Helena Wirth (nee Dolan) passed away on June 10, 2018, at age 72.

She is predeceased by her husband Frank Wirth and older sister Patricia Powers. Survived by three sisters and one brother: Carol Buenzle, Dorothy Dolan, Joanne Moon and James Dolan. She was a beloved sister and companion to those lucky enough to share childhood memories with her. She leaves behind four children, Christopher Wirth, Patrick (Alison) Wirth, Andrew Wirth, Jillian (Christopher) Hannock, and beloved granddaughter Ruby Wirth.

Helen was well known as a free-spirited, fun-loving, caring mother who made all welcome in her home. For her family and friends, her sense of humor and wit never left a moment empty or room silent. Helen will always be known for her strength when meeting the challenge of being a single parent and caring for her children after her husband Frank died. Her resilience and love are seen in her children who bring with them her spirit and zest. Helen loved to read, watch television, solve puzzles, bake, and would often make crafts and costumes for her children. She enjoyed animals, sweets, and collecting antique dolls. Helen's gregarious, loving spirit will be missed by all whose lives she touched.

Family and friends are welcomed to attend a Memorial for Helen on Monday, June 18, 2018, at BLAKE-DOYLE Funeral Home, 226 W. Collings Ave, Collingswood, NJ at 11:00am-12:30pm.

Dear Wirth family:

I wish to convey my sincerest condolences to your entire family. Losing a loved one in death is one of the hardest things that anyone will ever have to deal with. There is a great hope held out to us for the future because God promises to bring those we lost back to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. I hope this brief message will bring you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.

Helen and I have been friends since second grade. We had great times in all these years through good times and bad, when Helen still lived in Camden, she took the bus to my house in pennsauken every Friday, we played archery in Calvary cemetery because my backyard butted up to the cemetery. I will miss her so much.

Patricia
