She was the wife of the late John E. Sullivan and the mother of the late Beverly Ann Sullivan, the daughter of the late William & Marion ( Kennedy ) Keefe, Sister of the late Ollie Keefe, William Keefe & Dorothea Wessell.

Helen is survived by her children Ms Christine Sullivan of Quincy, John E. “Jack” Sullivan & his wife Penny of Warwick, R.I., Robert Sullivan and his wife Cynthia of Hingham, James Sullivan of the South End of Boston, Richard Sullivan of So. Yarmouth, David Sullivan and his wife Alice of Arizona, Paul Sullivan and his wife Toomey of Dedham, Mrs Richard ( Cheryl ) Petrie of Waltham & Helen E.
