Helen was educated in the Greenwich and Mt. Kisco N.Y. school systems. During World War II she supported the war effort by working at Electrolux in Greenwich helping to manufacture electrical components for defense equipment. Helen was a devoted member of Saint Timothy Chapel in Banksville serving as a founding member of the Saint Timothy Chapel Ladies Guild. She was also a founding member of the Banksville Independent Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed cooking, particularly celebrating her Polish heritage with ethnic Easter and Christmas recipes passed down to her from her parent's native Poland. Her greatest joy was visiting her beloved great-grandchildren, watching them grow and marveling at their accomplishments. She loved them dearly and did not hesitate to brag about them in a great-grandmotherly way. She thought of them as her Angels right up to the time of her passing.

Her friends and family will miss her kindness, her sense of concern and her wonderful cooking.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on September 11, 2017 at 10:30 am at Saint Michael of the Archangel Church, 469 North Street in Greenwich. At Helen's request her burial will be private. In lieu of flowers charitable gestures may be made in her memory.
