Some of my memorable days that I worked at the Church Pension Fund was when I worked with Helen in Pension Services. She was very thoughtful, considerate and family oriented person to work with and for. I will certainly miss her and would like to extend to her husband, children and grandchildren my deepest condolences and my prayers are with you all.

I was blessed to have known Helen for so many years as we worked for those employed by The Episcopal Church. She is NYC and I in Delaware. Helen always put everyone else before herself. I miss her.

There are no words to express the sadness I feel for the loss of Helen. I remember Helen as a very pleasant person...she always had a beautiful smile. If you had a problem or just need someone to speak with she was the person to go to. Whatever the situation she would have a solution, and everything was kept in confidence. May the family find comfort and strength at this time.

Dearest Leonard Family:
Very deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Helen. I can tell you that any time I spoke to Helen , while at CPG, she always had a story about one of her beloved kids or her husband! She was so proud of all of you!
Her smile always kind and welcoming and ready to help.
Thank you for the gift of Helen. God Bless her and please know my prayers and deep condolences are with you.
