Helen was a beautiful woman and a kind and loving person, she especially loved children and stray animals. She was a soul that drew others toward her kindness and warmth. As a young girl she attended Woonsocket public schools and immediately thereafter went to work. She was a hard working woman all of her life. She worked for Coby Glass and Peter Pan Ice Cream for many years before becoming a homemaker and raising her five children. She was a devout catholic and attended church every day after which she would spend the rest of her day, tending to and caring for her grandchildren and her dog troubles.
Gone but never forgotten, Helen will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
