Obituary: Helen Farkas

Her artwork was displayed at the Governor's Mansion and by the Dunwoody Fine Art Association.

Helen Farkas, age 93, of the Bronx, Mineola and Glen Cove, N.Y., and Dunwoody died Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018.

All her life, Helen was a fun-loving free spirit and welcomed everyone she encountered as if they were family. Her artistic talents and flair for color and design were put into her artwork from a very young age. Mrs. Farkas’ artwork was exhibited in Glen Cove, at the Georgia Governor’s Mansion and with the Dunwoody Fine Art Association, winning many prizes for her talent over the years. Her pride and joy was her blue-shag-carpeted modular pieces that fit together to form a three-tier couch or one huge platform.

Mrs. Farkas was predeceased after 51 years of marriage by her adoring husband, Milton. Survivors include her daughter, Melanie Feingold (David); her son, Andrew Farkas (Ferne); grandchildren Leah, Noah and Daniel Farkas, Rebecca Birnbaum (Jason), and Benjamin Feingold (Lauren); and great-grandchildren Jonah and Emma Birnbaum and Meira, Shaya, Asher and Naomi Farkas.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hadassah. A graveside service was held Friday, Feb. 16, at Arlington Memorial Cemetery. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
