Judith Ann Helm

May 3, 1937 — May 23, 2023

Our mom, Judy, was reunited with our dad, her brother, and her parents in Heaven, and most of all, she met her Jesus.

Judy was an avid sewer, reader and liked to socialize. The vast amount of children Judy nurtured in her heart and care over the years extends to those she fostered, babysat, held at birth and led at church. To her last breath she held them all closely to her heart. She was strongly devoted to her church family at Bethel Baptist/RiverValley where she was a member for 71 years.

Judy married Arthur Helm on March 13, 1954, the couple were blessed with 7 children: Rick (Dawn), Laura (Norman) Goodacre; Linda (Phillip) Jensen, Amy (Andrew) Wojtowski; Lance, Cory (Michelle), and Angel.


Their family grew as grandbabies came along: Michelle (Aaron) Brechlin; Nic (Kim) Goodacre; Joshua (Jenny) Helm; Tammi (Ryan) Wilbur; Melissa Jensen; Scott (Candice) Goodacre; Ted Jensen; Kylie and Dominic Helm; PJ, Isaiah, Alaina, and Nathanael Wojtowski; and Kaitlyn Helm, who was welcomed into her heavenly home at birth.


Judy also has 12 great grandchildren: Andrew, Elizabeth, James, Jakaya, Elliot, Eva, Paige, Zak, Khaleesi, Kimmy, Carson and Corbin


In addition to her parents, Judy was preceded in death by her

husband, Arthur; granddaughter, Kaitlyn Helm; and brother, Larry Colligan. She is survived by her sister Joy Bennett.


A service for Judy will be held at RiverValley Church (1331 High Ave) on Thursday, June 1, 2023, at 12PM. A time of visitation will be held from 10AM until the time of service.


The family would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Aurora ER, ICU, 2nd floor staff, and Advocate Aurora hospice for the care they gave Judy.


Exodus 23:20 See I am sending an angel ahead of you to guide you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.
