Helen Yourkowski, 90, of Throop, passed away on Thursday, December 31, 2020.  She was preceded in death by her husband, John Yourkowski.

Born in Jessup, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Helen Zukusky Benderovich.  Before retiring, she first worked in the garment industry including at Barbizon for more than 25 years.  Later, she worked at Supermarket Services.  She was a member of Blessed Sacrament Parish, at St. Anthony’s Church, Throop.

For many years, she enjoyed attending the Throop Civic Center and the Dunmore Senior Center.  She was a hardworking woman and a loving mother devoted to her family.  Her family will always remember the effort and care she put into holiday celebrations especially Christmas Eve dinner.  She always made room at the table for guests.  Helen enjoyed cooking and baking and would be sure to bake nut and poppy seed rolls and cookies for family and friends during the holidays.  She will be deeply missed.

She is survived by a son, John Jr., Throop; her daughter, Kathy Dales, and husband, Raymond, Glassboro, NJ; a sister, Cecelia Coyer; and nieces and nephews.

Her family would like to thank Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their care and compassion.
