Helen Hilbert
Poet
Helen Hilbert, who died in mid September, was one of the Poster Project’s most eager participants. She was a regular contributor of haiku to The Syracuse New Times annual Syr-Haikus contest and generous with her poetry on a number of other fronts.

She wrote birthday and get well poems for friends and family. She wrote and published a book of children’s poetry, “Harvey The Happy Halibut and Other Tales.” And she played Mother Goose, reciting poetry and Mosther Goose stories, at the Skaneateles Dickens Festival and the Plainville Turkey Farm. She lived in Liverpool.

In early September, failing health put her at Saint Joseph’s Hospital. She had a friend mail in her haiku submissions—a total of 11—shortly before she died.
