Mrs. Helen Curry died peacefully in her sleep on Monday, July 8, 2013 at the Stonebridge Senior Living Community in Skillman, N.J. where she had resided in good health for the last eight years. She was just five months shy of her 100th birthday. Helen Marie Garrity was born to John and Helen "Nellie" Garrity in Bridgeport, CT on the twenty-fifth of December, 1913. She grew up with her brother John in Bridgewater, CT and graduated from New Milford High School, New Milford, CT June, 1931. She graduated from Larson Junior College, New Haven, CT in 1934 and went on to work at the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation in Stratford, CT. Helen married Mr. Charles George Curry on the second of July, 1943 in South Plainfield, NJ and resided there, in Metuchen, Plainfield and Piscataway, NJ for many years. Together, they raised four children: Thomas of Laguna Beach, CA; George (deceased, Vietnam, 1966); Philip of Wilmington, VT and Kathleen of Skillman, NJ (deceased, 2009).
She is survived by two daughters-in-law, Maureen Ann Nichuck Curry of Laguna Beach and Maureen Frances Cross Curry of Wilmington and a son-in-law, Mr. Anthony Santye of Skillman, as well as 14 loving grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
Helen took great pride in her family and suffered mightily the loss of her soldier son, George. A true Irishwoman to the end, she wasn't afraid of hard work and found great humor in everything and everyone she came in contact with.
