I did not know her very well except through my daughter Jennifer and my grandchildren. As a boss lady I know she went above and beyond for all of her employees. She love to take care of all of the families at Christmas and other times and she was very generous and helpful in their times of need. I am very sorry for those closest to her, loss. My granddaughter Sunshine just told me shortly before her passing that she loved Helene, and she loved for her to read to her.

My Auntie Helenie was the best! I always wanted to be with her when I was a kid, she was so much fun!

She loved to shop! I believe she is responsible for my shoe addiction.

She took me to the airport for my first trip on an airplane. Made me feel safe when I was nervous.

She loved Jewish delicatessen‘s. She would take me to get my favorite black and white cookies, while she would get a bagel with chopped liver. I always told her that was yucky, but she loved it.

When I was a teenager I tried to run away and go live with her. Although she turned me in, probably didn’t want to have to raise me and Kellie... or maybe it’s because I had boys with me! LOL

Aunt Helene was fun spirited and very giving.

I’m going to miss her dearly, I’m happy that she’s in heaven with her mom and dad who she loves more than life itself.

Helene was the most thoughtful and generous person I’ve ever met. I’m blessed that she was my friend. She was funny, and always spoke her mind, but she was always thinking of others.

~Helene, I love you and I’m going to miss you! I hope you’ll keep on shining and watching over those you love, and let them feel your warmth and comfort when they’re missing you the most. Safe travels beautiful angel~

I have written and rewritten this a million times! I met Helene when I was 15, worked for her for 17 years! She was an amazing lady! She was a great listener, helped anyone any way she could. She had a huge heart! I loved her more than life. She was always there when someone needed her and she had a great love for animals! I miss not being able to pick up the phone and call her as she always had a way with words! I love you lady, rest easy until we meet again! You will never be forgotten!

Helene has been a huge part of my life for the last 12 years. She began as my employer, then became one of my closest friends, and in the end she was family. No matter what i was going through she was always there for me and my family. I never imagined how much i would miss all of her questions. Till we meet again boss lady. I 💘 you and will miss you dearly.
