Helen, 96 years old passed away peacefully on December 21, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Helen was born and raised in Queens, New York. Although her immigrant parents struggled financially, her childhood memories were full of the love of extended family and friends, parties, dancing, music and trips to Rockaway Beach. She was introduced to John, her husband of 46 years by her brother Bob; they married in 1946. The first 15 years of their marriage saw them living all around the country as John pursued his naval career. They settled in Willingboro, NJ in 1962 where they lived the rest of their days.
Helen is preceded in death by her husband, John F. Milliron, Sr., parents Valentine and Justina Trugler, brother Robert and sister Margaret. She is survived by her children Susan Watrous (Jay), Judith Warmuth (Robert), Nancy Milliron (Bruce Schwartz) John Milliron, Jr. (Kimberly), Laura Milliron and Thomas Milliron. Helen had 9 grandchildren: Matthew, Gregory, Kathleen, Christopher, Elizabeth, Justine, Carly, Emily, and John; and six great-grandchildren: Austyn, Luke, Sydney, Carter, Abby, and Charlotte.
Helen cherished her family, referring to them as her "production" and in turn was adored and revered for her love, compassion, understanding, patience and kindness by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, extended family and friends. Helen loved to sew and crochet, to tend to her houseplants and pets and most of all to love and care for her family. Her home was always a gathering place for their friends and later their spouses and children. She was the epitome of grace and love and will be greatly missed and forever loved.
A mass and celebration of her life will be held in the spring.
