Helen, better known as Memere’ to all who knew her. She was a fun loving, outgoing woman who enjoyed the company of friends, but most importantly family, Her strength came from her Catholic beliefs and she never missed Sunday morning Mass. She was truly loved by all who knew her and would make each of us feel special in her own way when she pulled you aside for a little personal chat. Her giggle was contagious, her hugs were the best. Memere’ enjoyed life to the fullest, she managed to keep life in balance by keeping it full of fun and games. She easily relaxed by doing puzzles, a challenging game of scrabble or cribbage and never missed a QVC deal or a WWE event. She made a name for herself as the Family Beer Pong Champion She was the life of family parties when she lit up the dance floor and always ended the evening with her traditional tears of joy. Memere will always be in our hearts and prayers.
