Helen Miller

Helen G. Miller, 96, of Hopkinton passed peacefully at home on Feb. 19. She was predeceased by her high school sweetheart and husband, Melvin E Miller, a DJ and program manager at WMEX, WEEI and WRKO in Boston.

She was born in Worcester and educated in the Holden school system, as the daughter of Addie P. and John R. Wentworth of Holden and younger sister to Jane Neale of Jefferson. She completed her schooling at the Worcester Art Museum and became an accomplished artist on her own, working in both oils and pastels, as well as a master of many craft projects and greeting card designs. She excelled as a preschool art teacher in Framingham and, after moving to Hopkinton in 1979, became one of the founding members of Baypath Humane Society. She was admired by friends and family for her tenacious and energetic spirit, being a gym member into her 90s, and considered a generous and thoughtful friend to everyone she encountered.

She leaves her only daughter, Holly G. Miller, and many of Holly’s girlfriends that she considered her adopted daughters. She was always in the mix of boisterous conversations and the sharing of their wanderlust adventures, and always enjoyed reviewing maps and photos although she, herself, preferred to stay at home with her beloved Yorkies and cats. She was both a devotee of the Patriots and Celtics and had an endless curiosity to research everything she came across in nature.

There are no services planned, but a joyful open house and celebration of her life will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to be made to Baypath Humane Society, 500 Legacy Farms North Road, Hopkinton, MA 01748.

Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of the Pickering & Son Westborough Funeral Home.
