A Tribute to Helen McKay

Local woman and beloved store manager of the Roseville and Folsom Jelly Belly stores, Helen McKay, died unexpectedly in her sleep a few weeks ago.  Many did not know the face behind our local Jelly Belly and its famous happy character.  She supported so many businesses and was always a joy to be with, always equipped with her smile.  Helen attended many local events, with Jelly Belly character in tow, and was a member of several of the local Chambers of Commerce.  Among many of successes was the atmosphere she created in the local stores, always keeping it light, happy, and honest. 

 No one will ever be able to fill her shoes and her hard work will not disappear as the stores will carry on.  Her career was her love and she will be greatly missed by all of those that knew her.

  1. Helen will be truly missed. She was always smiling, I don’t think I ever saw her have a bad day. She left us to quickly. I will never forget you Helen!

  2. Helen was just a great person. She was very caring and understanding. I had the pleasure to work with her for more than a year and she taught me so much. She really believed in me and my future career in Interior Design/art. I will forever miss her and I hope she’s in a better place right now. I miss you Helen!!

  3. Helen was a wonderful Manager and friend. I worked with her for about 2 years. She was always there to talk to and always cared about what was going on in each of her employees lives. I enjoyed working with her so much as an employee and an Assistant Manager. She truly loved her job and loved t see the smiles on childrens faces while holding their bags of candy. I will never work for anyone as wonderful as Helen. Going to the Roseville store will never be the same not seing Helen’s bright smile a wonderful laugh. I moved out of state and just found out about her passing and will miss her so much and wish that my little girl could have met her. I miss you Helen.
