Helen Bingamon

March 4, 1921 — October 10, 2022

Helen Darlene Bingamon, age 101, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away October 10, 2022, at Silvercrest at Deer Creek, Overland Park, Kansas. Helen was born March 4, 1921, in Welda, Kansas, to Harry G. Bloom and Minnie (Carnes) Bloom.

Helen was the youngest of eleven children. She graduated in 1938 from Welda High School, Welda, Kansas. After high school, Helen was employed in Garnett until she moved to Wichita, Kansas, where she was the first female to walk on the assembly floor and begin her work as an aircraft riveter for Beechcraft during all four years of WWII.

Helen and William (Bill) Bingamon were married June 21, 1946, in Drumright, Oklahoma. They moved to Garnett in 1950, where they raised their daughter, Sherry. Helen drove a school bus during the 1960s to early 1970s, where she made a lot of friends with her riders.

She loved dogs and attending public auctions to buy antiques, researching antiques, and refinishing and selling antiques. Helen was an avid KU Men's Basketball fan. Jeff and Jennifer were the light of her life. They visited often and she was involved in their activities. Helen was a self-taught wizard of stock market trading, making a name for herself among nationwide stockbrokers.

Helen was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; three brothers; and seven sisters.

Helen is survived by her daughter, Sherry (Larry) Angell, Overland Park, Kansas; grandson, Jeffrey (Lisa) Benus, Maysville, Missouri; granddaughter, Jennifer (Dennis) Runyan, Garnett, Kansas; great-grandchildren, Kristin (Kollin) Black, Kyle (Emily) Cox, Jason Benus, Miranda (Adam) Gade, Hannah Draper, Haylee Draper; and seven great-great-grandchildren.
