She was given the most wonderful care by her daughter, Kathy and her grandson, “my buddy”, John. She was born in Roxbury to the late William and Ida Sommerville. Helen attended St. Patrick’s High School and worked for many years for New England Telephone and The New England Life Insurance Company.
Her most important role was being a loving mother and homemaker. Helen was a woman of strong faith, enjoyed reading and could often be found dancing and singing at a family gathering. Helen was her happiest when surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Helen had a nurturing spirit for anyone and everyone who came into her life. Her life was totally devoted to her family, she will be sadly missed and forever cherished by all the lives she has touched.
