I will always have pleasant childhood memories of our two moms chatting on the phone for what seemed (to a child's mind) like hours. Hearing the phrase "It's Aunt Helen!" when someone answered the phone always meant that mom would be henceforth engaged in a long conversation with Helen about the day's pleasures and travails. Partly, these memories are pleasant because I could sense the happiness and relief in mom's voice when she heard the phrase "It's Aunt Helen." Partly, they are pleasant because a conversation with Helen meant we could play with reduced supervision for the next 30 minutes!

So sad to hear about Aunt Helen’s passing. She is so much a part of my childhood memories of family and holidays. I remember seeing my mom sitting at the kitchen table having long conversations on the phone every morning with either Grandma Sirotek or Aunt Helen and many times both. So much to talk about and share with a sister. What a wonderful lesson that was on the importance of staying connected as a family whether the distances between loved ones are short or long. I also remember Aunt Helen having an air of mystery about her because she did not drive. She was my mom’s sister, but so different and almost from a different generation. Now I see how much this early and simple lesson on differences taught me about tolerance and acceptance. Of course, I also remember Aunt Helen every Christmas patiently sitting on our living room couch as presents were opened. I hope she knew how excited I was every year to get a check from her. I always felt so grown up because of the checks she gave me and her other nieces and nephews. Now I realize the more important lesson was that of being able to count on people. You always knew Aunt Helen would be at family events. And so it is with a heavy heart that I cannot be at her funeral today. She is in my thoughts and prayers. Love,Jean Crespi and Family
