Medina, Ohio | Age 93

Loving Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother


Helen L. Chavalia (nee Colonius), 93 of Medina, Ohio passed away on Thursday, July 16, 2020.

She was born in Cleveland, Ohio and lived most of her life in Parma, Ohio. She is preceded in death by husband Chester Kaput and husband Claude Chavalia, sisters Cecelia Colley (Ed) and Mary Rini (Chuck), brothers Edward (Marion) and Jerry (Marion), and great grandson Jude Bissell.

Helen was a Sunday school teacher and volunteer at Parma Hospital and Medina Hospital. She worked as a Library Media Specialist in the Parma School system for 23 years and at the Curiosity Shoppe at Parmatown Mall. She was a member of Medina United Methodist Church and a longtime member of Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in Parma. She was a true follower of God and completed a discipleship study along with many other bible study courses. She was always willing to help others and was a true servant. She enjoyed reading, watching old movies, gardening and had a green thumb. Most of all, she enjoyed time with family, friends, and especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Helen was strong, extremely independent, generous, kind, and especially funny, providing us with much laughter. She always made the best of what life threw at her and found the best in people.

She is survived by her daughters, Karen Estok (Rick), Kimberly Berg (Craig), Linda Skupski (Ken), 9 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Medina United Methodist Church or The Celiac Foundation
