Helen Elizabeth Gabor, 90, Force, passed away Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016, at the home of her daughter, Joyce, in Reynoldsville.
Born July 24, 1925, in Dagus Mines, Pa., she was the daughter of the late George J. and Julia E. (Smithbauer) Pfaff. She married Steve Gabor on April 11, 1950. He preceded her in death in 1990.

Helen was also preceded in death by a sister, Anna Jane Keane, and two brothers, Ralph and Donald Pfaff.
Helen always put others first. She raised her family while caring for her paralyzed father and then cared for her mother in her later years. She volunteered in her community and was very active in her church. Helen loved and cherished her children and grandchildren.
