Helen has been a friend of mine for over 50 years. We worked together in WT Grants store, lived a few blocks apart in Belleville, and saw each other at 5:30 mass every week. She was always full of energy and life. Her smile, unconditional love and friendship, and her most positive attitude in dealing with whatever life threw at her will be what I remember most about her. She and Sal lived a storybook love story. How she missed his presence and love in her life when he passed away. I find such comfort in knowing that they are together again making Heaven’s angels laugh. RIP my dear friend. You will be missed but never forgotten by myself and my parents. Christine Fusaro

I always looked forward to seeing Helen’s smile and stories, at the 5:30 Saturday evening Mass in Holy Family Church. Her warm personality and invitations for coffee are something I will remember fondly. She was lost without Sal here, but I’d like to think they’re happy again together in Heaven. Rest in peace, Helen. You are missed.
