Obituary for Helen (Teel) Lopes

On Saturday evening, September 17, 2016, the matriarch of our family, Helen (Teel) Lopes, passed into eternal rest in the presence of her loving family. She was born in Springfield to the late Nora (Urzendowski) Teel and Edward Teel. She leaves her big brother, Edward Teel of Ludlow and was predeceased by her younger brother Frank Teel. Her husband, of 65 years, Benjamin Lopes passed away in October 2015 and now they’ll spend eternity together. She will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched including her daughters, Roseanna Goodfield and her husband Edward of Palmer. Donna Rinaldi and her husband Roger and Linda Bartos and her husband Bill both of Ludlow. Her devoted grandchildren, Lisa Pedro and her husband Manny. Scott Rinaldi and his fiancée Lynn, Kelly Rua and her husband Joe, Justin Silva and his fiancée Anna and Jason and Michelle. She also leaves eleven cherished great-grandchildren including, Emily, Allison R, Michael, Nora, Leah, Logan, Anna, Allison, J.J. Phillip and Hope.
Her happiest times were spent enjoying her large family on vacations, holidays, school events with the great-grandchildren, shopping trips or just visiting over a cup of coffee. She was an avid reader and enjoyed making puzzles. Donations may be made in her memory to the Shriners Hospital for children, 116 Carew Street, Springfield, MA. 01104 or
It was Helen’s wish that all services be private and arrangements were entrusted to Ludlow Funeral Home.
Words cannot express our sincere gratitude to the incredible staff at Healthsouth in Ludlow for their compassionate care and comfort given to us in our time of need.
