Helen R. Viercinski Lukachko, 88, of Taylor, entered eternal rest Wednesday, December 11, at Mountain View Care Center. She is survived by her loving husband Paul of 67 years who was by her side until the very end of their love story.
Born August 16, 1931 in Old Forge, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Julia Borinski Viercinski. She was a graduate of Taylor High School, Class of 1948. It was love at first sight for Paul and Helen, meeting at Taylor High School and sharing a love that endured for 73 years. Helen worked in the garment industry and retired from Heritage Children Daycare Center, where she provided loving care and nurturing. She was a lifelong member of St. Michaels Roman Catholic Church, Old Forge, until its closure. Throughout the years, Helen enjoyed sewing, especially making clothing and drapery. She was proud of her polish heritage and was excellent at creating many ethic dishes.
The Lukachko Family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the staff of Mountain View Care Center, Bella Bay, for their care and comfort they provided to them during this most difficult time.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Helen Morohovech, Taylor and a brother, Stanley Viercinski and wife, Marion, Old Forge; her grand puppy, Izzy, who brought her much joy the past few years; nieces and nephews.
