She is survived by three sons and their families, Robert and Betty Carlson, Richard and Linda Carlson, and Ron and Nancy Carlson; two daughters and their families, Elizabeth Nolan and fiance, Joseph Cosentino, and Eileen and Brian Phillips; 26 grandchildren, Joy, Renee, Jennifer, Kelly, Christine, Janel, Rick, Kristen, Amanda, Jeff, Denise, David, Michele, Kate, Daniel, Sarah, Steven, Douglas, David, Mike, Wendy, Kevin, Austin, Noah, Logan and Tristan; 40+ great-grandchildren; and one brother, Robert Vaeth.

Helen's family would like to offer their special thanks to the staff of Park Terrace, Baldwinsville, and St. Joseph's Hospital, Syracuse, for their excellent care and compassion.
