HELEN "OMA" HENRIETTA SCHAENE Helen came into this world September 17, 1928 in Aachen, Germany and received her angel wings December 16, 2020 in Pahrump, Nev. She was one of those beautiful people who touched so many lives in her 92 years on this earth. She was a beautiful soul. Helen was a beloved mother, Oma (grandmother in German), sister and friend. An avid baker, she loved to bake & cook and made everything with a pinch of this, a dash of that and lots of love. Many know her from "Omas German Baked Goods & Jams"; a cottage business she started in her 80s, where she always had a cheerful greeting, a cookie and a smile for everyone. She was preceded in death by her mother, Wilma Schaene and father, Hermann Schaene; sister, Margareta Wilms; son, Troy Rotnem; her ex-husband, John A. Rotnem Sr.; beloved son-in-law, Peter Hartmann. She was survived by her sister, Hannelore "Hanni" Schlosser; her children, Helen "Liebchen" Hartmann, Robin (Linda) Rotnem, and John A. (Ute) Rotnem Jr.; her grandchildren, Glenn Woodruff, Heidi Woodruff (Ron) Brown, Wendy (Andy) Zimmermann, Tamera Rotnem (Rassule Khatibi), Brooke (William) Cruikshank and Rachel (Tedd) Rotnem-Ullom.
