Doris Bebe Hellings

(1923 - 2014)

Bebe was born and bred in Riverside. Through her years she stayed limber and witty. Well into her 80’s you might find her on her roof shoveling snow or showing off that she could put her legs behind her head; “You’ve got to keep those things moving” she would say. Bebe was devoted to her daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Quiet times found her watching some old movies and tapping her feet to the sounds of Sinatra.

A young Bebe would meet a war hero, the late William. They called him Bounty. Their marriage was blessed by a daughter, Kathryn (Lori) Fabritiis; grandchildren, Thomas, Robert (Heather) and Edward (Christina); and 4 great grandchildren, Nicholas, Jackson, Marybella and Luke. She is also survived by her brother, Robert (Joan) Hinkle.
