She was the petite beautiful vocalist with the sparkling blue eyes that sang like a songbird. She could easily rival Helen O'Connell and deliver a melody that certainly caught the eye of a handsome young musician. Of course she fell in love the leader of the band. Even though Ed loved Glenn Miller, she still leaned toward Tommy Dorsey. Naturally, they had the big Italian winter wedding at the former St Peter Church at Milo, (just north of 5th avenue, before the freeway toppled the parish and school.) Then, the war came and changed everyone's life again.

Going shopping or taking her to get her hair done always made an interesting outing because we enjoyed sharing a leisurely lunch and she would talk about being young, old boyfriends, and living at home with her sisters long before marriage and kids. But to be honest, it was my sister Truey, who started the visiting tradition since Helen never did learn to drive. I only came on the scene later after I moved back to Columbus.

Always tastefully dressed, a lovely simple hairstyle with impeccable makeup that framed a dazzling smile, she undoubtedly earned her title of “Barbie Doll of 1947.” There is only one adjective that really describes her personality – she was a doodle. By that I mean, she was unique, funny, one of a kind, and as direct and plain spoken as they come. Good or bad, you never had to guess what was on her mind. I am so grateful for all those outings because you left me with so many smiles and laughter. Doodles, Happy Birthday - you're always with me. Love, Dawn Marie

I have a lifetime of wonderfully funny memories of Aunt Helen and so many good times, and laughter that we shared through the years, with the many DeMotillos and Schirtzingers. We will forever miss her pretty smiling face!

Let me first offer my sympathy for the loss of your mom. It is so hard to believe that so much time has passed since we were all so much younger and enjoying each others company. I think the best I have to offer to each of you is that the memories we have help to ease the pain we feel with your mom's passing. I find myself remembering your mom's laugh and the fun she had and brought to the times we all got together. I am sure that as you all have time to sit and reminisce, the joy of those memories will help lighten your loss.

Aunt Helen was a charmer who possessed grit and grace in equal measure. When I was a little girl, I thought of her as the stylish "pretty lady" who made my favorite Christmas cookie (Anisette) and made me feel at home whenever I was in her company. I will remember her as my dear aunt who loved to laugh. Many will miss her singing, but her distinct laugh was always music to my ears.

My heart goes out to Mary Louise, Gary, Michael and their loved ones.

Wanted to express our heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your dear Mother. Cousin Helen was a strong women, and she lived a life full of faith, strength, and family. We never want our loved ones to leave us, but Helen was blessed with a long and full life. She has now joined her sweet husband Eddie. She will also see in heaven my parents- her Aunt Katie & Uncle Leonard Diorio. Our prayers are with the family.
With Sympathy-
