Helen was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She also loved her family and we loved her. We also loved her “famous” baked beans and delicious apple pie. One of her favorite places to travel was Hawaii, but a special place in her heart was for Old Orchard Beach, Maine, because she was with family. For more than 50 years summertime meant OOB.
She loved caring for her home, painting, crocheting, and made beautiful afghans. Helen was a member of St Joseph’s Church in North Brookfield MA and a devout Catholic. The family wished to extend their sincere “thanks” to Hospice and Quaboag Rehab and Skilled Care Center of West Brookfeld for their wonderful card and kindness.
