Helen A. (Novack) Anderson,91, of Uxbridge, MA passed away on August 4, 2017. She was born October 13, 1925 in Uxbridge the daughter of the late Joseph and Josephine (Ziemba) Novack. Helen was a lifelong resident of Uxbridge and was a graduate of Uxbridge High School and Becker Jr. College. She worked at the Stanley Woolen Mill as a cost accountant and made many lifelong friends there. Helen cherished the familiarity of a small town and the close neighbors and relationships she had for many years. Although her last few years were spent in Connecticut with her daughter Joan, when asked if she wanted anything, she would always say "I want you to help me dig a tunnel back to Uxbridge!” Helen was a lifelong member of St. Mary's Parish. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Helen spent her Saturdays enjoying tag sales and shopping; the treasures always finding their way to new homes with family members. She loved knitting and crossword puzzles, especially diagramless! Helen will be most remembered for her sarcastic wit and great sense of humor; making everyone around her laugh!
