Helen K. Wescott, 88, died Monday, May 1, 2023, after a period of declining health. She was born in Abington, MA, the daughter of Russell and Sonja (Nilsson) Kennett. She grew up in Sherburn, MA and graduated from Dover High School in Massachusetts. Helen went on to earn her nursing degree, and finished her career caring for students as a nurse at Plymouth State University, retiring in 2000.
Helen and her late husband Fred raised their family in Japan, Marlborough, CT, Rochester, MA, and Bridgewater, NH. They were an avid skiing family and were known to spend much of their winter time on the slopes. Helen would fill her time in fairer weather walking and hiking. Being in her kitchen was a favorite pastime, cooking to share her dishes with others. She spent her last years in the Waterville area enjoying the beauty of the white mountains.
