She also leaves two grandchildren, Jeffery Erekson and Destiny Vermette. She was the proud Great-Grandmother of William and Anthony. Helen is also survived by her younger sister, Catherine Mizner and brothers, John and Jerome Lewandowski and many nieces and nephews. She is pre-deceased by her brother, Ronald Fields.

I was saddened to hear about the loss of your mother. I´m sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. I hope you feel surrounded by much love, as you keep memories of your mom close in your heart. Love, Allyson Manfredo

In the midst of the pain and grief of your loss, the memories you and your Mom made throughout your life will sustain you and bring you joy and peace. If not for the love and devotion you showed her, and the attention to her needs and wishes, these last few years wouldn't have been nearly as filled with love and contentment as you helped to make them. The love you both shared is everlasting so it seems fitting that, instead of flowers, which are beautiful but fleeting, we choose the suggested tree planting. While not with you, these trees will grow, provide shelter, safeguard the landscape, remove over 1 ton of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, and be a lasting testament to the person that she was. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. Sheila, Demian and Kali

Robin so saddened and sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. I know you were very close and will miss her dearly. It's tough I'm not going to lie. My mom passed last June and there are good days and bad days. You do get through it thinking ofall your memories and it helps you to smile and even laugh. Sending sympathies to you, Dave and your family. Hugs! Elise & Sean

Mumma outran Covid... but she couldn't outrun time. A tough old girl who always had a smart reply to anything you shared with her. She was going to use the Nurse's office as a bathroom last week. They told her it was not a bathroom, it was an office. Her response... "It will be when I am done with it!" You had to love her like she loved the blueberries I would bring her. She knew the difference between "the crappy South American ones" and the good ones from Maine". We will all miss her, but not like Robin will. You can sleep now Mumma
