Helen Margaret Samolis (nee. Rudd), age 77, passed away August 17, 2020. Cherished mother of four daughters, Rachel Samolis, Melissa Bush (Jake), Gretchen Elwood (Mike), Bridget Lambright (Jason Clapper). Proud grandmother of 3 grandsons, Aaron Barnett, and Jordan and Ryan Elwood. Loved dearly by James Christopher Meadors and his daughter Isabella Rose Demarco who were like a son and granddaughter to Helen.

She was a career educator. She spread excitement through the halls of Brecksville – Broadview Heights High School for many years. She was an avid bowler, enjoyed reading, could tackle any crossword puzzle, a domino queen, adored every second with her grandsons and was a devoted Browns fan. She brought joy and laughter to anyone she met. She had the most generous, loving heart and made life better for all she knew. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Bernard Joseph Samolis of 50 years.
