To all of dear Helen's family...
I was so deeply saddened to learn of her passing. What a beautiful lady she was. I treasured all the times when I was able to be with her... at baking for the Festivals, when visiting with her at Coffee Hours, and any other time when I was blessed to be with her. I will remember her always with much love.
I send you my deepest sympathy and prayers for your comfort as she will live always in so many precious memories.

Helen is remembered in a special way. She lived down the street from us. Helen always sent us her wonderful Greek cookies at Christmas time. We will miss her friendly wave from her front door as we drove down the street. Helen was there if you needed help with anything, She will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. I remember working along side her when we had the quiltathon and also during our festival. I will miss her greetings in the morning when we return to having church services at the Cathedral.
May her memory be eternal !

I can remember walking into their home and Miss Helen would be baking her delicious Greek cookies and I wanted to eat them all. I would go home with samples of course. She was fun to be around. She will be missed.

So sad to learn of Helen’s passing. So many memories of baking for our Festivals, learning from her cooking and baking skills, and her “no nonsense, tell it like it is” approach to life and living. I will miss her.
Our deepest sympathy to her family and may she Rest In Peace and her Memory be Eternal.

Your mom was a very special lady to me. When I went to Greek School many years ago, she came and taught us to Greek Dance. Through the years we always greeted each other at church and I was very fortunate to see her back in February at the coffee hour and chat with her. May her memory be eternal. My deepest condolences to the entire family.
