Monica Helms

Monica Katheryne Edge Helms, 56, of Lincolnton, NC, peacefully went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, August 2, 2021, at her residence.

A Celebration of Monica’s life will be held at 11:00 AM Saturday, August 14, 2021, at Good Samaritans Funeral Home.

Monica was born on September 2, 1964, in Wilmington, NC, the daughter of the late Randy Edge, and Katherine (Kay) Edge Weaver. Monica enjoyed getaways to the beach and spending time with her many friends either in person, on POGO and on social media. She followed her grandmother Rachel’s love for Bingo and her father’s fondness of poetry.  Monica treasured time with her family. It was often heard that Monica said being a mother and grandmother were the greatest accomplishments of her life.  She will be lovingly remembered by all who were blessed to know her.

Left to cherish Monica’s memory is her loving daughter, Jessica Bumgarner (Jason), grandson, Jamie “Scooter” Bumgarner, her sister, Sharon McNeil (Ken), her nephew, Bryan Edge, great nephew, Atlas Edge, and her close friend, George Helms.

In addition to her parents, Monica was preceded in death and is now reunited with her grandparents and her beautiful granddaughter, Katheryne Leigh Ann Bumgarner.

The Family encourages you to wear purple on Saturday, August 14th, to honor Monica’s fight to stay Fibro Strong.

    Dear Sharon, Jessica, Jamie & family – I pray you will all find comfort in the days ahead knowing the Monica is resting at peace and pain free. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve this loss. I’m confident that my Aunt Rosa, cousin Randy and Kay, all have her wrapped in their arms today.

    So glad I read this. I’ll be sure to go shopping for a purple dress that Monica’s spirit will lead me to. I’ve known her for many years, since I was knee high to s grasshopper lol. And She was the most kind-hearted sweet lady that I’d ever had the privilege of meaning and being her friend. She was more family to me and my grandmother Doris than friends. And now forever will be thankful to her for talking me down with some personal issues I just hate I can’t give her a big hug and tell her goodbye in person and tell her how much I appreciate everything she did for me. I just hope she knows I love her and I know she’s with the good Lord my mom my pawpaw And all the rest that went before the sweet lady. My deepest move sincerelest condolences. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything and I do mean anything. Keeping you all in my thoughts prayers and sending you all my good positive vibes your way. Much love to you and all your family. 💜
