This strong, feisty force of nature grew up in Syracuse and spent most of her adult life in North Syracuse and Baldwinsville. Helen retired from Carrier Corporation where she maintained lifelong friendships with many co-workers. She also continued friendships with her Blodgett Vocational High School classmates, “The VO Girls” – amazing ladies who continued luncheon gatherings for over 70 years! She made friends easily and kept them, as demonstrated by the cards and letters that supported her through these final months.
Helen traveled the world, enjoying Europe, Japan, Alaska and Hawaii among others. She was a sports enthusiast, bowling and playing golf, attending several Masters Tournaments and cheering on SU football and basketball. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends, spending time with her cats, games at Morgan Square, and spending time with her dear friends and family.
Family would like to express sincere appreciation to the aides, nurses and staff at The Cottages #31 for their compassionate and loving care and support over the past six months.
