Obituary

Helen Fuentes, 91, of Bowmansville, PA, passed away after a brief illness on, April 10, 2020
Helen was born and bred an Irish Jersey girl from Elizabeth to John J. Cullen, Sr. and Helen (Lutz) Cullen.

She would fall in love with a fellow also from Elizabeth named Joseph Fuentes. They were married in 1947 and had a beautiful marriage for seventy-one years. Helen and Joseph lived in Garwood from 1956 to 1989. They finally settled in Bowmansville, Pennsylvania in 1989, where they lived in a quaint neighborhood near their son Kevin and his wife Karen. With their neighbors and friends, they loved going bowling and playing lightning rounds of gin rummy. She loved watching the Golden Girls and Jeopardy and would've been a better than average contestant.

Helen loved Angels, and Angel knickknacks adorned their house. She always wore an Angel pin on her blouse or coat.
She really enjoyed and looked forward to her holiday outings and dinners, along with family and friends, with her son, Rick, and his wife, Eileen, in New Jersey.

Helen and Joe were big fans of the New Jersey State Police. She loved attending all of the “Family Days” and other NJSP annual events. She rarely missed a Pub Night fundraiser for the State Police bagpipe band. Their hats and outerwear were all emblazoned with the NJSP emblem.

Helen is predeceased by her husband Joseph (2018); her brothers, John J., Jr., Robert and Edward; and, her sister, Myrtle. She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Joseph R. (Rick) and Eileen, and Kevin T. and Karen; grandchildren, William T. and Alyssa Fuentes, Jennifer L. and Ryan Ink; and, great-grandchildren, Lyric G. Fuentes and Logan M. Ink.

Helen and her husband Joe were true to their love for each other and faith, passing away two years apart on Good Friday. They are now together again in heaven, along with the family she grew up with.

Private Burial on Tuesday.
A "Celebration of life' will be scheduled at a later date.

Family was everything to Helen; and her sons are her legacy. They will always be a reminder of her humble, gentle ways. Although, her life was unexpectedly cut short, her wish to return to NJ came true. Helen will always be a Jersey girl....strong, kind, honest, smart, positive, accepting, flexible and courageous. We are blessed that Helen & Joe, Rick and Eileenie have been a close presence in our lives as we are a little bit better and happier as a result. Holidays will never be the same, but you’ll be in our hearts forever. Love, Joan & Joe

I will surely miss you Helen and our weekend chats talking about your week with Paulette, what you did, your lunches with Kathy and your shopping excursions. The holidays in Jersey won’t be the same without you. You always said you wanted to come back to NJ. I am sure you are dancing to Lawrence Welk’s music with Joe! There is another “Golden Girl” in heaven today. Rest in peace Helen and please watch over us and you are one of the special ones who went straight to Heaven!

Love,
Mary Campbell

Aunt Helen you will forever be missed! It was always such fun being in your presence. You always made us laugh, told wonderful stories, and had a smile on your face. You are now at peace in heaven with Uncle Joe. May you always dance with the angels! Until we meet again....
Love,
Melanie and Mike

I have so many wonderful memories of Mrs Fuentes at Eileen and Rick’s home. I was there for just about every holiday, and birthday - actually every major celebration for the past 16 years, and Mrs Fuentes was right there. She was always happy to be there. I can see her sitting in the wing back chair and just taking it all in. I would also see her at the New Jersey State Police Family Days and Pub Nites, where she would physically beam! She was so proud of her Ricky. In 2017, I was with Mr and Mrs Fuentes celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. When you saw them together, it was special. Mr. Fuentes was always right by her side. It was obvious, she was his girlfriend. Mrs. Fuentes passed on Good Friday. Two years after Mr. Fuentes did. I hope that Rick, Eileen, Maryellen and all of the Fuentes family feel as comforted as I do, knowing that Mr.and Mrs. Fuentes are together again on this day. Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother, mother in law, and friend. May God Bless her soul.

I will remember the telephone visits Helen and i shared and all the memories of wonderful holiday celebrations at Rick & Eileen's house Family was the most important thing in her life Helen was truly a special lady. in her quiet way she spoke volumes of how proud she and Joe were of their sons Rick and Kevin. She told me how wonderfully loving and thoughtful Eileen was to her. I know that she went straight to heaven and was thrilled to be with Joe again.MAy they sing and dance in heaven with the Angels forever. Love, Bree.
