Helen graduated from Cathedral High School in Trenton, NJ in 1954. She was an honor student, beloved by her classmates and editor of Cathedral High's yearbook.

Helen was a devoted, full-time mother of five active boys, as well as active in the PTA. She worked as an administrative assistant at McCorristin High School (now Trenton Catholic Academy) for over 20 years before retiring with her husband to Whiting, NJ. In her retirement, she loved reading, crossword puzzles and watching Jeopardy. Her family however, was her pride and joy. She relished the countless family get-togethers and summer vacations on Long Beach Island. She also enjoyed having lunch dates with her dear friends from both the Villa Park neighborhood where she raised her family and McCorristin High School where she worked. She loved to watch baseball and was an avid Phillies fan.
