BANGOR — Helen E. Krog, 86, died peacefully Tuesday, March 6, with family at her side. She was born Dec. 5, 1931, in Worcester, Mass., the daughter of Vernon F. and Hazel (Terrill) Harmon.

In 1949, Helen married Vic Krog, who predeceased her in 2007. She retired from her long-term employment, Liberty Mutual, in 1992.
