  • I’ll surely miss Aunt Helen, Auntie, Godmother, dear friend. I’ve spent many weekends and vacations visiting her in Ossippee with her and “Unc”. She has always been there for me during good times and bad. Love you always, Susan

  • My Aunt Helen was a deeply sentimental soul. Many holidays were spent in her home. She never forgot to send a holiday card to my children. Halloween, Valentines, Easter, and of course Christmas. She opened her heart and her home so much that I spent many of my teenage years enjoying Ossipee, NH. Even my children share a fondness of Lake Chocorua from the years I shared it with them. I will forever miss the times with her and Unc. They are truly special to me.

  • We shared so many happy memories with Helen. She was a joy to be with. Missing so many now. There will be a great celebration in heaven with those wonderful people.
