Helen was so blessed to have wonderful neighbors, close friends and loving family throughout the years, especially Pat, Maryann “Mar” and Joyce, she loved you all. Helen was a lifelong member of the Conemaugh Volunteer Fire Company Ladies' Auxiliary. She had a full life, worked hard, and enjoyed sitting on her porch, talking to the neighbors. She appreciated being able to see her grandchildren play sports. Helen was their biggest fan, always proud of her Blue Jays. Her most recent, and greatest, joy was getting hugs and kisses from Hunter and Brantley. Committal Service will be held at noon on Wednesday at Holy Trinity Church Cemetery, Rev. Dr. Robert F.

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Mrs. Yakulik, my friend Janice's mother. She was such a pretty lady and loved her family so much. I always made a point to say hello to her. I do not get the newspaper and had no idea of her passing until I signed in to Facebook. My heart is heavy for each of her family members. The loss of a mother/grandma is one that will leave such an empty place in your heart and lives. Please accept our most sincerest condolences.
