Helen Worthington was a social worker and was involved in a number of social causes throughout her life. In 1930, she was living in Omaha Social Settlement, an organization which strove to help immigrants integrate into American life.

From Bill Fawcett's book:

HELEN M. WORTHINGTON GAUSS was born on April 9, 1881 in St. Louis, Missouri to William Theodore Gauss and Helen Worthington (St. Louis Health Dept birth #2172 Book 30). For a decade (1889-98) her family lived in Boston. In 1898 Helen M.W. Gauss graduated from the Cambridge Latin (High) School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She graduated from Radcliffe College in 1901. She also attended Framington High School (2 years). She joined her parents in Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado (1902-14?). Helen M.W. Gauss attended Colorado College, while living with her parents at 228 N Cascade Dr (1902) and 1925 Wood Ave (1903 Directory; Gauss 1982). Miss Helen Gauss returned home on December 10, 1914 after an extended visit to Jacksonville, Illinois and Denver (Colorado Springs Gazette 12/13/1914). Because of the similarities in their names she may at times be confused with her mother. Miss Helen Worthington Gauss was living in Omaha, Nebraska at the time of her father’s death (Colorado Springs Gazette 11/15/1928:1). At some point after 1930, Miss Helen W. Gauss returned to Colorado Spring. She was a member of the Tuesday Discussion Club (1942-45 [Rasor 1995:56]).
