Helen L. Weiner of West Grove

Helen L. Weiner, 90, of West Grove, died Friday, Jan. 24.

On Feb. 21, 1923, Helen was born in Moundsville, W.V. to Sydney Smith and Elizabeth Wood Smith. She had one older sister, Elizabeth Smith Stoker. Helen married Leon N. Weiner in 1949, and they were together for more than 50 years until his death in 2002.  Helen had one daughter, Jan Noel Hey, of Kennett Square.

During her lifetime, Helen resided in Philadelphia, New Orleans, La., Wilmington and, finally, Kennett Square, where she lived for many decades on the farm that she loved.

Helen was an avid foxhunter and spent many days riding with her daughter, Jan. She enjoyed being outdoors, and, in her earlier years, could often be found atop her tractor, working on her farm, or relaxing outside while observing her flock of geese. She loved all animals and, throughout her lifetime, supported many organizations such as the Delaware Humane Society, the SPCA, and the World Wildlife Fund.

Helen also loved to travel and visited many places around the world. Her favorite trips included a safari in Africa, a visit to the Galapagos Islands, and a vacation to see China and Tibet. Her love of sunshine and being outdoors led her to spend her winters in Port St. Lucie, Fla. where she could visit with lifelong friends.

Helen was predeceased by her loving husband, Leon Weiner and her sister Elizabeth Stoker. She is survived by her daughter, Jan Noel Hey; three grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

To honor Helen’s memory, donations can be made to the Leon and Helen Weiner Foundation, Faithful Friends of Delaware, or to the Delaware Humane Society.

Services and burial will be private.
