To the Editor:

This is a tribute to Helene Groman who served as secretary of the Citizens Property Owners Association. Helene died on Dec. 27, 2016 at the age of 91.

I have known her over 50 years. Her tireless efforts will long be remembered by C.P.O.A. and as a delegate to the Federation of Connecticut Taxpayers Association; Helene and I were New Britain delegates. As a buddy, she and I attended school board meetings, council meetings and Charter Revision meetings, etc. She was always available, honest and trustworthy. She was a true friend and I and our organization will sorely miss her.

She was also a member of St. Matthew’s Church and I remember her delicious Christmas cookies at the Holiday Fair and other activities; she was active in her church.

Helene, you were special and will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace.
