Mary Helen Kleinhelter

January 31, 1929May 20, 2020

Mary Helen Kleinhelter, Indianapolis, Indiana passed away on Wednesday May 20, 2020. Mary was born January 31, 1929 in Owensboro, Kentucky to the late Jeanette (Hayden) Moore and Marvin K. Moore. She is also preceded in death by her husband, James "Jim" Kleinhelter; 6 sisters; and a brother. She was an active member at the American Legion Post 391 in Fortville for many years. Helen was an accomplished artist and enjoyed the works of Thomas Kincaid and Bob Ross. She enjoyed playing organ, but couldn't read music. She played by ear. Helen was a great cook and loved cooking for her boy and was a first class caregiver. She would make the rounds on Saturdays to check in on and care for her family. She never admitted her age past 29, and when it was clearly silly to claim to be 29, she just wouldn't tell. She would prefer you don't do the math, just remember she led a full and loving life in her 29ish years.

Mary is survived by her daughter, Teresa Tully (Shawn); son, James "Jim" Burt; 2 grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren.

Visitation for Mary will be held Monday, June 8, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Little & Sons Funeral Home, 1301 Main St, Beech Grove, Indiana. Her Funeral Service will be Monday, June 8, 2020 at 12:00 PM, 1301 Main St, Beech Grove, Indiana with burial to follow at Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Indianapolis, Indiana. Facial coverings are required, social distancing, and a 25 person at any given time capacity will be observed. The service will be live streamed on the Facebook page of Little & Sons - Beech Grove and on her page at www.littleandsonsbeechgrove.com.

Contributions in Mary's memory may be made to American Legion Post 391, 207 S Merrill St, Fortville, Indiana 46040; and Alzheimer's Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Fl. 17, Chicago, Illinois 60601, www.alz.org.
