Helen Johanna Schnable Majewski, 96, of Pine Bluff, died Friday, November 20, 2020 at Trinity Village Medical Center.

She was born September 10, 1924, daughter of Frederick Rannenberg and Ruth Schnable. As a child she was tutored in the European style of home schooling which, besides the basics, included a comprehensive grounding of musical training. She studied the ballet and was an accomplished pianist, violinist and organist.

After meeting her future husband, Zygmunt Majewski, she became one of the few women pilots during World War II. Zygmunt taught flying at Hartsfield Army Air Corps in Atlanta. Helen would often fly to pick him up when he would come home from various stations throughout the country.

Helen’s greatest joy was her children and grandchildren. She loved to travel and she documented her journeys by keeping amazing scrap books which she did all her life.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Ruth McEntire.

Survivors include her five children, Jeanne Painton, Kathy Majewska, Zygmunt Majewski, Jr., Diane Crowder and Jon Majewski; and seven grandchildren.

She had a great belief in the afterlife – so peacefully went home.

I am so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. Hers was a life well lived. I had wanted to visit her to share with her just how much she had meant to me. I loved her dearly. She and Zyg were loving and kind to me when I was a young young man, something I very much needed. Spending time with them and the family will always be a special memory for me. I have remembered and shared stories of my times with them for years. I send my sympathy to Jeanne, Kathy, Diane, Zygmunt , Andy and their families.

Kathy and family so very sorry for your loss. I met your mother and Ms. Ruth for the first time at Lybrand’s Bakery when I worked there many years ago. They knew what they wanted and wanted what they wanted whether it was bakery goods or food from the hot deli. May God grant you peace and comfort in the days to come.
