Helen Elizabeth Bagley Cummings entered Heaven August 31st, 2014 where she is finally able to fill her lungs without any struggle
Helen was born in Norfolk, Virginia on August 26th, 1946. She grew up in Bellingham, WA and attended grade school and high school there.
Helen was a loving mother to all three of her children and their spouses; Jeff and Sally Cummings, Ted and Cindy Cummings and Jennifer and Rajesh Raghani. One of the greatest joys in her life was being a grandmother to her six grandchildren; Jennifer Ovel, Jeffrey Cummings, Timothy and Elizabeth Cummings and Rajan and Priya Raghani.
She was preceded in death by her mother Ivey Sawyer Bagley, her father Richard Warren Bagley, and her brother Richard Warren Bagley Jr.
Helen was an active member of Edison Lutheran Church for many years while she was raising her family and for the past 22 years had been faithfully attending Bethany Covenant Church.
In January 2014 she retired from Skagit Recovery Center after 17 years of working in the kitchen and lovingly feeding the residents and staff.
Helen found joy in baking and friendship. More often than not she could be found in the kitchen preparing meals and baked goods for friends and family. She cared for and loved people by serving them delicious food.
A memorial service will be held at Bethany Covenant Church located at 1318 South 18th Mount Vernon, WA on Friday September 5th, 2014 at 1:00pm. Memorial gifts may be made to Bethany Covenant Church Diaconate Fund.
