Helen Marie Plemmons

October 24, 1937 — November 22, 2022

Oxford

Helen Marie Plemmons passed away peacefully at her residence in Oxford, Ohio on Tuesday November 22nd after an extended battle with Cancer.  

Helen (nee Olson) was born in Klamath Falls, Oregon in October of 1937 and was the daughter of Erik and Anna (nee Erickson) Olson newly immigrated from Sweden.  She spent her childhood and early adulthood in Oregon and California, graduating with both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Humboldt State University in Arcata, California.  She married her husband, Larry W. Plemmons (deceased) in January 1965 in Sacramento, California.

Helen pursued a lifelong career in teaching at the High School level in Sacramento, California, Greenville, South Carolina, Schenectady, New York, and most recently with the Talawanda School District in Oxford, Ohio where she retired in the early 1990’s.  She was very passionate about teaching and truly enjoyed challenging and seeing her students succeed.  She embraced bringing new techniques into her classroom and was one of the earliest adopters of computers in the classroom in the 1980’s.

Helen had many interests including photography and golf and was highly accomplished at both.  She was also an avid supporter of the arts including the Cincinnati Pops.

Helen is survived by her daughters Grace Plemmons-Reynolds and Lorraine Margaret.
