There were many aspects of Helen which she would like to be remembered. Helen was a polio survivor that had some physical limitations. She never let that define her until one snowy day, in her late 70’s she received a ticket for parking in the handicapped space. She went directly to the police station, paid her ticket and applied for handicapped parking. Helen was also a licensed hair dresser that opened and ran her own shop until marriage and children became her life. Her daughters and nieces still talk about the pixie haircuts by Helen Daly. She was a mother who took her job seriously, she was as tough as she was soft and did not care what everyone else was doing. In the 1970’s Helen took a job at the Shoreline Times that taught her the typesetting industry, she went on to open and run her own business until her retirement. Helen was a grandmother who went by the name of Grandma. Her grandchildren were her joy and anything that involved them took priority over everything else. She loved spending time in Vermont and when happiest when surrounded by family including those children of other mothers.
