Helene P. Cheek, age 89, passed away on April 13, 2018. Born on April 3, 1929 in Alliance, NC, she was the daughter of the late John Albert Paul and Rena West Paul.

Helene attended business school and worked as a court stenographer in Raleigh, NC. She was an accomplished seamstress, enjoyed decorating her home, and loved her garden and flowers. Most of all, she loved being a homemaker and caring for her family.

She was a devoted sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. We remember her for her sweetness of spirit and her never ending love for her family, friends, and neighbors. She always remembered their kindness and care for her.

She was married for 65 years to Irving M. Cheek, Jr., who predeceased her. Her husband was her cherished friend and they were devoted to each other.

She is survived by her sister, Mary Newton (Paul) of Monroe, NC, and her daughters, Virginia Irene Bondeson of Stevens Point, WI and Patricia Lorena Cheek of Greenville, SC. Also, her three grandsons, Dave Bondeson (Heather) of Stevens Point, WI, John Bondeson of Colombia Heights, MN, and Dan Bondeson of New Haven, CT, as well as her great-grandchildren Leila, Eden, Eben, and Elliet, and well-loved nieces and nephews. She was proud of them all.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, April 21st, at 11 am at the Vine United Methodist Church, 2101 Belvedere Avenue, Charlotte, NC. Visitation with the family will precede the service at 10 AM at the church.
