Helen Marie Alfirevich Obituary
Helen Marie Alfirevich, age 50, late of Orlando, FL and formerly of Chicago's East Side. Beloved daughter of Joseph and Mary (nee Sudar) Alfirevich. Loving sister of Mary Jo (Robert) Fasan, John (Christine) Alfirevich, Kathy Jo (Timothy) Bradley and Joseph (Lori) Alfirevich. Cherished aunt of John, Olivia, Joey, Aidan, Dylan, Ava, Peter and Paul. Helen was a marketing professional who drew from her own unique mix of creativity, savvy and hard work to positively influence change and development for the companies she served. Her most recent positions were as a marketing consultant and, previously, as a corporate marketing professional for Entertainment Cruises, Inc. Helen was a 1985 graduate of St. Francis de Sales High School, where she was an honor student, cheerleader and homecoming queen. She received her B.S. degree in Child Development from the University of Illinois in 1989 and was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. She was also an avid volunteer who advocated for many causes and organizations, including Florida Hospital Cancer Treatment Center and Wounded Warriors. Helen's greatest joy came from helping others. She was fierce in her stances and used her influence to rally others to join in supporting her causes. While Helen's professional and non-profit work was exemplary, she will be best remembered for her beauty, friendship and huge personality. She could literally light up a room with her keen sense of humor. She exuded light and love and made sure that everyone around her was comfortable and happy. She had a knack for breaking down walls and building confidence. Her presence was effervescent – she was one of those people who simply drew you in. Once you connected with Helen, you had her in your heart for life. She was bold and bright and brilliant. While so many of our memories are happy, we know Helen suffered deeply.
