Helen Colbert, 87, of Tallmadge passed October 15, 2021. She was born on June 8, 1934 in Akron.
She will be best remembered for her unconditional love and for the fabulous cook/baker she was. Helen knew no strangers. She would talk to everyone and they all loved her. She had a heart of gold. Helen loved going to the casinos and playing the lottery. (She’d always say that she was going to win big and pay off everyone’s debt!) Helen had a way of making everyone’s life better. She loved family and friends like no other. Helen would cook/bake for everyone. A few of the favorites would be her potato salad, pies, and peanut butter fudge! Helen loved spending time with her family.
