I'll always remember Helen's great sense of humor and laughter. She had a bright outlook on life, and enjoyed a good joke. She was very proud of her Irish heritage and had many Irish jokes to share. I remember her doing the Irish Jig at a family wedding with her sisters! She loved her family and friends, was a devout Catholic, and was a generous and kind person. Helen had the most beautiful smile, and shared it often. My deep condolences to her family. Rest in Peace, Aunt Helen - you will be greatly missed. Lots of love to you. Mary and Gene Jacobs
