Helen Wieting

Helen also called Ella was known for her love of the arts and the communities that she had lived in. After her husbands death she donated theatres to the communities of Worcester and Toledo Iowa. These theatres were intended to enrich the communities and carry on the name of her late husband. Her desires were realized since both theatres live on today, still carrying the Wieting name.
