Helen Short
Dec. 23, 1929 - July 2, 2014
Resident of Castro Valley
Helen LaVerne Short passed away quietly in her home on July, 2, 2014. She touched many lives with her nurturing kindness.
Helen was born in Missouri. She married George Roger Short when she was 17 years old. They had their daughter Nancy in 1949. They moved to California in 1953. Their second daughter Christie was born in 1959. Helen and George were married for 62 years. They were Castro Valley residents for over 50 years. George preceded Helen in passing in 2009.
Helen enjoyed baking, hosting dinner parties, going on trips, spending time at their country property, socializing with her many friends, playing cards, going to yard sales, collecting vintage dishes and spending time with her family. She loved her church and she mostly loved the weekly luncheons.
Helen is survived by her daughters Nancy Short Carter, Christie Short Giambruno, son in law Scott Giambruno and grandchildren Denise Rodriguez, Amy Vieytes, Alexander Giambruno, Sarah Giambruno and 3 great grandsons, Mitchell and Marcus Vieytes and Logan Rodriguez.
We will all miss her vivacious personality and that twinkle in her eye. Helen requested in lieu of flowers that donations be made to Cross Streets, a homeless outreach program sponsored by The Neighborhood Church of Castro Valley.
A memorial is Monday, July 14, 2014 @ 1:00 P.M. Chapel of the Chimes Hayward
