Mary Helen Dillingham Obituary
1931-2018

Mary Helen Dillingham passed away peacefully at her home in Stevenson Ranch, CA on July 7, 2018. She was born June 29, 1931 in Nogales, AZ.

Helen married George Dillingham in 1950 and was with him until they separated in 1978. During her time here with us she worked at Lockheed Martin as an Office Secretary from 1940 to 1954. For the next 20 years she was a stay- at- home mom until 1979 when she re-entered the work force, first as a clerk typist, who then worked her way up to becoming an Administrative Assistant before her retirement in 1999

In Helen's spare time she enjoyed traveling to San Ramon and Portland, OR to visit with her grandsons, traveling to New England, The British Isles. She was lucky enough to have been able to take a Rhine/Danube River Cruise and had many fun memories while traveling to Italy.

Helen's other passions were spending quality time with family and friends or watching her favorite BBC programs, along with the Hallmark Channel and anything and everything about Christmas.

She is survived by her daughter Carol Jane Dillingham and son Jeffrey Alex Dillingham. She was preceded in death by her daughter Susan Lynn Dillingham. Helen had 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren, and is also survived by her sister Alyce P. Lopez and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
