Helen's grandchildren were her greatest pride and joy. They will forever cherish her love, humor, and pre-kindergarten poker lessons which included their own personal stash of pennies. We will never forget "Grandma's Lasagna" and the joy she took bringing her family together. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother; a good friend and neighbor to all. We will miss you.
