Born in Galway, Ireland to Dennis and Ellie Garvey O’Callaghan, Helen fondly remembered her younger days when she was an active child who enjoyed hurling, tennis, and badminton. After traveling Europe and Canada, Helen moved to the United States where she met the love of her life, Joe Davoren, at a dance. During their life together, Helen was a longtime member of the Women’s Guild at Our Lady of Grace Church and she enjoyed dancing, reading, sewing, and playing Bridge with her card club group. Helen enjoyed being with her family which she shared unconditional love, unmatched by many. Helen spent her last few days with her family and friends before joining her husband in heaven where they’ll continue their dancing together.
