Helen Josephine Baron Miluszusky, 99, of South Abington Twp., died Monday at Forest City Nursing Home & Rehab Center, where she recently was admitted. She was the widow of William Raymond Miluszusky, who died Oct. 12, 1995. The couple was married more than 57 years.
Born Sept. 30, 1917, in Nanticoke, daughter of the late John and Agnes Poremba Baron, Helen retired from Ames Manufacturer ILGWU Union, where she worked as a sewing operator for more than 30 years, and was a member of International Ladies Garment Workers Union. She was a member of St. Gregory Parish, Clarks Green.
She was an avid reader who enjoyed current events and politics. She was proud to have met President Donald Trump. Helen was an excellent seamstress and enjoyed sewing and making clothing for her family. An excellent cook, she enjoyed family gatherings where no one left hungry. She enjoyed dancing, especially polkas. There is comfort in knowing she is reunited with her husband and may be dancing with him. Her gentleness and smile will be sadly missed.
