Helene Shari Flick
(d. 06 Dec 2016)

Newport News High School Class of 1964

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I was quite shocked and saddened to read this news this Sunday morning. Helene Flick, Class of 1964, sister of Kenny Flick ('67), passed away in Newport News on Tuesday, December 06, 2016 at the age of 71.

   When we were children, my family and the Flicks both lived in the Stuart Homes Apartments. There was another pretty little Helene living there as well, Helene Schanzer ('69). To distinguish them, we referred to the girls as "Big Helene" and "Little Helene". When my only daughter,   Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC, was born at last exactly one month before my 40th birthday, I insisted her middle name be Helene in honor of these two little playmates of mine.

  May her memory be for a blessing always.

Helene and I were friends during our high school days at Newport News High. We shared stories almost every day and I enjoyed her company very much. Saddened by the news of her illness and eventual death. Praying for strength for the family and those so close to her.

So sorry to hear of Helene's passing. She always wore a smile and was so upbeat whenever we ran into each other.
