Helen M. (Komorowski) Mysliwy, 104, passed away Friday, January 29, surrounded by her loving family and devoted caregiver, Sophie. Born in Holyoke, July 13, 1916, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Bertha (Ostrowski) Komorowski. Helen was a graduate of Holyoke High School and owned and operated the Park Main Travel Agency with her husband Ted for many years in Wilbraham. Helen’s life centered on faith, family, and friendship. She was a devout Catholic and was a communicant of St. Cecilia Church where she participated in many activities. With her lifelong love of music, she served many years as the unofficial senior member of the Choir, building lasting friendships. Helen was also a member of the Women’s Club, Senior Connection, Spiritual Growth Group, and often volunteered to support the Survival Center. She began taking organ lessons in her eighties and enjoyed the many friendships she built at Falcetti Music. The devotion of her dear friends Yvette and Sophie, other caregivers, her physician Dr. Shaukat Matin, and the regular visits of Sr. Mary McCue and the Choir’s “Helen’s Angels,” added so much to her happiness and quality of life, especially in her later years. Helen will be remembered for her strength, grace, and ready wit. For all who knew and loved her, she will forever be an example of how to lead a rich and rewarding life, at any age. Her beloved husband, Thaddeus “Ted” Mysliwy died in 1996. She leaves her beloved daughters, Linda Conlin and her husband Joseph of Cherry Hill, NJ and Susan Remotti and her husband Louis of Windsor, CT, her beloved granddaughter, Michele Helene Cavalieri (Kimberley), many nieces and nephews, including Robert Komorowski.
