Obituary for Helen Kotila

Helen Kotila, 82, passed away peacefully in her home on June 21, 2021.

She will be deeply missed by her beloved husband Charles. She was the loving mother of Laura (Joel) Whitfield, Diane Kotila, Karen (Dave) Sarris and Nancy (Brent) Eastman, and she adored her grandchildren Jeff, Sarah, Claire, Emme, Grace, Ava and Lydia.

Helen spent her life devoted to her husband and family, and she lived her love every day. Every problem, every long distance phone call was responded to with unconditional love and positivity. You knew no matter what you were going through, it would all be okay. Helen loved to chat with everyone, especially young mothers so she could coo over their babies, and her small talk and compliments would brighten anyone's day. She was a gifted pianist/organist, a skilled shopper with her daughters, and her preparation for Christmas morning was legendary. Most important, her sun rose and set with her husband, and he was her everything.

If you told Helen you loved her, she would likely reply "love you more." And she most certainly did.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road Thursday, June 24, 4-7pm. A prayer service will be held on Friday at 10am at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Oakview Cemetery, Royal Oak.
