     She was a loyal member of the Agudath B'Nai Israel Synagogue, and a member of its Temple Sisterhood and Hadassah.  She was honored by Sisterhood as a Woman of Commitment.
     Helen retired as a civilian employee of the US Navy in the early 1980's. She also was employed at the Independent Press, Lorain City Schools and worked in marketing. 
     Helen was a regular columnist for the A.B.I. Synagogue Jewish Community News for years and still wrote her column at age 101.  Her thirst for knowledge led her to audit classes at LCCC well into her 80's.  She was a member of the Eastside Block Watch. She was a Red Hat Lady.  She enjoyed spending time at the Domonkas Library, ballet dancing, classical music, opera, art, bowling (winning several trophies), and foreign travel.  She was a fan of Rachel Maddow.  When young, she danced ballet.
