Helen Marth, in the light of the Arizona harvest moon, passed away on October 22, 2013 peacefully in her sleep.
She has given us years of beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. Helen was an amazing mother, grandmother and friend. She was loved by everyone who had the privilege to know her.
Helen was born in Passaic, New Jersey on June 7, 1925. Her parents, Stephen and Rose Marth emigrated to the United States from Burgenland, Austria in 1921. Helen attended Holy Trinity R.C. Grammar School, Pope Pius XII High School, Class of 1943, College of St. Elizabeth, Class of 47 with a degree in Chemistry, and Seton Hall University, Class of 65, Master of Arts in Education.
Helen was married to John Charles Toth, a World War II Marine Corps veteran in September 1948. She was widowed in January 1958. Helen taught Chemistry and Math in the Clifton Public School System for 28 years when she retired in 1987. Helen traveled extensively, enjoyed retirement and especially enjoyed being a full-time grandmother. Helen lived in Clifton, New Jersey from 1925 - 1997. In 1997, Helen and her mother, Rose Marth, relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona. She loved Arizona and her wonderful saguaro cactus and considered Scottsdale her second home.
Helen is survived by the families of her daughter, Joanne Toth Flynn, of Scottsdale, Arizona, her son, John Charles Toth of Tallman, New York, and her daughter, Nancy Toth Munczinski of Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, and her five grandchildren, Elyse Flynn Meyer, John Toth, Stephen Toth, Michael Toth and Anneliese Munczinski Scott.
