Helen Saban

Helen Saban was born in Casper, Wyo., the fourth child of loving parents with Irish and Polish heritage. When she was 4, they moved to Worland, Wyo., where she received her education. Helen played the oboe in the high school concert band and worked at the indoor and drive-in movie theater, where she met a handsome young man who later became her husband.

On July 20, 1963, she married Sam Saban and they eventually built and made their home in the Shell Valley, where Helen resided for over 45 years. They enjoyed farming and raising cattle while simultaneously working full-time. Helen and Sam were married for 32 years until Sam passed away in 1996.  Helen continued to farm and raise her beloved Red Angus cows.

Helen retired from the Postal Service in 2001 after 30 years of employment. After which, she worked part-time as a bookkeeper for Greybull Building Center for a few years and started a refinishing business. She truly enjoyed working with customers and their family antiques.

Helen had a generous spirit and believed in giving back to the community by helping out where there was a need. She served on the District Four School Board, was a member of P.E.O. where she was the founding trustee of the Greybull Women’s Scholarship Trust, served on the Shell Hall Board, where she assisted in refinishing the hall floor and oiling the outside of the building, served as a tax counselor for the AARP Tax-Aide program and was an active member of the Whaley Cemetery Board for many years.

She is survived by her brother Verdie, three children Sonja, Paul and Alice, their spouses, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  

She was preceded in death by her parents Ann and Louis, husband Sam, brother Bob, sister Lois and granddaughter Ashley.

At her request, no services will be held.
