Cinderella Mae Helbig (nee Hewitt), age 77, of Lorain, passed away on Thursday, September 15, 2016, at the Cleveland Clinic, Avon, after being ill for 8 months.
She was born on October 31, 1938 in West Brownsville, PA and moved to Lorain in 1955, where she has made home since. Cinderella enjoyed being a loving wife and mother, caring for her family and home.
