Helen was pre­vi­ously em­ployed as a mu­ni­tions worker at Rem­ing­ton Arms in Bridge­port dur­ing World War and was later em­ployed by PhilGas/ Sub­ur­ban Propane in Derby, CT. Helen was born in Shel­ton, CT, where she lived most of her child­hood and adult years.

Al­though Helen of­ten dis­played a tough ex­te­rior, fam­ily meant ev­ery­thing to her, and she was kind and gen­er­ous to those she loved! From a very young age, with­out ever grad­u­at­ing from high school, she worked her way up the ranks to be­come an ac­com­plished busi­ness­woman.
