She was a charter member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Austintown. She was always involved with her children’s lives and volunteered for PTA and other activities.
Helen was an amazing cook and baker. Helen prided herself on making everything from scratch without a recipe. Every Sunday she would invite her family to gather for food, polka music and dancing.
