Rio Rancho, New Mexico – Helen M. Willett Morar, 78, passed quietly at her son’s home on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, surrounded by her son and daughter-in-law and her sisters. She was born in Fort Fairfield, Maine. Helen was the daughter of the late Robert and Pauline Willett.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Vasile (Chuck) Morar in 1989, her one and only love. She also lost her brother Robert F. Willett, and her sister Aneta Willett Todd Ott.
After graduating from Fort Fairfield High School, she took a year off before attending Central Maine General School of Nursing in Lewiston, Maine. After graduation, she and a couple of her friends headed to west for an adventure and loved California so much she decided to move there in 1963. She met and married her husband and eventually completed her Masters Degree in Nursing while working at Los Robles Regional Medical Center. Helen served in many capacities as a nurse as well as an Administrator. Shorty after the death of her husband she decided to move back East to Myrtle Beach, SC as an Administrator at the local hospital. After two years, she moved back to her beloved State of Maine working at Inland Hospital in Waterville, Maine. After retirement, she moved to Rio Rancho, NM to be near her family.
