April 6, 1933 — Nov. 18, 2013
Unexpectedly on Monday, Nov. 18, 2013, surrounded by her family and loved ones, Jeanie was called home to the Lord. She was a vibrant, kind, compassionate lady who lived each day to the fullest. She was born in Patterson, Calif., but after moving to Placerville 60 years ago, there was no other place that she would call home but here. She will be missed everyday.
Jeanie is survived by her twin brother, John Knutson (Lynn) of Las Vegas, Nev.; the love of her life, Bill George of Placerville; daughters, Cindy Helms-Pyle of Sparks, Nev., Leslie Helms-Joost (David) of Adin, Calif., and Erin Helms-Lara (John) of Georgetown, Calif.; grandchildren, April, Justin (Carla), Dennis (Jessica), Andrea, Kelly, Amelia, Rachel and Katie; and great-grandchildren, Alisa, Austin, Mason, Logan, Riley and Lily.
A celebration of life will be held in January 2014. Details will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers a memorial account has been established at El Dorado Savings Bank, to be dispersed to the various charities Jeanie was involved in.
