Helen E. Yurish, 97, a resident of Hudson, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on Wednesday evening, July 29, 2015, at Celtic Healthcare Hospice, Inpatient Unit, at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre. Her beloved husband was the late Stephen J. Yurish, who passed away Nov. 8, 1995. Stephen and Helen were blessed to share 56 wonderful years of marriage. Born Jan. 27, 1918, in Hudson, Helen was one of eight children born to the late Sylvester and Mary Dzwoniarek Piotrowski. Raised in Hudson, Helen was a graduate of the former Plains Memorial High School, Plains Township. As a young woman, Helen was employed as a supervisor by the former Hessler Laundry, which was located on North Main Street, Wilkes-Barre. Later, Helen attended Empire Beauty School, Wilkes-Barre, where she received her cosmetology certification. For 50 years, she operated a beauty parlor out of her home, retiring at the age of 87. Helen was dedicated to her customers, and would even occasionally work on Sundays if her customers were attending special events. Additionally, Helen served as secretary for 38 years for her family's former business, Yurish Music Center Inc., Kingston. A faithful Catholic, Helen had a strong devotion to the Blessed Mother. She was a longtime member of St. Maria Goretti Roman Catholic Parish, Laflin, and once belonged to the parish's "Young at Heart" club. Helen enjoyed many things in life, especially going to casinos and traveling to the Bahamas. Above all, her greatest enjoyment in life was being surrounded by her loved ones. A devoted mother, mother-in-law and grandmother, she freely and lovingly gave of herself, never asking for anything in return. Although her presence will be greatly missed, there is much joy in knowing she is reunited with her beloved Stephen and all those who have gone before her. In addition to her parents, Sylvester and Mary Piotrowski, and her husband, Stephen, Helen was preceded in death by her brothers, Joseph and Frank Piotrowski, and her sisters, Frances Goobic, Joanne Stefanowski, Martha Mrozinski, Stella Okrasinski and Mary Graham. Helen is survived by her son, Richard S. Yurish and his wife, Eileen, Hudson; her granddaughter, Brenda Gomb and her husband, Scott; and generations of nieces and nephews.

He was then sent to Mitchell Air Force Base, Hempstead, N.Y. where he was assigned to a communications group. He said that he really did not know why he got the duty except that is where the bodies were needed at the time.

During the Vietnam War he served in Thailand where bombing runs were being made on North Vietnam and while he stated he was in no immediate danger his base was under periodic attack. He continued his communications duty at Forbes Air Force Base in Kansas where he received additional training and honed his skills in radio and television journalism. He was assigned to Fort Clayton, Panama, where he did sports, news, and current events in Spanish. Joe was discharged in 1976 with the rank of staff sergeant after more than 20 years in the military. He was the recipient of the Vietnam Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, National Service Defense Medal and Air Force Good Conduct Medal. After his separation from the military he attended college under the GI Bill while working various jobs including the U.S. Border Patrol. Joe received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Florida International University in 1986. He was employed by the U.S. Customs Service for 20 years and retired in 2006.
