Helen S. Fliss passed away on December 11, 2022, at 103 years of age. Helen was born June 19, 1919, to Agnes (Bodek) and Felix Skrocki in Wallington, NJ. She married Frank Fliss in 1941 and after he completed service in WWII, they settled in Utica, NY. They built a new home on Grandview Ave in 1951 where they raised their daughters and lived together for 75 years. A lifelong member of Holy Trinity Church, Helen belonged to the Westside Senior Center and loved singing in the chorale group. She is survived by her daughters, Chris (Peter) Kogut and Diane (Paul) McGuinnes; four grandchildren, Kevin, Sue, Keith, and Carrie, four great-grandchildren, Ben, Alec, Zach, and Maddy, one great-great-granddaughter, Maya as well as many dear nieces, cousins, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Frank (2005), brothers, Emil, Edward and Matt Skrocki and sisters, Wanda Moskal and Stella Jaretsky and her BFF, Sadie Skrocki. Helen naturally embraced a “green” lifestyle well before it became the right thing to do. She repurposed, recycled, or composted everything. She was an organic gardener her whole life raising delicious vegetables and beautiful flowers. Helen moved to St. John’s Meadows in Rochester in 2013 to be closer to her daughter Chris. There she participated in Qi Gong classes, singing group, bingo, Scrabble, and daily visits with her new friends. She lived independently there until age 100 when she moved to St. John’s Home. Relatives and friends are invited and may call Saturday, December 17, 2022, from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10 a.m. Interment will be in Holy Trinity Cemetery.
