I will always remember your sweet smile and kind words to me at Village Hair Salon. R.I.P.
Helen I will miss seeing you at Catholic Daughters Court Our Lady of Fatima #1387. You always had a smile on your face and full of wonderful compliments. I am glad I had the honor of seeing you at our last meeting and I was able to give you a great big hug....R,I.P. Wonderful Lady...
It was a honor knowing Helen, she was a beautiful person who I truly will miss being around. I am Micheal Ammannito her grandson's sister-in-law Izabel R Benitez and Helen(Nona) as I knew her will always be in my heart and prayers. My deepest sympathy for the entire Ammannito family
Your the most amazing lady, along with your daughter Flora. I loved the times we spend talking with you both in Admitting, after closing up the gift shop for the night. You were so full of energy, fun, delightful stories, and most of all, so caring. I will miss you. Love
Helen was one of a kind! She always had a smile and took the time to always ask how your life was going. God truly has received an Angel. You will be missed Helen.
I have had the privilege of knowing Helen for over 25 years through the San Antonio Hospital Auxiliary. For many years she greeted the patients coming for surgery and was a delight for all. A very compassionate person, she will be missed. We had many good times together. My sympathy to her daughter Flora, also a volunteer, and her family. Heaven has a new angel.
will miss seeing Helen with her smile at our Sons of Italy meetings and her positive outlook on life . God Bless you Helen
Nonna (or Nonse as I called you), you always watched over your family and friends. Now is the time God will look after you. Take a look futher...
Helen loved working for Upland Lemon Growers Association and retired in 1978 after 31 years. She then worked for stores in local cities for close to ten years. In 1988, Helen began volunteering at San Antonio Hospital in the Admissions and the gift shop. In 2010, Helen donated more than 20,000 hours for 23 years. She was an active participant in the Catholic Daughters of America, the Sons of Italy, the Fun After Fifty Club and the events for senior citizens at the Gibson Center in Upland. She will be remembered for her enthusiasm, optimism and sense of humor. Helen was very supportive and greatly enjoyed events for senior citizens.
Besides from enjoying interaction with others, Helen loved cooking for visitors as well as family and growing her own vegetables. One Italian pasta guests remember is her home-made gnocci!
Though she claimed not to be a good dancer, Helen loved music and had a beautiful singing voice; she enjoyed singing along with records at home and hymns in church.
Helen will be remembered for giving so much of herself to support charity organizations and her love of family and friends.
My family and Helens family knew each other for years, they had such a good time together, now they can be together in heaven and relive those old memories!! Kathy Kime Pimper
My sincere sympathy. It was pleasure in my life to know Helen. I will miss sitting next to her at church. She was a great lady, and I was honored to know her. Jan Carmell
I remember Mrs. Ammannito fixing the best meals, and I got to enjoy many of them. She always treated me so nice. You are now a special angel watching over all your kids and grandkids. R.I.P dear lady.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
Helen had the biggest heart, always giving of her time and talents. And Sharp! What a memory. The mere mention of her name makes us smile. All were Blessed to have known her.
Only time passes on to the next scene. Memory remains part of the heart.
Sincere Blessings to All, Pat and Mike Bozek

I WILL MISS YOUR FABULOUS MEALS , MOM AND ALL THE STORIES ABOUT MY DAD AND THE LEMON PACKING. HOUSE LADIES. LOVE YOU, YOUR DAUGHTER, NORMA JEANNE
I am very pround to be one of 11 people to call Helen my grandmother. I have the best memories of holidays sitting at a very long table full of fabulous homemade food and many family and friends, all 5 of her grandchildren running around and having fun. As she got older we all heard many interesting stories than I will never forget. She will be deeply missed by all
