Helen Marie Smarro

Helen Marie Smarro, age 85, passed away on March 12, 2017 surrounded by family. Helen was suddenly struck with pneumonia and despite a valiant struggle, lost her last battle.
Helen led a long, happy and colorful life. She enjoyed a career as an executive secretary in the advertising field, to several judges in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas and to a Philadelphia Mayor.
In retirement, Helen was an avid walker and talker. She entertained neighbors, friends and acquaintances with colorful stories about her life often including unsolicited advice.
