Helen was a member of St. Michael Catholic Church for 67 years; where she served as a Eucharistic Minister, sang in the choir, and enjoyed fellowship in the Alter Rosary Society. She was a wonderful baker and cook, blessing her family with everything homemade. She was known for her special sugar cookies, nut roll, and halupki. Helen was an avid sports fan, who enjoyed watching the Pirates, Steelers, and Penn State football.
