Obituary

Helen Vashti Stein, died in Greenwood Village Colorado at Brookdale Assisted Living after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Helen was 79 years old and preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Barbara, and Rosie and her husband Al. She is survived by her daughter Patti Roman, son-in-law Steve Roman, grandson Zach Roman and grandson Jarrett Roman. Also, her sisters Reba and Peg and her brother Frank.

Helen was born in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. She attended Mooseheart Child City and School in Aurora, Illinois, with three of her sisters and one brother after their father died when she was two years old. Her mother stayed at home raising Helen's sister Peg who had polio. Helen attended Mooseheart from the age of 2 until she graduated from there at the age of 18. To this day she has many close friends from Mooseheart. She attended college for two years in Illinois where she later met and married Alan (Al) Stein. Al was in the army at the time and they spent time in army bases in Illinois and Georgia. After the service the settled down in Downers Grove Illinois where they adopted they're only child Patti. From Downers Grove, Al was transferred to Denver Colorado and that is where they wanted to remain.

Helen worked for Sears in Littleton, Colorado for 30 years and retired in 2002 allowing her to spend time with her only grandson, Zach. She was a huge Denver Bronco fan and loved spending Sunday's watching football. She was also an avid gardener and loved working in her yard. When she wasn't spending time with family or watching football you would often find her walking her dog and visiting with her neighbors.

Helen requested no funeral be held. A small family only gathering will be held in the mountains where her ashes will be scattered along with husband Al's.
