Graveside Funeral Services for Hellon Leveridge, 85, of Wayne will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, February 13, 2020 at Hillside Cemetery in Purcell. Services will be under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mrs. Leveridge passed away Saturday, February 8, 2020.
Mary Hellon Shobert was born February 3, 1935 in Rosedale, Okla., the youngest of four children born to Jesse Marion Shobert and Cora Elizabeth (Fox) Shobert.
She was raised in Rosedale and attended school there, graduating in 1952. Hellon married young, to Ruel Wayne Leveridge, and to this union, three children, daughter, Andrea, and sons, Reuel and Kenneth, were born.
Hellon worked hard throughout the years, doing whatever was necessary to help care for and provide for her family. She worked in the family demolition business, for the U.S. Postal Service, and all the while, found time to be a mother and grandmother. She was a substitute teacher and drove the school bus for Wayne Public Schools.
Hellon devoted a great deal of her time in the caring of others, and she delivered Meals on Wheels to those in need for many years. When she wasn’t working, you could find her sitting on her porch, and she loved watching the Canadian Geese on her pond.
She was an excellent cook, and will be forever remembered for her fried chicken and yeast rolls, and her chili con carne. She was a loving mother and grandmother; strong and steadfast in her faith, and a longtime member of the Wayne United Methodist Church. She will be dearly missed!
She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Cora Shobert; sister, Eileen Roberts and two brothers, Kenneth Shobert and Dewey Eugene “Gene” Shobert.
Hellon is survived by her daughter, Andrea Parks of Lusby, Md.; her boys, Reuel Leveridge of Wayne and Kenneth Leveridge of Purcell and her grandchildren, Cody Leveridge of Purcell, T.G. Parks of Lusby, and Reuelene and Reuben Leveridge, both of Wayne, and a host of other family and friends.
