I am sorry to learn about the passing of Helen. She was a grand lady, had a rich and long life and I will always be able to hear her infectious laugh that had the power to bring people together. Helen and my mother shared birth dates that were only one day apart, making for many memorable celebrations and a special lifetime friendship.
When I was somewhere around 8 to 10, my mother one early June decided I should go live with the Nyboes for a a couple of weeks until she could bring the rest of the family and our belongings to our cottage in Round Pond. I'm not sure why this arrangement was made, but I suspect it was easier to prepare for the trip to Round Pond without me underfoot. At first, I was excited to go live with my summertime friend Mark Nyboe, but that turned fairly soon into homesickness. I remember Helen being a nurturing force and drawing me out of my shell. Soon Ken was teaching me how to use a hammer and I was swilling Pepsi with the rest of the family crew building a deck. Through this memory, other conversations and outings in Round Pond with Helen and the neighborhood, I always considered Helen as a second mom.
May your spirit forever live in Round Pond...farewell Helen.
Condolence: In sympathy to the Nyboe Family-
So sorry for your loss of Helen- a dear, special, unforgettable, warm person. I can remember so many good times at Round Pond. - birthdays , 4th of July fireworks, lobster bakes on the shore, trips to Louds Island and especially Helen and Nancy's 80th birthday celebration surprise as they shared birthdays together for a lifetime and we had so much fun with friends , family, great food, music and flowers. Helen was always a lot of fun and truly enjoyed life for 93 years in her beloved Round Pond. My thoughts are all with you at this difficult time. Peace to Helen and all- Marcia Meg Davison
Condolence: I write to offer condolences to the Nyboe family, especially Mike and Charlotte. Although I never knew Helen Nyboe, I do know what a feeling loss Mike expressed to me last week. Based on every conversation I had with Mike about his mother, I conclude that she was quite a lady!
Condolence: Mike & Charlotte,
So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing Mike. We all know she is in a better place. I remember so many good memories of her at Christmas and other family times - July 4 Celebrations, eating lobster and having fun in Wilton.
I will be praying for you and Charlotte during this tragic family loss.
