Age 99 of Morris, passed away Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at the Manteno Veterans’ Home in Manteno.
Born November 18, 1921 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Helen Elizabeth was a daughter of Adam and Filomine (Spejwski) Jaworski. She was raised and educated in Milwaukee, and attended Teacher’s College in Conway, Arkansas. In 1943, Helen enlisted in the United States Women’s Army Corps and served as a general clerk until her honorable discharge in 1945. While serving her country, she met Felix J.

She was an active member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Morris and volunteered at Immaculate Conception School for 25 years.
