Helen Matteoni Obituary
Helen Jeanne Matteoni
April 28, 1913-Nov. 15, 2012
Resident of San Jose
She lived to the age of 99 but always retained a wisp of a young girl within her personality. She had an easy smile and a fascination with people. Maybe because she lost both of her parents at a very young age she thrived on attention from friends, family and her husband Ed. She really did not think she was as old as the years she was given. And she always had a twinkle in her eyes.
Helen was born in San Jose on April 28, 1913 to Nick and Frances Chargin, who came to this country from Croatia. She attended Notre Dame High School and worked for Murrison Label on Stockton Street, San Jose's cannery row.
Helen was predeceased by her husband Edward P. Matteoni. She leaves her two sons - Norm and Gary, a daughter-in-law, Pam, grandchildren - Bradley, Brian and Scott Matteoni, and Samantha, Megan and Brandon Matteoni, and great grandchildren - Grace, Grant, Gray, Jarod, Zachery, Kourtnie, Hannah and Gustavo. All were blessed to be part of her life.
In her last eight years she lived at Villa Fatima, Saratoga, and made many new friends.
There will be a private memorial service on December 6, which would have been her 75th wedding anniversary.
Donations in her memory may be made to Notre Dame High School or Bellarmine College Prepatory both in San Jose.
