Larsen, Helena McGee
The Guest Book is expired.
Helena (McGee) Larsen passed away peacefully on Saturday July 12th, surrounded by her loving family. She was 71 years old.
Helena was the daughter of the late Edward and Margaret (Commins) McGee of Danbury. A lifelong New Fairfield and Danbury resident, Helena was a graduate of St. Peter School and Danbury High School, class of 1960. She worked for many years at the Dolan Corporation in Bethel before eventually discovering her passion for real estate. Helena was well known and respected as a local real estate agent in New Fairfield for over 25 years.
She was the devoted wife of the late Christian David Larsen, a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Helena will be remembered for her generosity, thoughtfulness, warm heart, sharp wit, and humble, helpful spirit. She enjoyed spending time with her family more than anything, and cherished every moment with her children and grandchildren - who always put a smile on her face. A fun-loving soul, Helena's favorite vegetable was chocolate, and her favorite color was pink. As a tribute to Helena's legacy, friends and family are encouraged to wear pink to her funeral service.
Helena's spirit is carried on by her children, C. Eric and Malissa Larsen of Chapel Hill, NC, Lauren and Steven Greenberg of Danbury, CT, and Elizabeth and Michael Kim of Wellesley, MA, along with her cherished grandchildren, Christian and Gavin Larsen, August and Maya Kim, and grand dogs, Theo and Jack Greenberg. In addition to her children and grandchildren, Helena was a devoted sister and is survived by siblings Charles Vincent McGee, Loretta Hissong and her husband Larry, Jerome McGee, Patricia McGee, and Edward McGee and his wife Valerie. She was predeceased by her brothers, Edward Sr., William, Paul, James, and by sisters, Kathleen Baird and Mary Slaving.
The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support. Helena will be sorely missed by her family and a host of loving friends.
