Mrs. Frances Helmuth Denmark, age 92, went to be with her Lord on Thursday, December 24, 2020 at her home in Nevils, Georgia under the care of Regency SouthernCare Hospice. Born September 17, 1928 in Bulloch County to Paul and Della Hodges Helmuth, Mrs. Denmark lived most of her life in Savannah before returning to Bulloch county during her later years.
She loved her family, first and most but loved people in general. She was a homemaker that enjoyed her work. Frances liked working in her garden--nothing made her happier than to take the fruits of her labor and cook for the people she appreciated and those that appreciated her. When she wanted to relax, she would enjoy an afternoon fishing, but that could also lead to a family fish fry.
Frances is preceded in death by her husband and love of her life for 63 years, James E. Denmark; her sons, Jimmy and Ralph Steven Denmark and nine brothers and sisters.
She is survived by her sons, David Lee Denmark of Wilmington Island, Kenneth Michael Denmark (Carol) of Savannah, Daniel Edward Denmark (Maria) of Faulkville and Joseph Allan Denmark (Jeannie) of Ellabell; sister, Helen Cannon of Sandersville, daughter-in-law, Barbara Denmark; eight grandchildren; nine great grandchildren and a very special caregiver for the last few years, Charlotte Lawson.
Funeral services will be Wednesday, December 30 at 11:00 AM in the Chapel at Deal Funeral Directors, Statesboro, Georgia with Pastor Bobby Walthour, Jr., Chaplain Regency SouthernCare Hospice, officiating. Interment will follow at Deloach Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. Visitation with the family will be Tuesday, December 29 from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM at Deal Funeral Directors.
