Helen Rothwell Obituary
Helen Joyce Rothwell

Our beloved Helen Joyce Rothwell of Gardena passed away peacefully January 5, 2016 at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, William and Ava Rothwell, in Lomita. She was born in Los Angeles on July 12, 1931 and remained in Southern California. She was preceded in death by her parents Myrtle and Lloyd Thomas, her husband William James Rothwell, and her daughter Kathleen Colton.

She is survived by her son William Leonard (Ava) Rothwell, granddaughter Genia (Frank) Donaldson, two great granddaughters, Tayler and Sydney.

Helen was an incredibly bright, spirited, and selfless woman, mother and friend. She graduated from Fremont High in 1949. Helen worked as a teacher's assistant with LAUSD at 153rd St. School in Gardena. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting, gardening, her pets, and spending time with her family. She reached out to all people in need and her many acts of kindness will linger on as a beautiful legacy to her family.
