Helena Casciotti Obituary
Casciotti, Helena
98, of Mesa, AZ, passed away on March 26, 2016 at Brookdale Springs in the company of her loving daughter, Linda Conklin. Helena was born July 2, 1917, the only child of Charles V. Searing and Helena Mitchell. She was raised in Union, NJ, graduating from Union High School in 1936. She then attended Ithaca College where she met her husband of 71 years, Guido "Gil" Casciotti. She received her degree in music in 1940. After teaching music in Nichols, NY, Helena became pregnant, sent her husband off to WWII and returned to Union, NJ. Ever self-sufficient, curious, and strong-willed she passed along these traits to her children, Linda Conklin of CA, Janet Seabra of NJ, and Philip Casciotti of ME, as well as her grandchildren Jeff and Erick Conklin, Nicholas Casciotti, Allison Wentzell, and Alex Casioffe, and her two great grandchildren, Dylan and Ethan Conklin. She was delighted to learn that three more great grandchildren were on the way. A memorial celebration to reunite her with Gil is being planned at a treasured spot in the Superstition Mountains. Donations can be made to the Sierra Club Foundation. Condolences may be left on Helena's online guest book at www.sonoranskiesmortuaryaz.com.
