Obituary: Helen Stask

Helen (Moskal) Stasky, of Roslyn Harbor and North Palm Beach, died on June 16, 2010 at home surrounded by her family. Devoted and “Best” mother (mother in-law) to Cheryl (Victor) Mora of Roslyn Harbor, Chuck (Jane) of Throgs Neck and Chad of Hong Kong. Survived by her mother, Helen Moskal of Glen Cove and Vero Beach, and sister Joan Wansor of Glen Cove. Cherished aunt of Tucker and Wendy.

Helen lost her battle to brain cancer after a two-year battle. Her determination was undeterred until the disease finally took over a month ago.

Helen lived in Munsey Park for 30 years where she raised her children, supported their multiple activities, and was active in the St. Francis Guild, the AHRC and all things related to golf.

Until her diagnosis, Helen lived full time in North Palm Beach where she was a full time salesperson at Bloomingdales with many friends there. During her off time, she could be found lounging by the pool with her crossword puzzles and sports betting sheets all while being surrounded by more friends. She continued her involvement with the USGA as chair of the walking scorers whenever there was a US Open on Long Island. She also found time to attend most of the Super Bowl games even though Joe Namath doesn’t play anymore. She also enjoyed watching race cars go round and round.

Helen was always smiling, thanking everyone, and checking in on people.

The family received friends at McLaughlin Kramer Megiel Funeral Home, Glen Cove. The funeral Mass was at the Church of St. Hyacinth followed by Interment  at Holy Rood Cemetery.

Donations may be made to North Shore-LIJ Foundation, 125 Community Dr., Great Neck, NY 11021 for the Brain Tumor Institute, in memory of Helen Stasky.

In honor of Helen, do a good deed…and smile.
