Mary Helen Falender

 

Mary Helen Falender, 82, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 16, 2023 at home in Littleton, Colorado.  She was born on December 24, 1940 in Owensboro to the late James and Margaret Boyd.  Mary Helen was preceded in death by her best friend and loving husband, Leroy Falender, her brother, John Boyd, and many beloved pets that she cherished.

Mary Helen worked for many years and retired from Monfried Optical in Owensboro.  In her 82 years, Mary Helen was a devoted wife, a caring aunt, an “adopted” stepmother, and a cherished friend.  Known for her heart of gold, she always prioritized the well-being of others, offering a listening ear and warm hugs and she lived wholeheartedly for the happiness of those around her.

Mary Helen is survived by her nephew, Allen Boyd and his son Tristan Boyd, her niece Vickie Hall and her son, Israel Sostre, her dear caretakers Deborah and Paul Calzaretta, extended family, and countless friends from Kentucky, Florida, Colorado, and other places she lived and visited.
