I'll always remember the years she lived with us on eagle st. and going to visit her in her various apartments in Utica on my bike. Her love of reading; she showed me how to use the library and I still love reading.(The Utica library Looked like a palace to me.) We used to read and eat pretzels; me with milk and Helen with Miller beer ,( the lady on the Moon swing).
She lent me $ when I got divorced, something my own parents wouldn't do(and I paid her back as soon as I was able!) She helped me embroider my blue denim jean jacket that i kept for many years; a fad thing of the 60's,( peace symbol and flowers!!) I haven't had much contact with her in her later years, I knew she was very happy with Bud. She always loved the fall colors and why she chose to live in her high rise apt. where she cold see the hills of the valley. my thoughts to all others who will grieve her passing,sincerely .
