Helen Alice Saavedra

November 14,1938 - August 2, 2015 


On August 2, Helen Saavedra, 76, of Boulder Creek passed away unexpectedly in her home. She is survived by her lovely daughters — Carmen (Steven) Vera, Diana Saavedra and Valerie (Anthony) Saavedra-Do; her six grandchildren — Amanda, Rey, Danielle, Michael, Lauren, and Adam; and four great-grandchildren; her sisters — Sue Walters and Marie Barber; ex-husband-friend — Ray Saavedra and her beloved dog Charlie. 

Helen was known to many as “Grandma Helen.” She was a kind, gracious and loving woman who had a zest for life. She was a sage and true friend and lived her Christian values to the fullest. She spread joy wherever she went.

She volunteered at Valley Churches and was a Red Hatter.

Her family was her life and she was a tremendous Mom.

Helen’s legacy is as bright and beautiful as she was. A touching and beautiful family Celebration of Life was held at the Junction Park. 

You were a beloved member of our community, Grandma Helen, and we will miss you beyond words so rest in peace, dear friend.
