Obituary of Helen Elizabeth Tuthill
Helen Elizabeth Tuthill, age 59, passed away December 10, 2020 after a 2 ½ year fight against stage 4, metastatic breast cancer. She passed peacefully at home with her mother and stepfather, Carole and Charles Smith by her side, and was under excellent hospice care. Helen is survived by her sister Holly Dufresne, step-brother Chuck Smith, step-sister Shauna Smith, her nephews Michael Dufresne (wife Xiaowa Nie), and Jonathan Dufresne (partner Alexandra Blunt), her niece Laura Dufresne, grand-nephews Christopher Sonnier and Maxfield Jones, and all her Lacey and Bach cousins and families. Helen was a graduate of Baylor University in Waco, Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism/English. She worked as a reporter for several Texas newspapers and was very creative in writing, art and literature. Helen had an amazing heart for those struggling in the world. Her prayers and contributions over the years were too many to note, as she always thought of others first, praying daily for them all. She was a member of Redeemer Church, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. A private family viewing and interment will be held at a later date.
