ANNE VERONICA HELLING Obituary
Helling, Anne Veronica, was born January 7, 1913 in Sligo, Ireland. She passed away on April 14, 2014 in Oceanside, California. Anne was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Arthur Helling. She is survived by her son, James Helling of Carlsbad; daughter, Julie Mandell (Dennis) of Laguna Hills; grandchildren, Ryan and Sean Mandell; and two great grandchildren. As a teenager, Anne and her siblings came to New York City through Ellis Island. During her time in New York she worked as a medical stenographer and made many lifelong friends. A wonderful correspondent, she kept in touch with these friends throughout her life. In the 1940s she joined sister Eileen and brother-in-law Larry when they moved to University Place, Washington. It was in Washington she met and married Arthur on April 9, 1949. In 1960, having had enough of the Washington climate, the family moved to Orange where she would live for 45 years. She was a member of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Orange and the Elks Lodge. Anne had opinions about everything, a seemingly unlimited energy to keep up with her yard, her grandchildren and to travel, often spontaneously, visiting friends and relatives. Her lively spirit will be missed. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 26 at 12:30 pm, Fairhaven Memorial Services, 27856 Center Drive, Mission Viejo. She will be laid to rest at Fairhaven Memorial Park, 1702 Fairhaven Avenue, Santa Ana.
