Ella Lisseta Louise Maschman was the fourth of thirteen children born to Ben and Anna Maschman.

Helen married Leland Jordening and they had at least four children: Merlene, Carlyn, an unnamed stillborn child, and Betty. At least one source lists a fifth child, born after Carlyn and before the stillborn child, who was also named Betty. If true then this other "Betty" must have died prior to the 1940 U.S. Census because she is not listed there.

Ella and Leland lived on the farm originally purchased by Henry Jordening. For a time, both families shared the same house until Leland's parents decided to move into Daykin. Leland's doctor eventually suggested that Leland take life easier, so they moved into Fairbury.

Ella and Leland are members of Grace Lutheran. Ella belongs to the same quilting group that her sister Ida belongs to.

Helen died in 2000 and is buried in Fairbury Cemetery in Fairbury, Nebraska.
