Helen F. St. Peter

Helen F. (Ingraham) St. Peter, 84, of Taunton, formerly of Randolph and Milton, passed away on March 27, 2020, at the Residence at Five Corners in Easton, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Port Chester, New York, she was raised in Milton and attended Milton High School. She worked in the accounting department for New England Telephone for many years before retiring.

Helen was the primary caregiver for her husband Donald for 37 years during his struggle with Parkinson’s disease.

She was an avid golfer who enjoyed playing in a Women’s Golf League at Rockland Country Club. She was also a member of the New England Telephone Pioneers and a volunteer for the Senior Net Program at Massasoit Community College.

Beloved wife of the late Donald F. St. Peter, Helen was the mother of Joanne Nickerson and her husband Gary of Taunton and the late Brian F. St. Peter.

She was the sister of Joan Lynch and her husband William of Falmouth, Patricia Needham and her companion Bill Renison of Punta Gorda, Florida, and Mary Donoghue and her husband Thomas of North Fort Myers, Florida.

Loving grandmother of Sarah Riendeau and her husband Brett of Taunton and Ross Nickerson and his wife Krystal of Cedar Park, Texas, Helen is also survived by two great-grandchildren, Joshua and Tyler Riendeau.

Due to the current COVID-19 directives, a private graveside service was held at Milton Cemetery and a memorial Mass to celebrate Helen’s life will be held at a later date.

Helen’s family sends a special thank you to the nurses and staff at the Residence at Five Corners in Easton for the compassionate care they provided.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Helen’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.act.alz.org.
