Helen Jean McBride Hein

 

Helen Jean McBride Hein, 88, a longtime resident of the Carmel Home, passed away on Monday, September 5, 2022 at the Carmel Home.  She was born July 27, 1934 in Daviess County.  She had resided at the Carmel Home for the past 12 years.  She had been an active member and volunteer of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church for approximately 45 years and had also been active in the Legion of Mary and the McCauley Ministry where she took communion to the sick.  She was a devout Catholic that would defend the faith and make every effort for years to attend daily mass.  Her devotion to the Blessed Mother was witnessed by her rosary in her possession at all times.  She was well known by the staff at the Carmel Home for belting out her rendition of the Marian hymn, Ava Maria… Helen was a big supporter of the Right To Life.

 

Helen was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and her many dogs through the years.  She was in the first graduating class at Owensboro Catholic High School in 1952.  She also enjoyed playing bingo, cards, and had a passion for raising her flowers and working in her yard.

 

Helen was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Vera Kate Petrie McBride; her husband of fifty-one years, William J. Hein, who passed away on October 1, 2006; sisters, Louise Henning, Dena McBride, and Virgie Tichenor; a brother, Robert McBride; and daughter-in-law, Julie VanDyke Hein.

 

Surviving are her children, Frank “Duncan” Hein and wife Karen, Joanie Wathen and husband George, Vicki Mills and husband Joe, and Stephen Hein, all of Owensboro; a brother, David McBride of Owensboro, 15 grandchildren, Jodi (Adam) Scott, Chris (Lyndsey) Hein, Katie (Robert) Edge, Mary (Michael) O’Herron, Will (Kelly) Wathen, John (Jennifer) Wathen, Ben (Becca) Wathen, Christina Wathen, Jessica (Brady) McKinley, Brad (Nicole) Mills, Joseph (Macey) Mills, Michael Mills and fiancé Mallory Pacquin, Nick Mills, Sam Hein, and Max Hein; 28 great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, and her longtime roommate at the Carmel Home, Beverly Ebelhar.

 

The funeral Mass for Helen will be 11 AM Thursday, September 8, at the Carmel Home with entombment following in Resurrection Cemetery Mausoleum.  Visitation will be from 9 AM until time of service Thursday at the Carmel Home.
