Helen was born June 7, 1929 in Long Island, New York. Helen came from a large family, sixth of seven children. She adored her siblings, Mary, Florence, Jim, John, Margaret and Tommy and they adored her. During her childhood they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where she has always called "home". A gifted, creative, and outgoing person she filled our home with homemade forts, neighborhood carnivals, practical jokes, heart shape pancakes, unwavering faith, and daily child-like surprises. Our home was filled with children, animals, and endless fun-filled activities. She made every day beautiful. Heaven became a brighter, more joyful place when she arrived. If you want to honor her legacy, simply brighten someone's day with a "hello", a huge smile or a joyful "God Be with you"!
