She was born on December 10, 1931 to Clarence and Mary Newton Hoogendoorn in Ponca City, Oklahoma. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic School graduating class valedictorian in 1950. She was united in marriage to Lew Eddie Bloxsom on November 27, 1953 in St. Mary’s Catholic Church. They had been happily married for 49 years before his passing on August 1, 2003.

Helen is survived by her daughter, Sherri Lynn Tapp and husband, Mike of Ponca City, one son, Randy Lee Bloxsom of Conway Springs, Kansas, and daughter, Robbi Ann Webb of Ponca City; her beloved grandchildren, Tara Cartwright and husband, Heath of Ponca City, Scott Ferguson and wife Crystal of Ponca City, Cory Bloxsom and wife Bessie of Waggoner, Brandi Brave and husband Mike of Hulbert, Christopher Bloxsom and wife Cassandra of Ponca City, Jody Tapp and wife Brandie of Ponca City, Kristal Tapp of Ponca City, James Tapp and wife Kristen of Edmond, Jesse Webb and wife Jeane of Tulsa and Kamber Matthews and husband Chris of Conway Springs, Kansas. She was blessed with 28 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandson with another on the way. She was loved by numerous nieces and nephews and extended family and loved ones. In remembering her passions, we can say these for sure. She loved fashion. She was always beautifully and colorfully dressed whatever the occasion and she really had fun shopping for clothes and shoes. She was also instrumental in forming the first Alzheimer’s Support Group and worked for years helping others that had a loved one with Alzheimer’s.

Our Meme, as she was lovingly known by her family will be remembered and cherished for her loving and joyful spirit. To be known by her was to be loved by her genuinely and unconditionally. Meme’s life was truly her altar to God. She had lived life joyfully, prayerfully, and with a tremendous amount of gratitude. She trusted him with her whole heart for herself, her family and all those she loved. She served her church faithfully her entire life.

Meme was always ready for an adventure when there was fun to be had and memories to be made. She loved sharing those memories with others. She loved telling stories about each of her children and grandchildren and would light up always when talking about the newest little member born into the family. Meme loved to read, listen to music and she loved family gatherings. She enjoyed playing her piano and playing card games with her grandchildren, family, and friends.

However, the love of her life was her husband, Lew. We will all miss you so much Meme until we see you again but we know Papa is happy to have his “Angel” back now. Thank you so much for the legacy of love you have both left for us all.

She was preceded in death by her husband Lew Eddie Bloxsom, her parents, brother, Clarence “Sonny” Hoogendoorn, and sister Nadine Jackson and son-in-law Tom Webb.
