VANCZA – Helen Margaret Vancza, age 73, beloved wife and mother, and resident of
Easton (previously of Fairfield), passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 30, 2017,
at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. She was born in Bridgeport, Conn., the
daughter of the late Elizabeth (Bette) and Frank Scilagyi. Helen was a member of Notre
Dame of Easton Catholic Church for over thirty years and was a role model of Christian
faith and love. Prior to retirement, she worked as a medical billing and coding specialist,
most recently at 3030 Park Health Center. Helen was a hard-working woman dedicated
to putting the needs of others before her own. She will be most remembered as a loving
and nurturing mother, devoted spouse, fun-loving baby sister, and caring best friend. Her
laugh and smile were contagious, but her love of music, piano playing, and melodious
voice will live on in our hearts forever. Helen is survived by her husband of 49 years,
John Vancza of Easton; her two daughters, Valerie Vancza and her husband, Edward
Lucas, of Newtown, and Elizabeth Vancza of Easton; a brother-in-law, Kurt Engel of
Bridgeport; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her two sisters
Betty Engel and Frances Temple. Funeral services will take place on Tuesday, September
, at 1 pm at The Larson Funeral Home, 2496 North Ave, Bridgeport. Interment will be
private. Friends may greet the family on Tuesday from 11 am until the time of service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association
