Campbell…Helen (Homulos) Korechko, born on June 29, 1926, made a peaceful journey home to the God she loved and worshiped her entire life at the age of 95, on October 6, 2021, at home, with her family by her side.  Funeral services will be held Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at St. John Russian Orthodox Church, with Fr. Andrew Nelko officiating.

Helen was a lifelong member of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Campbell.  She married Joseph Korechko on November 6, 1948.  They were married 45 years before his passing on February 21, 1994.

She enjoyed traveling on four Continents and many places in the United States and Canada.   Helen was a member of The Sisterhood, Ladies Altar Society, and a Prosfora Baker. Her other hobbies included her love for baking and cooking.

Helen leaves to cherish her memories her five daughters, JoAnn Sirilla, Patricia Pethtel, Diane (George) Caban, Joyce (Dominic) Centofanti, and Jaclyn (Terrill) Blake; grandchildren Christine (Frank) Phillips, George Joseph Caban, Dominic Centofanti, Michael (Britney) Caban, Ian (Rachel) Pethtel, Phillip Centofanti, Daniel Centofanti, Stacy (Vince) Donofrio, and Dr. Rachel (Jordan) Tsvetanoff.

She was also preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Margaret (Robert) Smrek, Irene Homulos, Mary (Mike) Zackasee and Michael (Margaret) Homulos; and sons-in-law, Joseph Sirilla, and Larry Pethtel.

The family would like to thank Fr. Andrew Nelko for his constant and faithful support. We would also like to thank SouthernCare Hospice, especially, Jason, Liz and Jennifer for their caring compassion.
