Obituary

HELEN MUSENGO (nee Pece), age 100. Beloved wife of the late Ralph J. Musengo; dearest mother of Fred (wife Julia), Michael A. D.D.S., Maj. James D., U.S.A.R. and the late Ralph J. Musengo Jr.; loving grandmother of Francesca, Theresa Kapelanczyk (Patrick) and Melina; dear sister of the late Irma Pece; cherished aunt and great-aunt.
Helen was always a calm and reliable presence for her family and her extended family, including in-laws and many family friends. Many nieces and a nephew looked to her as “the Aunt”. Her four sons and her loving husband of 60 years, Ralph Musengo, thought of her as the center of the family.
Although opportunities were limited when she was young, she worked as a secretary until beginning a family in 1946. She valued education and artistic and intellectual pursuits, and exposed her children to those areas. In her later years, she always read, worked crosswords, held her own watching “Jeopardy!”, and for many years attended the Cleveland Opera.
As a lifelong Cleveland Indians fan, she is one of few who have seen the team play at three major league venues in Cleveland, from the 1920s (League Park) to the 1990s (then Jacobs Field). She also took pride in the Cavaliers finally bringing an NBA Championship to her hometown, especially since the team was led by her favorite player, LeBron James, a self-described “kid from Akron”, who rose from humble origins, much like her own.
She will be missed, but still loved, by many.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions in memory of Helen to the Hospice of the Western Reserve, 17876 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland, OH 44110 or the Heights Schools Foundation F.B.O. Ralph Musengo Memorial Scholarship Fund, 2155 Miramar Blvd., University Hts., OH 44118.
