 Born October 17, 1923 in Frankfurt Germany to Bertha Stranck and Hans von Munderloh. She came to the United States of American aboard the USS United States Royal Napoleon Sheltra in May 5th, 1953, married on Feb 5, 1954 and she had two sons, Eric J. Sheltra (4/19/1955)and Marc H. Sheltra (6/8/1957).

She had served as a member of the German Naval Submarine Intelligence during  WWII and as a translator in the French Diplomatic Corp. after the war. It was here she met the love of her life after assisting him with his divorce papers.

Helga loved animals and people never running out of time to help either nor measuring her efforts. Neighborhood children and seniors adored her. Actually, anybody who took the time to answer one of her friendly hellos did. She was engaging, eager to learn about people and cultures and totally selfless.
