Helen Carr-Budde

In Loving Memory

Helen Carr-Budde, a beacon of love, strength, and kindness, departed from this world on May 27th, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of cherished memories and a profound impact. She was born on May 5th, 1970, to Shannon Whitten and Warren Carr and was the youngest of seven children. She was a long time employee of the State of Washington, a graduate of South Puget Sound Community College, and amateur photographer.

Helen was a pillar of strength and kindness, providing compassion and a kind smile to all with whom she interacted. Her generous heart, gentle words, and selfless deeds left an indelible mark on everyone fortunate enough to cross her path. She cherished life's simple pleasures, finding joy in hosting family gatherings and holidays, watching movies, road trips to the ocean, camping, singing, crafting, and the love of her pets. Helen's legacy of love, kindness, and selflessness will forever inspire us. May her soul rest in eternal peace, surrounded by the love she so generously gave during her time with us.

Helen was preceded in death by her father, Warren Carr, and her sister, Anita Wilson. She is survived by her mother, Shannon Whitten; her siblings, Casey Carr, Butch Carr, Nancy Free, Shannon Chapman, and Elizabeth Carr; her children, Cory Budde, Heather Minor, and Elizabeth Budde; her five grandchildren; her aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins; as well as her beloved dog JoJo.

A celebration of Helen's life will be held on Sunday July 14th, 2024 at the Skookum Grange Hall at 3:00 p.m., where family and friends will gather to honor her memory, share stories, and find solace in each other's presence.
