"Resting where no shadows fall In peaceful sleep awaiting us all God will link the broken chain When one by one we meet again…"

Helen Nira Klein had her daughter by her side when she passed away on May 3rd, 2018, of complications from mouth cancer. Helen was a pure and innocent soul who was loved by everyone that met her. She was an amazing watercolorist and was surrounded by many of her beautiful creations. She also loved dancing and when she heard the piano playing you couldn’t keep her still. She may not be here anymore but she’s sure to be dancing her way through heaven while painting her masterpiece. She is proceeded in death by her husband, George W. Klein, and survived by her daughter, Karen Maxwell, her 2 sons, Daniel and Michael Klein. Her grandchildren Megan Hood, Amber Allen, Angela Guyll, Nick and Justin Klein. Great grandchildren; Kaedyn, Kyah & Korynn White, Colten & Hanna Hood, Zoe & Haley Guyll and Leo Klein.

I will always remember how much she loved art and creating watercolors. My favorite memories of her are of chatting about watercolor painting techniques and talking about painting landscapes and flowers. She also encouraged me in my own artistic endeavors. I will always appreciate that. I remember how much she loved roses and was so very proud of her beautiful little rose garden years ago. She always seemed to have an interestimg story to tell or something clever and sassy to say. Rest in Peace Grandma Helen. Love, Angela

It must have been 1975 when I first met Helen, Karen and I had known each other in junior high school, but in our 1st year at Foster high School we became the best of friends and the sisters of the heart. I remember Helen as a beautiful woman and a very innocent soul. She was quiet and we didn't really talk much. Many years later in 2008 I met up with Helen again and she was just as beautiful, her eyes lit up with pleasure when she saw me. She had remembered me after all those years, my heart was full, especially since by that time she was showing signs of dementia. But what I remember most was how her eyes lit up whenever she saw her daughter, Karen. Karen was Helen's best friend and the light of her life. Rest in peace beautiful lady.
