Helen was a lovely, poised woman who loved nothing more than to cook and take care of her home and family. She expressed her love through her cooking, reflected in the enormous and elegant meals she made. She would share her recipes down to the very last detail. And, she always made you feel welcome in her home. She was the kind of hostess that gave meaning to the word gracious. She grew up in Detroit in the good old days when going to the movies, riding the trolly and shopping at Hudson’s on Woodward were the vogue. She lived a simple life and loved her life. She was always coiffed and dressed, even in her house. She was a great listener and always had the best advise and words of wisdom, though never pushed her opinion.
Her children, grandchildren & great-grand children were her source of happiness and of course chocolate! Yes, it is true that she loved chocolate, in almost any form, but she also loved to read and share what she learned with those around her - especially if she thought the information would be useful. She was a very modest, intelligent and private woman who continued to take care of her family throughout her entire life. Whether you called her Mom, Grandma, Grammy, Aunt Helen or Mrs. Saieg she will be missed more than words can express.
With All of Gods Blessings....
