Helen (Glantz) Post, passed on away on Monday, December 31, 2018, surrounded by family. Born on September 5, 1934 in Brooklyn, New York to Edith “Grom” and Irving “Papa” Glantz, Helen was the oldest of 5 children, including her younger brothers Leonard (Barbara) and Herbert (Barbara), as well as her late sisters Sheila Hodas and Eleanor Glantz. After a career as a stewardess with Eastern Airlines in the 1950s, Helen married Jerome Post and welcomed two loving daughters, Debra (John Federico) and Bonnie (David Foncello). Helen, most fondly known as “Grammy” to her adoring granddaughters, Gina and Christa Federico and Lina Foncello, never missed a chance to attend an important event in her granddaughters’ lives. Grammy was known by friends and family near and far for hosting the best Christmas dinners; always completing the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle; and her love of books, knitting, and needlepoint. She will be missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Lankenau Medical Center Foundation or the New York Botanical Gardens, Helen’s favorite place to visit with friends and family.

No one could be prouder than I to have had Helen as a sister-in-law and friend. Of late, She always appeared at each Choral event, flowers in hand for me. I will miss her out there and sing for her always. She leaves a legacy of wonderful daughters, mothers and grandchildren carefully infusing her talents and wisdom in them all. The memory of her will shine ever brightly through all of them . You have done your work, rest now proudly.

Helen was my glamorous and fascinating older cousin. I still remember when she became a stewardess for Eastern Airline. A BIG DEAL. We were all so excited and proud. She was clever, funny and a true trooper.I know how much she cherished Debbie and Bonnie, her granddaughters Gina, Christa and Lina, and her whole family. She will be missed. Maggie
