PUGLIESE, Helen (nee Carroll) - God called Helen peacefully on June 7, 2020, at the age of 81.

Beloved wife of Thomas Richard Pugliese (predeceased), and daughter of Frank and Katherine Carroll (predeceased), sister of Jimmy Carroll (predeceased).

Helen is survived by her children, Caroline Pugliese (Paul Socholotiuk), Thomas Pugliese (Marisa Naccarato-Pugliese), and Mary Ellen Pugliese (Richard Raposo).

She will be missed by her grandchildren, Julia, Erin, Nicholas, Elisa, Tomas, Regan, and Ryleigh.

Helen grew up in Ottawa and was a teacher and social worker for many years. She retired in Ajax, Ontario, concluding a career in community justice initiatives.

Helen, filled with faith, had a witty sense of humour and she loved history, art, and music. Helen enjoyed travelling, dinner with friends, and gardening.
