Helen Asbury passed away at her home with her family by her side on Monday, Dec 15, 2008 at the age of 82.
Helen was born on Nov 15, 1926 in Parkston, SD to Julius and Bertha (Leischner) Reimann. As a young child, Helen and her family moved to Hood River where she attended Hood River High School and met her future husband VIRGIL ASBURY. Virgil was in the Navy. When Virgil returned from the war in 1944, Virgil and Helen were married on Aug 6th. They moved to Hillsboro for a short time where their son Bob was born before returning again to Hood River. Daughter Judy joined the family two years later. As a family, the Asburys enjoyed time spent together camping and traveling backcountry roads on their Hondas.
Helen worked at the Hood River Hospital before going to work for Dr. Leonard Hoffman for close to thirty years . After retiring she enjoyed craftwork which included sewing tea towels and making decorations for her family. Helen enjoyed gathering and playing cards with her friends at the Adult Center. Helen especially cherished the time spent with her family. All of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were very important to her and to them she was more than a mother, grandmother or great grandmother. She was a friend.
In addition to her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Virgil in 1981, and her three sisters, Eldora Reimann, Leona Collins, and Betty Leedy.
Helen is survived and will be greatly missed by son Bob Asbury and daughter-in-law Karen; daughter Judy McNeill and son-in-law Ron; grandchildren Ryan Asbury and his wife Lark; Bobby Asbury and his wife Shawna; Jeff Gehrig and his wife Amy; Jenny Hall and her husband Davey; Josh McNeill and his wife Kristen; and Ryan McNeill; and two great grandsons, Blake and Drew Gehrig.
At Helen's request there will be no funeral services. A private family service at Idlewilde Cemetery and a family gathering was held on Friday, December 19th. Helen's family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Hospice of the Gorge in her name and sent care of Anderson's.
