  Helen Gullo, 90, of Emerson, Ohio, passed away April 17, 2020 surrounded by family at Gables Care Center, Hopedale.

  She was born in Dun Glen, Ohio on October 8, 1929, a daughter of the late Stanley and Mary Gazda Zelek.

  In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband George F. Gullo; her son George “Zeb” Gullo; siblings Mary Cameron Matusik, Stanley, Walter “Babe”, Joseph and Frank Zelek.

  Helen is survived her son Jeffery “Charlie” Gullo and his wife Helen, daughter Christine Finnicum, seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

  Words cannot describe what a wonderful and loving person she was. She will be missed deeply. Private services were held by the family.

  Helen was a homemaker and she did work at the Colerain IGA in the deli department for a short time. She made the best chocolate chip cookies around!  The best cook in the whole world and if you left the table hungry, that was your fault. She could can anything and made the best canned peppers. Her beautiful flowers were something else!  She had flowers planted everywhere. She loved her family with all her heart and was always there to help with anything you needed.  We all miss her so much.

The family is being assisted by Borkoski Funeral Home, 60 South Bridge Street, Adena, Ohio.    Offer online condolences for the family at www.borkoskifuneral.com
