Helen P. Soukup was born on December 20, 1925 in O’Neill, Nebraska to Joseph and Frances (Jirak) Soukup. She attended country school and 9th grade at O’Neill High School. She then helped on the family farm.

Helen married Fred McCart on April 26, 1948 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in O’Neill. To this union, seven children were born; James, John, Charlene, Robert, Francis, Richard, and Sharon. The couple made their home on a farm northwest of O’Neill. In 1970, the family moved to O’Neill. Helen worked at the O’Neill Public Schools in the Lunchroom from 1972 until she retired in 1999.

She was a lifelong member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in O’Neill and a member of the Altar Society. Helen loved to sew, was an avid reader, and was hard to beat at checkers. Company was always welcome, and she enjoyed having people over for a meal or a cup of coffee. Helen was a talented baker, known for her rolls, kolaches, and pies. She loved kids, especially her grandchildren, always keeping a freezer stocked full of their favorite cookies. Helen’s faith in God was important to her and she always covered her loved ones in prayer.

Helen is survived by her three sons, Jim (Margaret) McCart of Norfolk, John (Vanessa) McCart of Timnath, CO, Bob McCart of Ashland; two daughters, Charlene (Junior) Young of O’Neill, Sharon (Lowell) Schroeder of Stanton; 18 grandchildren, Mike McCart, Mindy McCart, Jamie (Ben) Hupp, Shane McCart, Kimberly (Mark) Henderson, Justin (Melinn) Young, Crystal (Tyson) Shoemaker, Jacque Elliot, Marcus McCart, Julie McCart, Jeff McCart, Chasity Jenny, Savannah McCart, Charlie McCart, Shantel McCart, Jamie Hallock, David (Ashley) McCart, Matt (Marisa) McCart; two step grandchildren, Chris (Tamzen) Jenkins, Tracey Volquardsen; 38 great grandchildren; 3 step great grandchildren; one great great grandson; brother, Frank Soukup of O’Neill; and many nieces and nephews.

Helen was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Frances Soukup; her husband, Fred McCart in 1996; two sons, Sput McCart and Dick McCart; one grandson, John Daniel Young; and two sisters, Angela (Donald) Marcellus and JoAnn (Gene) Carr.
