Helen Bills Bennion died peacefully at her son's home on Sunday, November 22, 2009.

She was born July 29, 1929 on the family's kitchen table. Helen grew up in Sugar House and attended East High School, where she met the love of her life, Keith Bennion. They were married August 18, 1949 and spent over fifty wonderful years together. He preceded her in death on December 28, 2002.

Helen's greatest joys in life were her children and grandchildren. She was a gifted artist but also enjoyed golfing, boating, and going out to eat.

Helen especially loved Cummings chocolates and Diet Coke. One of our vivid memories of mother is at Strawberry Reservoir on the boat, fishing with the volume crank to Engelbert Humperdinck or Tom Jones! Our mother loved to go shopping and could not resist a good sale. But, her best quality was her optimistic approach to life, which is a trait she passed on to her children.

Helen was an active member of the LDS Church. She often said, "the Monument Park Second Ward was the best Ward ever!" She had many callings but her favorite was visiting teacher. She lived in her neighborhood over fifty years and had many great friends and memories.

Survived by; Marcia Bennion, Gail (Ken) Lowe, David (Tricia) Bennion, Joan Bennion, thirteen grandchildren, four 7/8 great-grandchildren.

Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 12:00 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Lawn Mortuary, 2350 East 1300 South, Salt Lake City. A viewing will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. prior to the services.
