Helen M. Mancini

Helen Marie Mancini, age 94, of Wilmington, DE passed away on Monday, November 21, 2022.

Helen was born in Wilmington, daughter of the late James Scott and Rosanna Francis Jameson. She attended Brown Vocational High School for hairdressing. Later in life, Helen worked for the State of Delaware in the public schools’ food services for 30 years. She was one of the “lunch ladies” first at Lombardy Elementary and then Brandywine High School.

Helen was a wonderful homemaker and cook, known for her tremendous Sunday dinners, Italian cookies and her potato salad. This was her weekly labor of love and as the family grew, her talents were shared with her grandchildren. She loved crossword puzzles, the Hallmark channel, dining out and shopping for the perfect gift. She was a tireless and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She touched everyone she met with her kindness and sweet demeanor.

In addition to her parents, Helen is predeceased by her husband Dominick A. Mancini. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Mancini Meany (Bruce Jewett), son Carl J. Mancini (Kendra) and son James Mancini (Christine); her seven grandchildren, Michelle (Michael), Leslie (Joseph), Renzo, Capri, Steven (Ali), Carlo, and Lauren (Joseph); and her seven great-grandchildren, Dominick, Molly, Lucas, Noah, Joey, Sammy, and Leo. She is also survived by her sister, Beverly Jamison.

    Linda, Carl and Jim, When I think of growing up in Fairfax, your Mom's smile, laugh and kindness are such an important part of those fond memories. Please know we are thinking about you and your family as you celebrate her life.

    It's an honor to have known Mrs. Mancini. She was truly a very kind, special lady. It has been many years since I have last seen her; but I will always remember her kindness. I pray that God will comfort the Mancini family. Thus, knowing Carl, you know he had to have a great mother. I am sure she has received a great welcome home from our Lord and Savior, "Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant."
