Helen Smith

Circleville, Utah

Helen Lynne Kessler Smith, 76, of Circleville, Utah, our wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away May 20, 2020 at Hospice of the Valley, Sherman Home, in Phoenix, Arizona with her family by her side.

Helen was born February 9, 1944 in Brooklyn, New York. She moved to Las Vegas with her family as a child and graduated from Las Vegas High School. Helen married her true love, Eugene Franklin "Gene" Smith, on April 22, 1967 in Las Vegas. They also raised their daughter in Las Vegas. Helen worked for the Clark County School District until 1990 when she and Gene retired and moved to Circleville for the next 28 years. After Gene's passing she moved to Peoria, Arizona to live by her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren.

Helen will always be remembered for her witty sense of humor, generosity, and her never ending love for her family and her friends. Helen loved to have visits with family and friends, talking on the phone, venturing out to eat at restaurants and going shopping. Her grandchildren were the light in her life, and she was very proud of them. Helen was very easy to talk to and made friends easily. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Helen is survived by: her daughter, Melissa (Troy) Christensen, Peoria, AZ; grandchildren: Adrie, Andie, Cash and Ben; brother, Michael (Charlotte) Kessler, Las Vegas, NV; niece, Lisa Kessler; nephew, James Kessler, both of Las Vegas.

Helen is preceded in death by her husband, Gene; grandson, Chase; and parents, Milton and Muriel Levine Kessler.

Her family would like to thank Hospice of The Valley, Sherman Home, for the loving care they provided to Helen, and the whole family. Their kindness will never be forgotten. Also, many thanks for our dear friends and extended family who have been so helpful and offered much comfort to us during this difficult time.
