Helena was a homemaker and later joined her husband in operating the Webster House Restaurant, a well-known Worcester dining institution, for over 30 years. Helena left her mark at the Webster House in many ways, from her pastry creations and special wine dinners to ethnic celebrations and customer newsletters. The Webster House’s ambiance reflected her friendly nature, sense of humor, and ability to bring people together.
Helena loved spending time with her grandchildren, going to their games, making gingerbread houses with them and baking tasty cookies, pies, and cakes. Helena greatly enjoyed her friends at the YMCA, who always brought her great cheer and comforted and supported during her illness.
