She left her home on 23 March on a journey to Astoria, Oregon to join her husband. Travelling with her were her husband's eldest son Viktor and her daughter Salli. Another child Eino had resolutely refused to "go with them to drown" and had to be left in Rauma.

Originally scheduled to travel aboard Olympic, upon arrival in Southampton her daughter Salli became ill and their departure was postponed. They eventually boarded Titanic on 10 April 1912 as third class passengers (ticket number 370129 which cost £20, 4s, 3d). (Actually they are listed in the Olympic passenger lists of Ellis Island).

Information that did not reach the husband until a fortnight later. When they did not reach Astoria he started to make investigations and eventually found out they had died. On 8 June the son in Rauma was informed by telegram.

£100 in compensation was later paid to the husband. The bodies of Helena and her children were never found.
