Helen and Albert were lifelong members of Kehilath Israel Synagogue in Overland Park before moving to Massachusetts. Helen enjoyed time spent with the Eastern Stars, American Medical Association and other various women’s clubs. She was an avid Mah Jongg player, still playing until last year.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Marshall and Karen Krashin of Framingham; grandchildren, Marla and John McNulty and Stephen and Dana Krashin; and great-grandchildren, Lillian Elizabeth, John Russell and Jay Thomas McNulty.

Helen was devoted to her entire family and they in turn cherished her greatly; she will be missed.
