Private Funeral Mass for Pauline Hellman, 75, of Glen Ullin will take place at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Burial will take place in St. Joseph cemetery, rural Glen Ullin.
Pauline passed away Monday, March 23, 2020 at CHI St. Alexius Bismarck.
Pauline was born November 14, 1944 in Bismarck, the daughter of Valentine and Elizabeth (Jantzer) Schafer. Growing up she attended school in Mandan and graduated in 1962. Following high school she worked as a secretary for Twin City Testing and Engineering. Pauline married Arthur Hellman on November 28, 1969 in Mandan and together they operated a third generation dairy business. It was there that they were blessed with six children.

She was active in her church community, serving as President of Christian Mothers at St. Joseph Church in Grant County. Pauline enjoyed camping -alot and often- and she loved trying new recipes and making German dishes.
