Helen leaves a nephew and his wife, Donald and Barbara Gaudio, as her caregivers, and many other nieces and nephews, from great-nieces and great-nephews to a great-great-great-nephew.
She was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Edna Gaudio, Margaret DeGenaro, and Ann Melone; and a brother, Thomas Melone.
Friends and family may call from 4 to 5 p.m. on Friday at the church, prior to the Mass.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the wonderful care that was given by the staff on the east wing of Omni Manor.
