Helen E. Marsh, 84, passed away March 26, 2021, at Genesis of Lebanon, NH, after a brief illness.
Helen was born January 27, 1937, to M. Katherine Winn and Gilman T. Woodbury. She graduated in 1954 from Stevens High School in Claremont, NH. In 1955, Helen married Clifton R. Marsh. They made their home in Meriden, where they raised their four children. In 1972, Helen began working side by side with Clifton and their three sons at Marsh Construction, as bookkeeper, consulting with clients and drafting house plans. She also raised a large vegetable garden and helped with horse chores with her daughter. She loved hay season, driving the truck while all the kids loaded the hay into the large trailer. Helen loved being a wife and Mom, gathering all the kids together to pick fresh berries or harvesting the garden for canning goods for winter. She especially loved when her grandchildren started arriving. She was involved in every event, from motocross to horse shows. Christmas was her favorite time of year, she loved having the family all together.
Helen was predeceased by two brothers, David Woodbury and Frank Woodbury.
She is survived by Clifton, her husband of 66 years; her children, Jeff and his wife Robin Marsh; Jill and her husband Steve Tassinari; Todd and his wife Michelle Marsh; and Jody Marsh; grandchildren, Kerry Marsh Foley, Abigale Marsh, Emily Tassinari Noble Anna Tassinari, Travis Marsh, Trevor Marsh, Jacob Marsh and Ashlyn (great grandchild), Justin Marsh and Theodore Roy (great grandchild); her brothers, James Woodbury and Bob Woodbury; and her sisters, Violet Skrocki, Sandra Supry and Patricia Moquin.
