Obituary of Helen T. Paparelli
Helen Paparelli, 93, passed away on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at her home in Eynon, PA following a brief illness. Helen was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was steadfast in her love of family and friends, and was kind, gracious, and giving to all. She lived quietly, independently, and with an indomitable spirit. Helen was a talented seamstress and accomplished cook. One of her greatest joys was gathering her loved ones together to share a meal. She will be intensely missed and always remembered for her gentle smile and sparkle in her eyes. Helen was a devout member of St. Mary of Czestochowa Catholic Church and a member of the Altar and Rosary Society. She was comforted and inspired by her faith and love of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
