On May 18th, Helen Grotton finally got her “wish” to join her husband, Wyman, in eternity. They were married for 65 years. Wyman passed in 2011. Their relationship was and is an everlasting love.
Helen was born the 4th daughter of Allen and Bernice (Gracie) Young in East Union, ME on July 1, 1928. She graduated from local schools and attended Gates Business School in Augusta.
In 1946, she married John “Wyman” Grotton and lived in Somerville to begin her family. Out growing that home, they moved to Unity to begin farming. In 1957, they moved to Connecticut to pursue different careers.
Helen worked at Stop & Shop Supermarket for 19 happy years. She enjoyed her job and her family there. After retirement they moved back to Maine.
Helen was active with the Lily of the Valley Eastern Star and was a member of the American Legion.
Mrs. Grotton was pre-deceased by her husband, John W. Grotton; two sons: John W. Grotton, Jr. and James W. Grotton; three sisters: Alfreda Grotton, Hazel Peabody and Marion Collins and a son-in-law, Alan Setzer.
Helen is survived by a son, Joel. W. Grotton of South China; two daughters: Cynthia Riley and her husband Bob of South China and Candace Setzer of Winder, GA and a sister, Charlotte Young of Newcastle. Her grandchildren are Wade and his wife Lesley, Heather and her husband Peter, Jessica and her husband Mike Makowski, Rachael and her husband Ken, Nancy and her husband Mike, Joel Grotton, Jason Grotton, John Grotton and Kiley Grotton. She also enjoyed 5 great grandchildren.
In Helens’ memory, please play a game. Be it a game of Sixty Three Cards, outside whiffle ball or baseball. She loved her Red Sox! Enjoy some back yard fun and Barbecues.
Being part of a large family was special to her. She has many nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters in law, and cousins. She loved to travel from Alaska to the East Coast to visit them all. She has said many times, “I have had a wonderful life!”
At her request, there will be no public visiting hours or funeral service. A gathering of family and friends in Helen’s honor will take place at a later date at the Riley Farm.

Erik and I want to express our sincere condolences to the family. We loved Aunt Helen. I in particular loved hearing the stories of the past and because of her thoroughly took on genealogy as a hobby. Her love of Uncle Wyman and his love for her was apparent whenever we would come home to visit as kids with Mom and Dad. Helen and Wyman had so much humor and love to share. We miss and love them so much. Hugs, Prayers, and Love to the family. Love Tammy (Grotton) Anderson and Erik Anderson
