Life Story for Helen Petz

Helen S. Petz, Westfield, New Jersey
July 8, 2018

Born in Czechoslovakia, Helen S. Petz came to the US and was lovingly raised and well-educated by Tessie and Vincent Palazzo of Westfield. She studied piano, was an avid reader and devoted to Holy Trinity Church where she was educated and graduated. She was an intelligent and modern woman, ahead of her time. Helen worked on Wall Street at the firm of J. Henry Schroder. In 1951 she married Edward G. Petz, and remained married for almost 65 years until his passing in 2015.

Very active with the American Red Cross, she volunteered over 2500 hours as a Gray Lady serving our veterans at Lyons VA hospital. After raising her two daughters, she went to work at AT&T until she retired. A strong advocate of education, she continued her studies in art history and received her degree from Union County Community College.
She enjoyed thoughtful conversation and traveling around the world learning about new countries. She always found a way to compliment a stranger or good friend.

She died on July 8, as she lived: Independent and surrounded by her family. She will be remembered for her intelligence, her intensity, and her devotion to the lucky few that she loved.

Helen is survived by her two daughters, Gail Petz, and her husband James Messina, Westfield, and Judy Petz, and her husband, Keith LiGreci, British Virgin Islands.

Viewing will be held at Dooley Colonial Home, 556 Westfield Ave., Westfield on Wedneday, July 11th from 4-6PM. A Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, July 12th at 10AM at Holy Trinity R.C. Church, Westfield. Entombment will follow at The Chapels at Short Hills in Millburn.
Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to Holy Trinity School, Westfield.
