Helen Joanna Landucci

October 21, 1928 ~ July 2, 2022 (age 93) 93 Years Old


Helen Karam Landucci was born October 21, 1928, in Utica, N.Y. to Nazira Hobika and Michael

D. Karam. Growing up in her Lebanese family some of her many memories included watching

her father and uncle write Arabic, caring for her family when they were sick, and watching her

mother cook their delicious cultural foods. She was fluent in Arabic and English. Her family

moved to Bakersfield, CA when she was a young teen. Later, she was a devoted wife, mother,

volunteer, and Cub Scout den mother. She was married for 68 years to Freddie Landucci whom

she loved dearly. She was raised in the Catholic church. She and her husband Freddie were

members and attended St. Joseph's Church in Bakersfield for many years. In the winter of 2020

she moved to Porterville, CA where she joined St. John's Anglican Church. She worked as a

Pink Lady volunteer for 26yrs at Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield where she helped patients,

healthcare workers and visitors. Helen always loved volunteering and appreciated the people

with whom she worked. She loved traveling with her husband and children taking them on fun

adventures all around California especially Disneyland. Later, she enjoyed traveling with Freddie

and friends to Las Vegas and Laughlin, NV. We will remember her wonderful homemade

lebanese dishes. We will miss her fearlessness, humor, love, and pride towards her family.

Helen is predeceased by her parents, four brothers (George, Joseph, John, & Louis), her

husband, Freddie L. Landucci, and her son, Mark S. Landucci. She is survived by her children,

Janice Morris (David), Fred Landucci (Allison), Steven Landucci (Laura), and daughter-in-law
