Obituary for Helen Pszczolkowski-Webster

Helen (nee Pszczolkowski) Webster, age 82 of Brighton, formerly of Novi, passed away on Wednesday, January 20, 2010.
Our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and friend, Helen.

We were the best of friends. We shopped together, laughed together, ate together, and traveled together. We knew that on a moment's notice we could get Helen to do anything with us. No movie was too silly, too girly, too scary - if we asked, Helen would go with us. If we needed to buy something - Helen would help us shop. If we mentioned we didn't have time to do something, Helen would offer to do it for us. And, when it came to shopping, no one could hold a candle to Helen's Christmas shopping. She always wanted to get everyone what they wanted most and would snap up the wish lists items before the rest of us even started shopping. We could talk for hours, and Helen was always interested in what we had to say. Interested and supportive and loving. We always knew who's side she'd take when we needed to blow off steam.
It's easy to feel like you are right and smart and good when you have a friend like Helen.
At 82 Helen could, and did, pass for a woman in her 50s or 60s. She had a sense of style and grace that we will always admire. She took swim exercise classes twice a week, road an exercise bike, and climbed those mini Mount Everest stairs in her condo many times a day. She traveled to Las Vegas by herself or with her children. She was devoted to her Church --participating in the Alter Guild and was a devote member of the Daughters of the King. She was an example to all of us of a life well lived.
Helen was very generous--she was exceeding generous, but also had a generosity of spirit. She thought of other people first and her loved ones above all others. She never stopped worrying about any of us. She wanted to protect us all, and with what we came to take as endearments, were her reminders to ...lock our doors.. don't get in an accident...don't run out of gas....don't work too hard... And, let's not forget the baby Venus fly trap that had to be kept out of reach of her grandchildren for fear that it could bite their fingers.
Helen and Jim adored their children and grandchildren and taking them to the state fair, the movies, on road trips or sleepovers was one of their favorite pastimes. Last February Helen took her children to Punta Cana. We had a dream trip - she gave us yet another memory that we will cherish forever. Helen spoke with us often about how blessed we felt our lives were. Our lives have been very blessed by having Helen, who we loved dearly and who we know loved us too. We will forever miss her, but heaven has an angel that will be watching over us and that will protect us and always keep us dear.
Both our parents were proud of all our achievements but we always felt that Mom was especially so. And that pride extended to her daughter-in-law and sons-in-laws and carried over to her grandchildren and even her great-grandchildren. She supported all of us in everything we did. We know that we told her, but we only hope that we told her enough, how especially proud we were of her and how much we loved her. Even though we will miss her every single day, I believe she is with our Dad and they are both in heaven with God.

Preceded in death by her beloved husband, James (d. 2008).

Survived by her son, Robert (Diane) Webster of South Lyon; daughters, Kathleen (Gary) Baker of Troy, Patricia (Gary) Livy of Tennessee; 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; brother, Chester Pszczolkowski. Also many loving extended family members and dear friends.
