Hellen E. Hizer Obituary
Hellen E. Hizer, 99, of Jeannette, passed away Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, at Redstone Highlands, Greensburg. She was born Sept. 1, 1919, in Alverton, a daughter of the late John and Jeanette (Gibboney) Christner. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Harold W. "Ike" Hizer. She was also preceded in death by a granddaughter, Alicia Hellen Hizer; great-granddaughter, Jessica McEwen; and her eight siblings. Hellen was an avid reader, and enjoyed baking and crafts. She worked as a cook and kitchen manager at the Elliott Co. in Jeannette. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Jeannette. She was a founding member of Grandview Ladies Auxiliary, where she was very involved with cooking and planning events well into her 80s. She loved Monday night bingo there for years, though her losing streaks were legendary. Hellen is survived by her four sons, Denny (Rae), of Sugar Land, Texas, Garry (Linda), of Greensburg, Kurt, of Jeannette, and Kim (Cathy), of North Irwin; 10 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests any memorials be made to Grandview Firehall or First Presbyterian Church in Jeannette. The family would also like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Redstone Highlands, who showed exceptional compassion and care for Hellen during her stay.
