January 21, 1963 - June 26, 2019
On June 26, Mona Helmstetter left her earthly residence for her heavenly one. She did so peacefully surrounded by her family. She was preceded by her mother, Irma Helmstetter and her father, Charles Helmstetter.
She was and is loved by her four children: Jennifer Flagge, Jonathan Helmstetter, Jessica Townsend, and Jerrica Scott, four siblings: Clyde Helmstetter, Sheryl Barbarin, Louise Helmstetter, and Dewayne Helmstetter and fifteen grandchildren who remember and cherish the involved and caring nature of their mom, sister, and grandmother. She was and will continue to be a light in the darkness for all those who came into and through her life. She, in many ways, was the family glue, checking on everyone wherever they were and loving them as they were.
From countless trips to the pool to dance tips to an ever ready listening ear during those tough angsty teen years (for both the teen and the suffering parent). Mona touched so many lives by being the church in loving, forgiving, and always making time to lend a helping hand, words of encouragement, sharing a laugh, or a shoulder to cry on. While we miss her smile, laughter, and that unmistakable White Diamonds she has always loved, we know she is never gone from us. She has left a mark on our lives in the shape of love and we take comfort in knowing one day we can and will be reunited with her through the saving grace of Christ her and our redeemer.
A memorial service will be held at her home church in Augusta GA celebrating a life well lived and this woman we love. The service is to be held at Whole Life Ministries 2621 Washington Road, Augusta Georgia 30904 on July 8, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

To the family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I know her absence will be greatly felt and no words will ease that but time will help you find comfort in knowing that she is at peace and in a better place than us all. I will cherish my memories of her, she was a beautiful person and the best Aunt when I was a child. We were all very blessed to have her here. I love you all and hope you are doing well ??Dahlila Rijo - July 4 at 12:37 PM
