She is survived by her daughters, Jane (Bruce) Maeroff and Carol (Jim) Aaron; her grandchildren, Daniel Aaron, Mary Aaron, and Jackie Maeroff (John) Seno; and beloved dog, Rudy.

I have such fond memories of your mom Her wonderful sense of humor and her kindness.
Sending prayers and hugs to the Kiddon family. I grew up nextdoor and have so many wonderful memories with them. Helen’s daughters Jane and Carol were like sisters to me. I still have a doll wearing the dress and coat Helen made me. She was an amazing mom, friend and neighbor.
