Helen Marie Logins

October 9, 1926 - April 26, 2022 

Helen, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend to many passed in her sleep on April 26, 2022. She was born in Scott, Arkansas and learned the many skills needed on a farm. She loved to read and especially enjoyed home crafts.  Knitting was her favorite. She didn’t watch television without the clicking of the knitting needles. She didn’t look at the knitting, her fingers knew what to do. Her first job was making bullets for the war effort.  She married, moved to California and had two sons. The marriage didn’t survive, but the family did. She worked as a bookkeeper for a number of businesses.  One of the first was a typewriter ribbon manufacturer (if you know what a typewriter is).  She married again which added two additional sons.  Helen lived in Arkansas, California, Oklahoma and again in California. She always loved Huntington Beach.  She is survived by her son, David Neal, daughter-in law, Debbie Neal, sister, Barbara McDonald Barrier, daughter-in-law, Karen Logins, grandchildren, Salvador Neal, Preston Neal, Christopher Neal, Stephanie Wheeler, Michael Logins, Shannon Plimmer, Cindy Kumar, and Kathleen Hensley, and many great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her husband Arthur Logins, father John D. McDonald and her mother Mandie McDonald, brothers Joseph McDonald, Samuel McDonald, Roy McDonald, Arthur McDonald, James McDonald, sons, Arthur Logins Jr., Steven Logins, and Arvis Neal.


I love you so much Grandma. You will truly be missed.

My daughters and I will miss her dearly! Her grandson Michael Logins, my daughters Noah and Carlee and I always loved to visit her in Huntington Beach during their Easter Break. She treated us like family! I love her so much! She was a very special lady! May she rest in peace❤🙏🏽

Helen's love for life and her family and her wonderful sense of humor, helped me grow into the person I am today. Only she could, with her infinite patience, teach me to knit.

She was a light in my life, she always treated me with love and respect, but most important she showed her unconditional love for my daughter, her grandaughter, Stephanie Wheeler.
