helencrumpobit

Helen Dutro Crump has died at age 99.

Helen was born on Jan. 16, 1914, in Spokane, Wash., to Roy and Susannah Dutro.

The family moved to Berkeley, Calif., where Helen later met her husband Fred Crump, who was attending law school. They married in 1941 and remained in San Francisco while Fred served in the Coast Guard during WWII.  

When the war ended in 1945 they moved with their infant son Peter to Lake County, where Fred’s grandfather had settled after the Civil War. Daughter Sally was born in 1947. Fred began his law practice which included serving as the district attorney, a position which was only part-time in those days.

Throughout her life Helen served on numerous charitable committees and as a volunteer for many nonprofit organizations from Red Cross to Eastern Star, to March of Dimes to Cub Scouts.

She was preceded in death by husband, Fred Crump; son, Peter; daughter, Sally; sister, Celene Davidson; and brothers, Harold “Dute” and Donald Dutro.  

She is survived by brother, Burt Dutro of Paso Robles; nieces, Helen Williams, Hallie Kelly, Suzanne Mason and Susan Clark; and nephew, Gary Dutro.

The family will hold a gathering at her home on Sunday, Feb. 24, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., to celebrate Helen’s life and invite any who wish to join them in remembering her.

Arrangements intrusted to Jones Mortuary FD311, Lakeport, Calif.
