Helen's youngest daughter Pat Mueller told us about her mom. She called Helen "Milwaukee's Betty White."
The adoring grandmother and great-grandmother enjoys working. K-Ranch owner Jerry Kotarak refuses to let her retire.
"I won't let her go,” he said.
K-Ranch has been a dining hot spot since 1958. It's famous for its homey atmosphere and good food. Patrons come back year after year. Many say it's great food, good prices and friendly faces like Helen's. Helen usually works the kitchen but helps out where needed.
Even Chef Larry Burss admits she keeps him in line.
"She says, ‘Larry if I can't work for you I don't know what I'll do. I'll probably die. ’ So it's a blessing," he said.
Helen has worked in food service most of her life. She retired from Ladish after 34 years. When her husband died in 1995 she returned to work three weeks later at the age of 75.
