Vaida Jones Helland Dies at 93; Family Moved to La Mesa in 1938

She was active in PTA, Presbyterian Church, Kiwaniannes, thrift shop and other service groups.

Vaida Jones Helland—whose family moved to La Mesa in 1938 and later was active in PTA and local Kiwanis—died March 19, according to a U-T San Diego obituary.

She was 93.

“Returning to La Mesa after [World War II, she and her husband], started a business and raised their family next door to Vaida’s parents. Although Vaida worked at home, she was very active as a member and often a leader in the PTA, the Presbyterian Church, the Kiwaniannes, the thrift shop, the church choir and other service groups,” the obituary said.

A memorial is set for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 24, at Belmont Village, 13075 Evening Creek Dr., San Diego.
