October 1, 1942 – July 14, 2020

Helen A. Bagh, age 77, passed away at her home in New Mexico on July 14, 2020 but her heart was always in Pahrump, Nevada where she lived for many years. She loved to make people laugh; she loved to dance and always filled the room with her smile. She was feisty, quick witted, and loved to share her adventurous life stories, which were sure to bring a smile and a laugh. Although her income was modest, her generosity and sincere concern for others was without limit.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Anwar (Andy) Bagh. She is survived by her children, Gloria Angelo and Jeffery Fuller; her grandchildren, Christina, Angel and Tawni; 6 great grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews, Helene, Noah and Adam. She crocheted all her life and blessed many people with a beautiful afghan which she called a “hug”. When you came to her home she was sure to offer a hot cup of Folgers or a cold Pepsi and was always up for a game of Yahtzee.

She will be deeply missed by family and friends but we know she soars with the angels, dancing through heaven, no longer having to burden sorrow, pain or tears.

Her motto in death as it was in life:

Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting “Holy shit … what a ride!!”
