She was really a lifelong resident of Cornwall, where she grew up and received her early education. She was graduated from Middlebury High School.

Helen never married or had children of her own, but loved hearing stories from her favorites; Gabe, Alex, Jason and “The Girls”, Kate, Audrey and Rachel.

She is survived by her cousin Nancy Kemp of Cornwall and many second cousins.  In her later years she was looked after by Brian Sperry & his wife Lorri.  She was predeceased by her brother; Gardner Sperry and many other family members.
