Helen Belica Danberry passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, January 23, 2020. She was 73.
Helen was the beloved wife of David Danberry Jr. for 53 years.
Born in Austria, she was the daughter to the late Stanley and Eugenia Belica, and sister to the late George Belica. She graduated from Central High School of Hopewell Township.
Helen was a home-maker, and she created a welcoming home where the family met for meals, Jeopardy, cards, and conversations. She loved to cook for the family, making sure everyone had something that they liked best to eat. She made custom crocheted blankets for the family. She loved going to the casinos for the slots, and even participated in a few official poker tournaments. She liked to bowl, and was even featured on TV, winning some cash from the tournaments. She loved to read, write poetry, watch the hummingbirds in her flowers, chase away the squirrels from the birdfeeders, look through cookbooks, craft different projects, go gem mining, and watch (and order from) QVC. Helen excelled at being a wife, a mom, a grandma/mom-mom, and great-grandma. She would watch the grandchildren at their various activities, host Thursday night family dinners with group Jeopardy after, and feed Nala people-food on the sly.
In addition to her husband, Helen is survived by her loving children; David Danberry III (Tracy), Robert Danberry, and Pamela Oxenford (Dave), as well as her 6 grandchildren; Aaron Oxenford (Danielle), Tori Stuart (Jeff), Jon Oxenford, Alyx Danberry, Tanner Danberry and Sammy Danberry, her 2 great-grandchildren Aiden and Arielle, one additional great-grandchild on the way, her brother Peter Belica, her sister Eugenia Pierce (Allen), her tail-wagging grand-dog Nala, and many nieces and nephews.
