    Our condolences to Helen’s family and many friends.
    Helen brought friendship, joy, and many stories to her friends and neighbors at Rockingham Glen and she will always be missed. She was a faithful woman to God and Church, and she bore her sufferings with grace and strength. Rest in peace, Helen.

    So sorry for your loss. Helen was an active member in Easern Star and she also belonged to our bowling group for years when we were members of Roslindale Chapter. She certainly lived a good life and to reach 102 is certainly amazing. It’s the great German genes, that’s for sure! Bless you Helen, and may you rest in peace.
