Helen was a beloved aunt to all of the members of her family and will be greatly missed. She was kind, compassionate, generous and selfless. She cared for her aging parents while working as a bank clerk and managing two apartment complexes. In her younger years she enjoyed spending time with her sister and many cousins, breeding Pomeranian dogs and traveling. An especially memorable trip was when she went cross country with her sister and her cousins.
