She was the beloved wife of the late retired Mansfield Police Sergeant Vincent A. Guerrini, Sr., to whom she was wed for sixty-eight years at the time of his death on February 17, 2022.

A resident of Mansfield for the past sixty-eight years, Helen was a communicant of Saint Mary’s Church in Mansfield. She was an avid reader, enjoyed bowling, dancing, winter months spent in beautiful Fort Myers, Florida and relaxing at the beach. She was an excellent cook and Sunday dinners, with family around her, were always a special occasion.

Guerrini and his wife Julie of Foxborough, JoAnn Guerrini and her partner Jack Keating of West Yarmouth and Brenda A. Varney and her husband Kevin of Oxford. She was the cherished grandmother of Kyla, Kyle, Elizabeth, Victoria and Isabella and the great grandmother of Colton James.
