— TROY — Helen Frances Carman, 89, of Troy, formerly a longtime resident of Weed Hill Road, Luthers Mills, Burlington Township, passed away early Saturday morning, May 3, 2014, at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Jan. 1, 1925, in North Towanda Township, a daughter of the late Thomas and Laura (Corson) Driscoll.

In her youth, she attended St. Agnes School in Towanda.

Helen was employed as a certified nursing assistant at the Bradford County Manor in West Burlington Township for 18 years. She later was employed with the custodial department of GTE Sylvania in Towanda for several years and provided in-home care for various families in the area as well.

Helen was a member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Towanda, the church Pastoral Out-Reach Committee and the Bradford County Republican Women.

Helen loved spending time with her family and will be fondly remembered for her sense of humor. She also loved nature, especially bird watching, animals, flowers and gardening.

Surviving are her children, three sons and daughters-in-law, Ralph and Donna Carman, of North Towanda, Ronald and Donna Carman, of Canton, and John “Jack” and Karen Carman, of Northumberland; one daughter and son-in-law, Ann Marie and Wes Hodge, of Rome Township; two sisters and one brother-in-law, Sylvia Hilfiger, of Towanda, and Mary and Jack Kelly, of Apalachin, N.Y.; one sister-in-law, Betty Driscoll; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husbands, Ralph Vanderpool, who was killed in action during World War II in 1945, and Donald Carman, in 1975; one son, Richard Carman, in 2013; and one brother, Thomas J. Driscoll, in 1991.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. today in Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Third Street, Towanda, with the Rev. Edward Michelini as celebrant.

Interment will follow in Bradford County Memorial Park, Luthers Mills.

The family suggests that contributions in Helen’s memory be made to the Bradford County Humane Society, P.O. Box 179, Ulster, PA 18850, or to St. Agnes School, 102 Third St., Towanda, PA 18848, or to the National Down Syndrome Society, 666 Broadway, Eighth Floor, New York, NY 10012.
