Immediate Family

About Helen Tas (Teschner)

Helen Teschner was my grandmother's sister. Helen was a child prodigy on the Violin and performed for many years in grand concert halls in New York, Philadelphia, and other locations. Moira Craw Schur wrote that her great grandfather, Dr. Jacob Teschner, M.D., was called to the home of the Tas family in Holland to help with her future great uncle's, Bobby Tas's illness. Dr. Teschner met his brother, Emile Tas. Later, Dr. Teschner and his wife, Goldine Strauss Teschner, and their surviving children, Helen and Ruth, would travel to Holland for an introduction to Emile. Helen could not speak a word of Dutch and Emile spoke very little English, but their parents thought it was a match made in Heaven and the rest is history. Helen and Emile would have two daughters, Marjorie and Jeanne. Jeanne died at the age of 21. Marjorie would marry Norman Warren Schur, originally of Boston, and have four children including Joanna, Warren Michael, Moira, and Geoffrey.
