January 1, 1925 - July 13, 2018
Helen Ruth Calhoun left to be with her heavenly Father Friday, July 13, 2018. She died peacefully of natural causes in assisted living at Pioneer Village in Jacksonville.
It was just over 93 years ago that Helen came into this world. She was born in Canada to U.S. citizens Hilton and Winifred Hollingsworth, but lived her life on the West Coast, mostly in Ashland.
She was preceded in death by her beloved Charlie and four siblings, Margie, Betty, Phyllis, and Peggy. She is survived by her younger brother, Bill Hollingsworth, and three children, Chuck, Richard, and Diana. In addition, she has 16 grandchildren spread across the U.S.. Those grandchildren who got to know her through visits, loved her very much and are really affected by her passing. Helen was a doer, and volunteered in many ways including the Shakespearian Festival, Red Cross, as a Campfire leader, and at Ashland Christian Church (at 2nd and B St.)
Helen will be missed, but we also know she is happy in a better place. Helen asked there be no service. Any memorial contributions may be sent to the Medford Gospel Mission, PO Box 1172, Medford, Oregon 97501.
