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.
