Helen loved playing cards with her friends, going to the casino, backyard barbecues, and her many trips to Reno to visit Charlotte and Mickey Forte.  Helen’s family meant the world to her and her most treasured moments were spent with her five beloved grandchildren.  Survivors include three children, Robert Forte and his wife Leslie of Monroe, Jo-Anne Forte of Florida and Roger Forte and his wife Jodi of Easton; five grandchildren, Zachary, Eric, Gianna, Jake and Cam; two sisters-in-law, Charlotte Forte of Nevada and Barbara Franchi of Connecticut; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Frank Morris; two sisters, Ann Hoydick and her husband Frank and Mary Moran; and two brothers-in-law, Mickey Forte and Joseph Franchi. Friends may call on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 from 9:15 am to 10:15 am at the Pistey Funeral Home, 2155 Main Street, Stratford.
