MAYNARD, MA: Helen M. (Johnson) Vincent, affectionately known as "Nono," died in Acton, MA on Friday, May 15, 2020. She was 86.

A lifelong Maynard resident, Helen was the beloved wife of the late Thomas F. Vincent who died July 29, 1988, and is survived by her sister, Elsie Kennedy, and generations of loving nieces, nephews and extended family. She was predeceased by her parents, Nils Philip Johnson and Alice M. (Tobin) Johnson; a brother John Johnson; and her sister Barbara Tucker.

Helen was a graduate of Maynard High School and was a faithful parishioner of St. Bridget's Church in Maynard. She loved trips to York Beach in Maine, cherished time spent with her family and friends, and always ended conversations and visits with her favorite phrase, "Love ya!"

Due to the current restrictions, the graveside service in St. Bridget's Cemetery, Maynard, is private. A memorial Mass in St. Bridget's Church will be held at a later date when it is safe to gather. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, online at stjude.org.

Nono was a strong, opinionated woman. She knew what she wanted and had no regrets. She was a wonderful aunt, godmother and substitute great-grandmother to my granddaughter Ahlina. She will be gravely missed. Love ya NoNo

Nono was our second mother. As kids she would always tell us NO so the nickname stuck. Uncle Tom and Nono would take us to the bowling alley after church for English muffins and hot chocolate. The Tucker family and Vincent's would camp at Camp Eaton at York Beach every summer. Love ya! Sharon
