Helen M. Craig In Memoriam
HELEN M. CRAIG Born June 18th, 1924 to Stanley and Mary Shedlowsky Last year on Dec. 12th, 2013 our sweet, kind, wonderful and loving Mom left those she loves on earth to be with those she loves in heaven. She is not only a wonderful and loving Mom to Gary & Deanna, Linda, Beethie, John & Kathy, but a wonderful and loving wife to her Bob-our Dad, Gramma to Robbie, Bean & Tammy, Wenzie & David, Kelly & Carlos, Erica & Joey, and Charlie, GG to Hayden, Kammie, Jose, Gabby, Enrique, Ethan and Jetta, Mama Helen to Deanna and so many others, sister to Aunt Fran and so many more and Aunt (way too many to list), and always such a wonderful and caring daughter to her parents. She is all of ours best friend. Her family has always meant everything to her, and she has always loved us with all her heart and soul. Our Mom was born in Dearborn, Michigan in 1924 and moved to California in the early 1940's to be in the movies (she was in two movies, The Gangster and The Big Clock). It was during this time that she met our Dad (my Bob, as she would always say) and our Dad told her - which our Mom always loved to repeat throughout the years - "that if you're the kind of girl I think you are you won't last long in this movie business." Those were the only two movies that our Mom was in. Our Mom and Dad were married in 1947 in San Diego and bought their first house in La Habra in 1953, moved to Northern California briefly in 1971, built a house together in Canyon Lake in 1975, which is where her Bob passed away in 1981, and just like our Mom our Dad's family has always meant everything to him and he has always loved us with all his heart and soul too. Our Mom then moved to Menifee in 1988 where she lived until she passed last Dec. 12th. Our Mom is a very, very special lady who has made a lot of people very, very happy with her presence here on earth - from her parents and brothers and sisters to her Bob, her children, grandchildren, great-grand-children, and her first great-great grandchild - from her many friends throughout the years to her in-laws who also became her family, her nieces, nephews and extended family of many. Mom, all of us love you and Dad very, very much and we know you and Dad will always be with us, looking out for us, helping us and, most of all always loving us. Our Mom and Dad have always had a tremendous amount of compassion and caring for all people, but always a special place in their heart for those people who are hurting - either emotionally, physically, spiritually, or financially - so please, to honor them and any of your loved ones who have gone to heaven, let's all try - although it's not always easy - to be a little extra thoughtful and kind to our family, our friends, our co-workers and our fellow human beings - not only now at Christmas time - but all year long. That will make them both very happy. We love you Mom and Dad with all our hearts and souls.
