Helen Joyce Viles
On Sunday, June 6, 2021, Helen Joyce Viles, loving wife and mother of two passed away suddenly but peacefully at the age of 95 in Sandy, Ore.
Helen was born April 15, 1926 in Turton, South Dakota to Maude and Oliver Goldthorpe. She was raised in Watertown, S.D. but also lived in Chicago, Kodiak Alaska and Portland, Ore., eventually settling in the Welches and Sandy, Ore. area.
On May 14, 1966, Helen married Cecil Viles in Gresham, Oregon and raised their daughter Sandy and son John, always with 100% unconditional love.
Helen and Cecil both loved warmer weather so in 1978 they became snowbirds and would winter in Las Vegas NV, Redding CA and Yuma AZ, always making special friends wherever they stayed.
Helen had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed many things, her granddaughter Kelci, thrift stores, traveling and anything sweet. Helen also enjoyed always looking sharp, it didn't matter if she was home alone or going out to dinner, she always looked like a million bucks from head to toe.
Helen was preceded in death by her husband Cecil; and her 4 sisters; and 1 brother. She is survived by her two children, Sandy and John; her granddaughter Kelci; and great- grandson Owen.
At this time no service is scheduled.
