Helen Kockos Hafner

Helena Kockos Hafner entered the pearly gates, suddenly, unwillingly but peacefully on February 1, 2021 surrounded by her precious, loving family. She was 95 years young. Helena was born in San Francisco to Andrew and Lillian Kockos. She graduated from Lowell High School and went on to attend the College of Notre Dame in Belmont. She was a master at dominoes, bridge and Greek cooking. She adored fashion, beauty, flowers and gardening but above all, her children and grandchildren. She loved dancing, singing, talking on the phone for hours, regaling words of wisdom, and most of all, sharing her love. See's Candy will mourn her loss and we will all miss her orange lipstick kisses and wheat germ waffles.
Helena is survived by Jack, her adoring husband of 75 years, her beloved children John Hafner (Lori), Andrea Lynn (Mark), Christine Germino (John), Diane Hafner, Janet Morid (Mehran) and Sharon MacDonell and grandchildren Bianca, Nicholas, Mark, Sadie, Lauren, Jackson, RJ, Taylor, Andrew, Oliver and Gianni. Helena is also survived by her sister Christine Econn. We will all miss her dearly.
Private services were held. We would like to thank Father Michael Healy for presiding over this day.
In lieu of flowers, the family request donations to Shriners Hospitals for Children
