Obituary of Helene Malone
One of Helene’s favorite country star sings, “Some beach, somewhere, there’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair. Palm trees are growing and warm breezes are blowing, I picture myself right there, on some beach, somewhere.” This song describes Helene’s perfect day. During the summer, you could find her with her toes in the sand and a book in her hand on the beach of Ship Bottom, NJ. When it wasn’t summer, you could find Helene embracing every holiday with decorations in every nook and cranny of her home. However, her kids waited for Christmas when Helene would bake batches and batches of her treasured Christmas cookies. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
