Helen and her fraternal twin were born in Czechoslovakia to parents, John and Eva Hudy. After years of WWII tragedy, the remaining family members immigrated to the USA in hopes of finding peace and the American dream. In 1960, she met her future husband on a blind date. They married in 1962 and had two children. Grandchildren came later and they became her pride and joy.
She managed to stay 29 for many years and often stated that laughter was the best medicine. She will be remembered by her quick smile and friendly wink.
