MARLBORO – HELEN F. PRIAM passed away on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at Sunrise Assisted Living in Marlboro. She had just celebrated her 100th birthday on February 7th with family, Caregivers, and Residents of Sunrise.

Born in Hanover, Pennsylvania, to Stanley and Josephine (née Brostoski) Plominski.  As a teen she moved to Brooklyn, NY. She later met and fell in love with her husband, Jim. They were married and moved to Edison, NJ. After having two daughters, they bought their first home in Spotswood, NJ, and she resided there for 74 years.

We all received afghans and beautiful sweaters.
