Helen Turturici

February 20, 1929 - January 14, 2018

Helen Lena Turturici entered into eternal rest on Sunday, January 14, 2018.
During her 88 years, she touched many lives with her wise and caring ways. She was an amazing daughter, wife, sister, Mom, and Nani. She loved spending time with her family and friends around the kitchen table and on the golf course. She also enjoyed reading, puzzles, playing cards, and bowling.
Helen was born to Gus and Lena Albo in Berkeley and graduated from Berkeley High School. Following graduation, she worked as a bookkeeper. Helen met her husband Bennie and they built their life and family together in San Jose. Helen and Bennie retired to Hollister in 1998 to live and play golf on Ridgemark Golf Course.
Helen is survived by her loving children David, Douglas, and Carolyn (Spain); caring son-in-law Bill; adoring granddaughter Samantha; dear sister-in-law Marie (Romero); and many cherished nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her devoted husband Bennie in 2014.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your favorite charity or to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
A memorial mass will be held for Helen at St. Christopher Parish in San Jose on Friday, February 2 at 10:30am.
