For someone who wanted everyone “to just be happy”, we couldn’t be any sadder to announce that Helene Fabian passed away with her loving husband of 60 years, Bill, by her side on July 27, 2022. Helene (Stoltz) Fabian was born in Hartford on August 13, 1939, to Albert “Smiley” and Lillian Stoltz. Helene was the proud mother of her four children Ronda (Jay) Guberman, David (Wendy) Fabian, Brad (Nancy) Fabian, and Amy (David) Roy and Bubbie to her eight grandchildren, Alyssa (pre-deceased), Zak, Tyler, Allie, Lily, Mason, Ricky, and Gianna. A graduate of Weaver High School, she attended Hillyer College, where she met the love of her life, Bill. Helene retired after 14 years as a Military Payroll Officer for the State of Connecticut.
She was an avid Mah Jong player, loved hosting holiday dinners, travel, UConn Women’s basketball, trips to the casino, canasta, and most importantly spending time with her family. Helene’s slow pace allowed her to live life to the fullest.
She leaves her brother, Melvin “Chubby” Stoltz, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was a lefty by hand, but lived her life right.
Donations can be made in Helene’s memory to St. Judes Children’s Hospital. 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
Funeral services will be today at 1:30PM in the chapel of the Weinstein Mortuary, 640 Farmington Avenue, Hartford, with burial in Congregation B’nai Shalom Cemetery, Wethersfield. A memorial period will be observed at her home through Sunday evening.
