Leominster – Helen L. (Kamila) Koroskenyi, 85, entered into the joy of the Lord on Sunday, July 4, 2021 at Life Care Center in Leominster, MA. Helen was born June 11, 1936 in Gardner, MA, the daughter of Friedolf and Allie (Eskola) Kamila.
She married the love of her life at age 16 and raised five children while living in the bustle of New York City before moving to her beloved family property, “The Farm”, in Westminster, MA. She later moved to Fitchburg, MA and owned one of the first consignment stores in the area, “The Wardrobe Exchange & Kid Stuff”. Being good with numbers, she enjoyed volunteering her bookkeeping services to Christian Life Center in downtown Leominster, MA where she was a founding member. She was also very creative and always thinking about her next crafting project. Above all she found the most joy spending time with her children and grandchildren, often traveling around the country to spend vacations with them. She was known to her grandchildren as Scooter Grandma because she buzzed around town on her red mobility scooter, getting her groceries and checking out library books. She was loving, friendly and quick to accept others, always making them feel as loved as family. A stroke six years ago prevented her from enjoying the last years of her life the way she wanted, but she was patient, pleasant and kind regardless of her circumstances, with a good sense of humor and a ready smile. She loved the Lord and had the hope of heaven. She will be missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing her.
She leaves behind her three sons, James Koroskenyi and his wife Kathy of Pittsburgh, PA, Rev Steven Koroskenyi and his wife Rev Robin Koroskenyi of Leominster, MA, Thomas Koroskenyi and his wife Lisa of Salisbury, NC, and her two daughters Alexi Koroskenyi of Leominster, MA, and Tira Gilchrest and her husband Peter of Lunenburg, MA. She also leaves behind 14 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, whom she cherished, as well as her sister, and beloved friend, Mary Ann Lambert of Palmetto, FL, and several nephews. She was predeceased by her grandson, Robert Williams and her sister Evelyn Schultz.
A calling hour will be held Saturday, July 10, from 9:00 to 10:00 A.M. at Richardson Funeral Home. The funeral will follow at 10:00 A.M. in the funeral home. Burial will follow in Woodside Cemetery in Westminster.
