruth (Halvorson) Engebretson. She was baptized, confirmed, and later married at Union Prairie Lutheran Church in Lanesboro.

Geri grew up in rural Lanesboro, attending school there. Geri was united in marriage to Dick Hellickson in February 1955, just celebrating their 60th anniversary. They spent two years living in Kans. while Dick was in the Army, then returned to Preston. Geri worked at the Farm Service Center (formerly ASCS) for 38 years, retiring in November 1996.

Geri enjoyed spending the summers up north at their cabin on Leech Lake, boating, reading, traveling, and spending time with her grandchildren, family, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Bob Engebretson; brothers-in-law, Donovan (Evelyn) Hellickson, Duwaine (Mavis) Hellickson, Robert (LaVonne) Hellickson, Les Hellickson, Roger McKenzie; and sister-in-law, Ardith (Kenneth) Ristau.

Geri is survived by her loving husband, Dick; son, Scott (Andrea) Hellickson; daughters: Teri (Randy) Mensink, Dawn (Devin Nagle) Hellickson; sisters-in-law: Marlene McKenzie, Betty Hellickson; brother-in-law, Gerald (Elaine) Hellickson; grandchildren: Brandon (Sarah) Mensink, Shane Mensink, Brody (Cailea) Mensink, Chelsea (Tyler Speer) Nagle, Connor Nagle, Stephanie (John) Wellik, Jerod (Kristi) Rindels, Shane (Julie) Rindels and Jade (Karisa) Rindels. She is also survived by great-grandchildren: Carter Rindels, Cailey Rindels, Brayden Rindels, Bryce Rindels, Bryant Rindels, Mercedes Wellik, Isabel Field, Rylee Mensink, Olivia Field, Kale Mensink, Remi Mensink, Kaylin Mensink Jack Field, Cade Mensink, and Kypton Mensink.

Geri had a spirit like no other; she was known for making everyone feel like family, always putting herself second, and she enjoyed feeding her guests. She was full of spirit, never missing out on the fun, and you could count on happy hour starting at 5:00!

A celebration of Geri’s life will be held on Friday, May 8, at 11 a.m. at Christ Lutheran Church in Preston, Minn. The family wishes no flowers.

It was Geri’s wish to donate her body to the Mayo Clinic for further advancement of medical education and research.
