Cami Jo Garland, age 63, of Cape Fair, Missouri, passed away January 3, 2023, in Cassville, Missouri. She entered this life March 19, 1959, in Boise, Idaho, the daughter of Asa and Donna (Gentry) Helm.

Known as a truth teller, Cami Jo would tell you like it was. She was a storyteller who could keep your attention because of her vivid imagination and story skills. Cami Jo was known as the "fun" mother and grandmother who provided a welcoming presence for the kids in her neighborhood. She was caring and compassionate while being tough and adventurous. At one time she told her son, “Stay humble, laugh, and love.” Her advice was top notch and on point. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Cami Jo is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Steve Helm; sister, Caryn Ocamb; brother-in-law, Gary Garland; and son-in-law, Rob Bayer.

Cami Jo is survived by her two daughters: Carissa Bayer of Branson, Missouri, and Chelsee (Zachary) Gates of Madras, Oregon; son, Joseph Garland of Springfield, Missouri; seven grandchildren: Asa, Alec, Autumn, Cameron, Conner, Cooper, and Caleb; one great-grandchild, Atlas; brother, Scott (Jami) Helm of Cape Fair, Missouri; sister-in-law, Jean Helm of Berryville, Arkansas; and former husband, David Garland of Springfield, Missouri.

A memorial service will be planned for a later time. Arrangements and Cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit
