Helen Pappas

February 5, 2022

Helen Pappas (nee Gruchalski) passed away Saturday, February 5, at 101 years of age.  She is survived by many loving nieces and nephews; a host of cherished great nieces and nephews and extended family; and good friend, Kim Thurman.  She is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Kazmiera; brothers: Edward and Henry Gruchalski; sisters: Mary Zakrzewski, Bernice Gawronski, Jean Szpakowski and Irene Kopanski; and her beloved husband, Harry.

Helen was a life-long resident of the region, and a long-time member of St. Hedwig Church.  She loved to keep her hands and mind busy (which many would say contributed to her long and happy life).  She was a fantastic seamstress and walked anywhere, and everywhere, at any chance she could get.

Her sunny smile and irresistible charm will be missed by all who knew and loved her.  Per Helen’s wishes, there will be no formal services.
