Helen Gardner Obituary
Our beloved Mom and friend passed away peacefully at home the morning of Saturday, January 8, 2011. Helen was born May 19, 1916 in Libby, Montana to Frank and Mary Pival. She married Joe Gardner of Seattle, Washington in 1942 and then moved to Lomita where they had resided for 69 years. Both were very prominent and instrumental in the formation of Saint Margaret Mary Parish, and actively supported it for over 60 years, in addition to her many interests. Family and friends were her main passion, enriching the lives of all who knew her. "She was so nice to be around." She is survived by Joseph Gardner of Santa Barbara; Janice Jurey (Jim) of Lakewood; Cheryl Thiel (Terry) of Anaheim; four grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. A special thank you to Mom's caregiver and constant companion, Elvira Menensis, and to the entire staff of Vitas Hospice for their warm, caring and very competent support. A viewing is planned at A.M. Gamby Funeral Home this Thursday, January 13 from 4:00-8:00 pm., Rosary at 7:00 pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Saint Margaret Mary Church Friday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m., followed by interment at Green Hills Memorial Park.
