Helen was preceded in death by her parents, William and Mary Harnisch and her husband Frank P. Genna. Helen was the last surviving of 14 siblings born to William and Mary.

Helen worked for several years for Albertson's Grocery Store after moving to Florida and she enjoyed her community pool on her days off where she met and socialized with her neighbors. She also enjoyed spending time at the beautiful sandy beaches in the Clearwater, Florida area.

She is survived by her daughters Rebecca (Garry) Romeo-Kendall of Riverside, California and Rhonda (E.J.) Streu of Peoria, Arizona; and sons Randy (Debra) Genna of Roscoe, Illinois and Rocco Genna of Holiday, Florida; grandchildren Jayson Romeo, Paul Alongi, and Frank Alongi; three great grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren.
