She married Albert Kimich on June 24, 1950, and then returned to Anderson to farm. In addition to farming, she spent years raising her family, working in a furniture factory, and finally working in the school cafeteria where she was famous for her homemade rolls. After retiring she spent her life with her children, grandchildren, and husband until he passed away. Helen, or Grandma Helen as she was affectionately known, spent her whole life taking care of others. As a child she took care of cousins and siblings. Later in life she took care of her mother and mother-in-law. She spent many hours taking care of the elderly in the neighborhood. She loved to cook, and, before catering was common, she and her daughter Maxine would cook large meals for weddings in addition to the weekly family Sunday dinners. She raised a garden for many years canning vegetables for friends and family. She loved to go out to eat as well, especially to her favorite restaurant, 7 Leguas in Montgomery, where all the staff knew her as Mama.
