Helen Gill

July 16, 1921 — July 16, 2017

Helen M. Gill (previously Helen Riefler) passed away peacefully on July 16, 2017 in Ormond Beach, Florida on her 96th birthday.

Helen was born in Honesdale, Pennsylvania to Rhienard and Helen Riefler, but she lived and raised her family in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania for over 50 years.

Helen moved to the Daytona Beach area in 1997 where she became an active member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Before she moved to this area, she was a member of the Altar and Rosary Society at St. John's Parrish in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Helen enjoyed spending time with her family, shopping, crafting, crocheting, bingo, attending mass regularly, and caring her dogs. She was mostly known for her green thumb and her beautiful garden. Those that met her never forgot her big brown eyes, dimples, warm smile, and her love for God.

Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Bernard T. Gill, son, John B. Gill and two brothers, Lawrence and Robert.

Helen will be greatly missed by her daughter, Elizabeth Kane and her husband Donald of Daytona Beach, Florida; grandchildren, Robert Kane of Daytona Beach, Florida, Patricia Fisher (Rick) of Alexandria, Virginia, Katrina Caradonna (Carl) of Port St. Lucie, Florida, and Sharon Lynch (Brian) of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; great-grandchildren, Logan Caradonna, Marshall Caradonna, Nicholas Fisher, Ronan Lynch, Maggie Lynch and Bridget Lynch; many nieces, nephews, other family and friends.

A graveside service will take place at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Hanover Township on Monday, July 24, 2017 at 2PM.
