Helen was born in Campbell, Ohio on November 9th, 1935, a daughter of the late Catherine (Garchar) and Joseph Sharshan. She attended Saint Elizabeth School in Campbell, OH, and Campbell Memorial High School. Ms Sharshan went on to work for the Penn-Ohio Towel Supply Company for many years.

A woman committed to her faith, Helen was a member of Saint Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church, where she enjoyed teaching CCD with her niece, Kathy.
