Helen Bloodsworth

Salisbury - Helen Wallace Bloodsworth, 91, died on Friday, February 16, 2018 at John B. Parsons Home in Salisbury. Born on July 6, 1926 in Dames Quarter, MD she was the daughter of the late Norman Irving and Bessie Pauline Wallace.

Mrs. Bloodsworth was educated in the Somerset County School System and after leaving high school she moved to Seaford, and worked for Dupont for about 7 years. Upon leaving Dupont, she moved to Princess Anne, where she met the love of her life, William "Billy" Vance Bloodsworth. After the two were wed, they had three children, Beverly, Joan and William, Jr.; which became most important in Helen's life. Once their children were in college, Helen joined her siblings working as an aide at the Salisbury Nursing Home. She felt working in the nursing home was one of the most rewarding experiences, but did not compare to the experiences of being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Her granddaughters love sharing stories of their times spent with their "Mom-Mom".

Helen was an avid sports enthusiast and was a diehard Orioles fan. Her enthusiasm created many memorable moments in the neighborhood.

She is survived by her children, Beverly B. Elzey and her husband, Bud, Joan M. Sprankle and her husband, Steve and William V. Bloodsworth, Jr.; grandchildren, Kacie M. Hitchens and her husband, Blaine, Kalie J. Sprankle and her boyfriend Cody Biddle, Brittni L. Conn and her husband, Stevie and Kelsie F. Bloodsworth and her fiancé Jay Czajczynski; great grandchildren, Tyler Hitchens, Andrew Hitchens, Callie Hitchens, Christian Conn and Ella Conn. She is also survived by two sisters, Peggy L. Hill and Betty A. Taylor and a brother, James Wallace and his wife, Rachel and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and her beloved husband, Helen was preceded in death by her brothers, infant- Orville Wallace, Norman Wallace, Robert Wallace, Irving Wallace; sisters, infant- Bessie Pauline Wallace, Dorothy Wallace Andrews and Elva Wallace Thomas.

Helen's family would like to thank John B. Parsons Home and Coastal Hospice Palliative team for their incredible care, support and comfort. They would also like to thank special neighbors and friends, Edwin and Jane Ford, for the years of fond memories, love and support.
