Helen Cecilia Maraldo Obituary
Helen Cecilia Maraldo

Avondale, PA - Helen Cecilia Maraldo, age 96, of Avondale, PA, passed away on Monday, July 9, 2018 at Seasons Hospice at Christiana Hospital. She was the wife of Ernest Maraldo who passed away in 2011, and with whom she shared 64 years of marriage.

Born in Wilmington, DE, she was the daughter of the late Nazareno Antonini and the late Giovanina DeSantis Antonini.

She was an Insurance Broker for State Farm Insurance for over 30 years retiring in 2000.

Helen was an amazing woman. Incredibly talented, kind and compassionate, she had a zest for life. She was a fabulous cook, she loved gardening---her rose garden was her pride and joy---and her daughters, Pam and Donna, were the apple of her eye. She loved to dance and often people left the dance floor to watch while she and her husband, Ernest whirled around in a waltz or a polka. She was a very wise woman, so many people learned many life's lessons from her. One of her favorites: Never say "I can't. Because what you really mean is I won't. You can do and be anything you set your mind to." She loved her years at State Farm, and volunteering at the Kennett Senior Center, she loved to entertain and had a wide circle of friends.

One of ten children, she is survived by her brother Rudy, her children, Pam and Donna and Donna's husband, Lou Scarborough.

You are invited to visit with her family and friends from 11:00 to 1:00 on Friday morning, July 13, 2018 at the Kuzo & Grieco Funeral Home, 250 West State Street, Kennett Square, PA. Her Funeral service will follow at 1:00. Burial will be in St, Patrick's Cemetery, Route 82, Kennett Square, PA.

In memory of Helen, you can send flowers or the family welcomes contributions to the Brackenville Center, 100 Saint Claire Drive, Hockessin, Delaware 19707.
