Helen Louise Pinkham of 91 years, lifelong resident of Exeter, CA passed away under Hospice Care in Clovis, CA on August 6, 2020. She was born on October 11, 1928 to Robert C. Walter and Madge (McNees) Walter. She is preceded in death by her husband Donald Pinkham. She is survived by her three children Chuck, Janet and Marilyn and three grandchildren Stephen, Veronica and Thomas.
As a graduate of San Jose State University and California Arts and Crafts, her interests and hobbies included AAUW, Tulare County Art League, Exeter Women’s Club and Tulare County Symphony League. Helen was known for her love of her family, home, interior decorating, and gardening. Besides entertaining friends playing bridge in the afternoon while enjoying cocktails, Helen would be known to play the piano and reminisce over fond memories of travel to Europe with Don. Going out to dinner was another favorite. She wept at the loss of her favorite restaurant Estrada’s when it closed.
A memorial service held graveside at Exeter Cemetery is planned for Helen later this year. Please contact Smith’s Family Chapel at 559-592-9119, www.smithfamilychapel.com for more information.
