Obituary

Helen Blakeslee, age 95, of Twin Falls, Idaho passed away peacefully on January 5, 2021 at Grace Assisted Living, where she was loved and taken care of for several years.

She was born on November 16, 1925 in Belpre, Ohio. She grew up in Ohio and at the age of 18, she moved to Washington DC with her older sister, Lelia and worked as a secretary. While in DC, she met a sailor, Glenn Blakeslee, who was there on leave. They were soon married and moved to his hometown of Filer, Idaho. Eventually, Helen ended up moving to Gooding, Idaho where she lived for about 60 years or more teaching everyone, in the county, how to knit. She shared her talents with everyone, while also tending a huge garden and baking her famous pies, for neighbors and friends. She started working at the Mod-O-Day dress shop in 1972 and loved it very much.

To know Helen was to love Helen. She enjoyed years of bowling with her friends and she also taught herself how to golf. For a long time, the golf course was the only place to find her. She really could make anything fun.
Helen is survived by her three children: Richard Blakeslee, Harold and Sharon Blakeslee, and daughter Jenny Lee, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

A viewing will be held on Monday, January 11, 2021 from 5-7:00pm at White-Reynolds Funeral Chapel. Friends, family, and others touched by her life are also invited to join us at 2:00pm, Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at White-Reynolds Funeral Chapel in Twin Falls, ID on 2466 Addison Ave. E., to celebrate Helen’s life and share our love for her. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Park.

Our deepest sympathies and love for the Blakeslee family.
Many memories of your mom and growing up in our little Gooding town. I was probably the only one that didn’t get a knitting lesson, but my sister Kristie was taught well, and still knits.
We love you Jenny. This was a beautiful tribute to your mother.
May you all rest peacefully knowing she is in a beautiful place. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

My Grandma and I didn't always see eye to eye and we didn't have the closest relationship but something about Grandma Helen that I loved was she always made you feel comfortable in your own skin. She had an amazing heart and was truly an amazing women. She had three great kids, loved each of them and had two great loves in her life. I'll miss her spunk, her donuts and her smile. Though we don't have a ton of memories - the ones we do have will never be forgotten. Rest well Grandma - I will see you again someday. Love you.

You could never leave her house hungry - ever! Best part of the eulogy. Eating strawberries dipped in sugar will always be a fond memory. I'm having a wave of sadness today. Watching this from afar is heartbreaking. I'll miss you Grandma Helen and I'm sorry we weren't closer.
