Helen "Dukie" Zacks Obituary
Zacks, Helen "Dukie"
Helen "Dukie" Zacks, 92, of East Haven, passed away peacefully at home on November 6, 2017 with her family by her side. She was born November 1, 1925 in Jersey City, NJ to William and Anne (Knapp) Bridges. Helen is survived by her loving and caring children, Sharon Willard of East Haven, Dolores Ricci (William) of Wallingford, Joanne Frank (Joel) of Branford, Robert Zacks Jr. (Cindy) of Hamden, William Zacks (Robin) of Trumbull, Christine Zacks of East Haven, 12 grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and special niece, Gail DeBiase (Anthony). Helen was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Robert Zacks (2006), son, Thomas Zacks (survived by widow, June Squeglia of Branford), and siblings: William Bridges, Edward Bridges, Robert Bridges, Frederick Bridges, Harold Bridges and Dolores Steirs.
Dukie was the most kind, thoughtful, selfless giving soul who lived her life for the care and love for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her undeniable devotion to her family and faith in the Lord was her guiding light through life. Anyone who met Dukie fell in love with her infectious spirit and became a friend for life. She will be sadly missed by everyone that she touched. A special thank you to Helen's caregivers and the CT Hospice of Branford Home Care for their kind and compassionate care.
Family will receive friends from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home), 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven.

Dukie was a gift from God that created our family, for which we are truly blessed.
