Helen M. Giangreco beloved wife of well-known Burlington doctor, Anthony Giangreco, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday morning, May 21, 2022. She was 99 years old. Helen was born on August 30th 1922 and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She was a nurse at the Caledonian Hospital in Brooklyn New York. It was there that she met her future husband, Dr. Anthony Giangreco. They were married in 1945 and moved to Anthony’s home state of Massachusetts.
Helen loved to have fun, socialize, and travel. Maybe her secret to living to 99 years was that she was always young at heart and never wanted to be called a senior citizen. She loved to spend days going on adventures with her loved ones. She was also happy tending to vegetable and flower gardens or reading a good book. She had a good sense of humor and often shared her thoughts and viewpoints with others. She was blessed to have had good health up until recent years and be an important part in the lives of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
