Helen Regina Ashby went home to be with the Lord and her mommy and daddy on Friday, February 18, 2022 at the age of 69.  Helen was born on October 16, 1952 to the late Joseph Ashby and Nancy Eula Mowdy Ashby in Kingsport, TN. 

Helen was blessed with a large and loving family.  She was a devoted mommy to her baby dolls and had a passion for art.  Her favorite things included coloring, creating jewelry, and spending time with her family.  She had a love for vacations; and taking a trip to her favorite destination, Cosby, always brought a smile to her face.  She would always be the first in the car with her babies in tow.  She was an animal lover, and loved puppy cuddles.  Helen was the sweetest girl you could ever meet.
