Helen Zak Obituary

HELEN (nee TASCHLER) ZAK, 100, was met at Heaven’s Gate by her husband, Albert
on December 21, 2022.
Helen was born on January 4, 1922 in Passaic, New Jersey to Albert and Rose (nee Magdits) Taschler, who were recent immigrants from Austria. She grew up in Clifton and attended Holy Trinity School. Helen enjoyed bowling, dancing and listening to big bands in New York City as a young woman.
On February 9 of 1952, Helen married Albert Zak and then newlyweds immediately relocated to Alhambra, California where their daughter, Kathleen, was born a year later. After moving to North Carolina, their son, Richard, was born. The family moved to Virginia and back to North Carolina where her daughter, Lorraine, was born. When the family returned to New Jersey a few years later, their son, Robert, was born. As their children grew up, Helen worked for a number of years at Two Guys Department Store in Kearny with her husband who was the manager of the camera department. She retired just before their 25th wedding anniversary to take an extended trip to Europe with Albert. Helen continued to live in Clifton where she was the oldest parishioner at Sacred Heart Church. She is a beloved grandmother of 9 grandchildren, 2 great
grandchildren and one great great grandson.
