On August 11, 2013, Helen left us to join her beloved husband of 57 years, Raymond C. Podesta, her parents Al & Margaret Hauck, her sister Alvera Fisher, her brother Andrew Hauck and her niece Marjory Hazen. She leaves behind her two daughters, Peggy with husband Bennie Martin and Sharen with husband Tim Holway, her sister Sara V. Casey, sister-in-law Madelyn Hauck, nephew Al Casey and nieces Kathy Elders, Karol Casey and Susan Decker. Helen wanted to be remembered for the good times she shared with family and friends, delicious meals, lively card games, fun camping trips, ceramics, bicycling, and the kids and pets she loved. Until we meet again, Henna, we love you, times seven.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to Haven Hospice, 4200 NW 90 Blvd., Gainesville, FL 32606.
