Helene Hall, 82, died peacefully on Nov. 28, 2011. She is remembered with great love by Norman, her husband of 59 years, and by her children and their spouses, Andrew and Dalila, Stephen and Jaffa, Eve and Don, by her adoring grandchildren Ethan, Alex, Emily, Avery, Noah and Aaron, and by many other family members and good friends in the Great Neck community and beyond.
Library colleague Margie Chodosch added, “Helene worked at the Great Neck Library for 25 years, from 1980 until her retirement in 2005. She was a dedicated reference librarian, known for her extensive knowledge of literature and theater. We remember her for her wry sense of humor, her good taste and sophistication. She was an asset to the Reference Department.”
Mrs. Hall was also an active member of the Great Neck Estates Environmental Commission and was involved with its work in the eighties to take strong steps to protect and preserve village trees.
