Obituary for Helen Humphreys

Helen Humphreys of Moorestown, NJ, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on April 22, 2017. She was 87. Loving sister of W. Jared Humphreys of Vista, CA and the late Ralph K. Humphreys. Dear sister in-law of Laura Humphreys of Cherry Hill, NJ. Devoted aunt to Kathryn Kotowski (Ralph) of Lakeside, CA; William J. Humpheys (Karen) of Mission Viejo, CA; Elizabeth H. Beatty (Jason Miller) of Cherry Hill, NJ; James Humphreys (Sabrina) of Breckenridge, CO and Rebecca H. Terrell (Dan) of Schnecksville, PA.

A lifelong resident of Teaneck, Helen had deep roots in the community. She was active in the tenants’ organization of Cedar Lane Gardens where she lived for many years before buying her home on Fort Lee Road in 1985. As a homeowner, Helen spent a lot of time in her yard tending to her gardens. She was a familiar, friendly face to people walking past her home and considered her neighbors to be an extension of her family. Helen’s memory is alive and well through the many people whose lives she touched. As a master gardener, she was very active with the Garden Club of Teaneck and could often be found at her bench in the greenhouse. Helen enjoyed sharing her passion for horticulture with the children of the Hawthorne School where she volunteered as part of the Greenhouse Children’s Program. She looked forward to spending time in the classrooms each spring and the children often remembered her from one year to the next. Her greatest legacy, however, lives on through her nieces and nephews with whom she shared her passion for travel. Helen literally “gave them world” - offering each one an overseas adventure during their early teen years. Each trip included family history in England and Wales as well as an exciting destination of her choice. Helen visited many countries including Belgium, Holland, and Greece but her most memorable trip was an African safari with her niece and nephew. Having traveled the world, her passports paint a picture of a life well lived.
