July 18, 1968 – Oct 13, 2016 Helina was granted her angel wings on October 13, 2016. Although her life here seemed too short by many, those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gentle smile and humble ways brought so much joy to those around her. Helina always had a contagious smile that caught the eye of everyone she met. She was a Registered Nurse, active member of Calvary Christian Church and enjoyed spending quality time with her family. A word from her beloved husband and best friend, Tommy: "My life seems so empty without you. It doesn't seem fair that I can no longer hold you close to me and kiss your soft sweet lips. You are the love of my life. You have brought so much love, life and laughter to me and our family. Because of your deep faith and trust in God, I can find comfort in knowing that you are no longer suffering here on Earth, but alive dancing and singing with the angels in heaven. I love you deeply. You have given me the best 18 years of my life!" Helina is survived by her husband, Tommy and their two children, Kristian and Justin, her late father Co Ma Sua, mother Rosalina Bautista, seven siblings: Phil, Elizabeth, William, Rosy, John, Rolando, Roberto, late father-in-law James Steilberg Sr, mother-in-law Lorraine Steilberg and many sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews all who love and miss her dearly. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the family to help cover funeral expenses. Memorial services will be held at Calvary Christian Center, 47217 Randall Rd., Hammond, LA 70401, on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 5 pm.
