In addition to being an amazing homemaker and mom, she was employed by Aetna Insurance Company as an administrative assistant. Helen had the opportunity to travel, and enjoyed many places such as countries in Europe. Helen’s sense of humor was a fun part of her personality; especially when it came to sneaking up and scaring her grand and great grandchildren. Spending $20. At the Nickle Poker Machine at Harrah’s, socializing at the Senior Center and spending time with her family were just a few things that Helen enjoyed.

She is the beloved wife of the late Alexander Marano; devoted mother of Marie Gregorio, Kathy Scarlata (Tom), Helene Marano and Elaine Maiorini (Leif); loving Gram of Desiree, Alexandra, Joseph, Eric, Jessica, Justin, Dominic and Madison and special Nan to Luke, Giselle and Adrian; dear sister of Patricia Dougherty, James Murphy and Edward Murphy.
