Helen M. Zych (nee Molnar), a lifelong resident of Lorain, passed away on Friday, August 3, 2018 at The Wesleyan Village in Elyria following a lengthy illness. She was born on January 4,1928.

Mrs. Zych graduated from Lorain High School and attended St. Peter Church. She enjoyed being a homemaker and a mother, and was proud of her Hungarian culture. Helen was also a talented artist and the winner of several first-place ribbons at the Lorain County Fair.

It greatly saddens us to hear about Aunt Helen passing. Although we are unable to be in town this week, we have all of you in our thoughts and prayers. I hope you enjoy the DVDs my Mom (Irene) will be giving you to keep. It contains many wonderful memories of Aunt Helen and Uncle Bob (and many of you. Gary, Bobby, Donna, Sharon, and Jeff).

I will miss my aunt's laughter!! Whenever we visited Ohio we would go to see Aunt Helen and Uncle Bob. We would reminisce old times and they both would laugh so easily. We were lucky to get one of her winter paintings.
She would be pleased with this beautiful picture of her.
