Helms, Caroline Houseman 03/18/1916 ~ 10/22/2014 "A Life Well Lived" RANCHO SANTA FE-- Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great- grandmother, Caroline Houseman Helms passed away on October 22, 2014, at the age of 98. Mere words cannot express the loss that our family is now experiencing. She was the most kind, gentle, generous lady that we will ever know, and a shining example of love for all of us. Married to the love of her life, Paul Hoy Helms Jr. for 71 years, Caroline was the mother of two children, Suzanne and Paul, grandmother to eight, and great-grand- mother to thirteen. She touched countless lives, and people who knew her were better for it. Caroline was a tireless volunteer who supported many worthy causes, was a longtime Sunday school teacher, and very active in her church. She was a member of a book club, a bowling league, enjoyed golf and because she and Paul attended Stanford University, she was an avid Stanford fan. Caroline was a mentor to all of her family, and a guiding light in the good and not so good times that happen in all of our lives. Her light which shined on all of us will never be forgotten or extinguished; she now joins Dad Helms in heaven where he has been patiently waiting for her for the past six years.
