Helen loved with all her heart and led a life caring for others. She enjoyed babysitting her nieces and nephews and had close relationships with her family. Without fail, her family could always count on a happy birthday serenade phone call from Helen. Helen was a woman filled with kindness and she always made everyone feel welcome. Helen also had a deep love of animals and would rescue and give them a loving home. She donated monthly to many animal organizations and enjoyed receiving gifts from them as a thank you for her contributions.

Helen loved dancing, especially to the oldies. She would go dancing anywhere and everywhere she had the opportunity. She was a fan of old western movies and anything that aired on MeTV. Her family takes comfort in their fond memories of the wonderful woman Helen was. Helen was a member of St. Stephens Episcopal Church, Wilkes Barre.


In addition to her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her brothers, Gerald, Joseph, and Andrew Boback.
