Helen (Owen) Mahlik passed away at home in Sun Lakes, Arizona, on Saturday July 8, 2017. Helen was born on January 14, 1937 in Kinsley, Kansas. With her husband of 54 years, Darrell, Helen raised her two boys, Doak and Todd, in Littleton, Colorado. She had an adventurous spirit which took her to places across the globe: from college at the University of Kansas, to post-graduate education at the University of Queensland in Brisbane Australia, to teaching school at the Department of Defense school in Ludwigsburg, Germany (where she met and married Darrell). She was a committed and beloved educator, teaching English for over 30-years in Littleton Public Schools at Euclid Jr. High and Arapahoe High School. After retirement, Helen enjoyed travel throughout the 50 states, numerous cruises, a tour of China, as well as volunteer work. In recent years, Helen valiantly fought the debilitating effects of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.

A Celebration of Helen's Life will be held at 11:00am on August 11, 2017 at the Ken Caryl Ranch House - Shaffer Room in Littleton, CO. Inurnment will follow at the 7-Stones Botanical Gardens.
