Bradford - Helen Gobbi (Lovely) 92, of Haverhill died peacefully on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at High Pointe House, surrounded by her loving family.
Helen was born in Haverhill on June 11, 1926, the daughter of the late Earl and Kathryn (Carney) Lovely. She was educated in the Haverhill Public School System and graduated with Haverhill High School's, Class of 1944.
Helen married her adoring husband Dante Gobbi in 1955, and shortly thereafter fulfilled her dream of becoming a mother.
Helen was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her life centered around making her family feel loved and nurtured, and her home was the epitome of these attributes. She loved to cook, host holidays, and watch sports. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.
Helen was the beloved wife to the late Dante Gobbi; devoted mother to Dante Gobbi, Jr. and his wife, Laurie of Bradford; Gerard Gobbi and his wife Ellen of Atkinson; Patrick Gobbi and his wife, Mary of Bradford, and Maria Francis & her husband Kevin of Danville, N.H. She was also the loving "Grammy" to Andrea Gobbi, Patrick Gobbi, Jr., Corey Gobbi, Bryan Gobbi, Jarod Gobbi, Ian Gobbi, Brandon Gobbi, Luke Flagg and Cameron Gobbi. She was also sister to the late John Lovely, Mary Senter, James Lovely, and Earl Lovely.
The entire Gobbi family would like to extend our thanks to Holy Family Hospital and High Pointe House for the compassionate care that they provided to Helen.
