Helen H. Tarallo, who worked in real estate sales for nearly 50 years, died of a stroke Monday at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. She was 92 and had worked until last year.
She was born Helen Theresa Herman and raised in East Baltimore. She was a graduate of the old St. Elizabeth's Business School.
During World War II, she worked in the accounting department of the former Glenn L. Martin Co. in Middle River.
A longtime resident of the Hampton neighborhood of Baltimore County, she earned her real estate license and began working in 1960 for John Q. Anderson. Several years later, she went to work for Grempler Realty Inc.
At her retirement last year, she was selling real estate for Long & Foster in the company's Towson office.
"She was a lifelong member of the Million Dollar Club and Peak Producers Club," said her daughter, Mary Jo Tarallo of Washington.
A resident of Mercy Ridge Retirement Community in Timonium, she enjoyed attending the theater, opera and concerts of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She was a longtime member of the Baltimore Opera Guild and the Woman's Auxiliary of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
Mrs. Tarallo was a communicant of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, at Baltimore and Ware avenues in Towson, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
Also surviving are her husband of 60 years, D. Richard Tarallo, a retired Martin Marietta industrial engineer; a brother, Albert J. Herman of Baltimore; and many nieces and nephews.
