She was born in Mahanoy Plane in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania to Mary and Ralph Cartwright. Helen moved to Philadelphia at the age of 14. After her schooling, she worked in retail at Strawbridge and Clothier where she met her future husband. She married Harry Thompson in 1950 and after a few years moved to Bellmawr, New Jersey where they raised three children. Helen was devoted to her husband for more than 58 years and created a loving environment for her children and grandchildren. Helen stayed home and raised her children. When her kids were grown, she worked in the financial department at Clover. In addition to her family, she was passionate about music and dancing. She loved going to the casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Helen could play penny and nickel machines all day long. She also loved to travel with family and friends. Both her and her husband were avid sports fans, and she especially loved the Flyers. Although Helen was challenged by Alzheimer’s disease, she was always happy to interact with people, and she was especially soothed by listening to music. She was even in the Brookdale resident’s choir. She loved to sing and dance, and she was always encouraging other residents and staff to join her. Her dancing put a smile on everyone’s face. Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Harry, her son Edward, her mother, Mary, her father, Ralph, and her sister Betty Kelly. She is survived by her daughters Linda St.Pierre (Hal) of Deptford, New Jersey and Joan McCoy (Barney) of Seattle, Washington.
