Helen was born in South Boston on July 8, 1928 to William and Bronia Zaleskas, who were from Lithuania. Helen had one sibling, an older brother, Stanley, who is deceased.
Helen grew up in South Boston and often expressed how she enjoyed going to nearby Carson Beach each summer to swim. Eventually as a young women she moved to Dorchester and later to Cambridge and Somerville. She eventually came in contact with Jehovah’s Witnesses and began to study the Bible. She was so excited to get many of her questions answered.
Helen dedicated her life to Jehovah and was baptized in 1958 at the Divine Will International Assembly held in New York City. She was a member of the Dorchester congregation until she moved to Cambridge.
She was a faithful member of the Cambridge Congregation for many years until her death. She enjoyed sharing the truth with others and she regularly participated in the house to house ministry until she no longer was able to do so because of health issues.
Helen also enjoyed traveling and visited many different places during her lifetime. One of her favorite trips was going to Hawaii to attend a convention where she was overjoyed with the beauty, saying she thought she was in the new World.
We all look forward to welcoming Helen back to the real new world that Jehovah so lovingly has promised.
It was Helen’s wish that there not be any visiting hours. Instead she asked for a memorial talk to be given at the Cambridge Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 9 Beech Street, Cambridge, MA 02140. The talk will also be broadcast on Zoom. Saturday March 18, 2023 at 2:00 PM.
