Obituary for Helen Pietal (Buonocore)

GRAFTON/WESTBOROUGH: It is with great sorrow that we report the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and cioci.

Helen “Buonocore” Pietal died peacefully on April 18 at Whitney Place, Westborough, Massachusetts. She shared her last day on earth with family and the caring staff of Whitney Place and Salmon Hospice. Before moving to Westborough, Helen and her husband lived in North Grafton, Massachusetts for almost 50 years.

Helen is survived by her husband Henry J. Pietal Sr, 3 children and their spouses, Maryanna and Michael Arsenault of Wells, Maine; Henry and Carol “Beauregard” Pietal of Auburn, Massachusetts, and Paul and Lynn “Desmarais” Pietal of Sharon, Massachusetts. Eight (8) grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren.

Helen was born on March 5, 1927 in Jersey City, New Jersey to Renato and Elizabeth “Russo” Buonocore. Helen’s parents immigrated to the US from Italy at the turn of the 20th Century. Helen was a life-long learner holding varied positions including Army Quartermaster WWII, sales clerk, short order cook, occupational therapy assistant, and partner in Simple Enough, a natural food store in Westborough, Massachusetts. She traveled extensively and enjoyed the many wonders of the world.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, April 23rd at Roney Funeral Home in North Grafton at 11:00 am with burial at Pine Grove Cemetery at 11:45 am, followed by a luncheon. All are welcome to gather Helen's family from 9:30-11am prior to her Celebration of Life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice of Southern Maine, 180 US Route One
Scarborough, ME 04074.

The family applauds and thanks the staff of Whitney Place with emphasis on the gentle and caring PCAs, as well as Salmon Home Health and Hospice. A Book of Memories to share a memory of Helen is available online at:
