NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ With the passage of Helen J. Beaven, 95, on July 14, the town lost another of its treasures â€“ a woman who generously shared her time, talent and wisdom and was of the generation of women who jumped in to fill whatever need arose.
With Rita Perry, her best friend of 70 years, Helen started the first Girl Scout troop in North Kingstown, in the North End, and guided assorted PTAs for years.
