I've recently learned a family story from my aunt. Apparently, my great grandmother's niece, Helen Cheever, married John S Skea (who passed away in 1988), and had 2 daughters (Paula Skea may be one of the daughter's names since her name was in a deceased family member's address book, the other name is unknown) by 1954, when they attended Helen's parent's Golden Anniversary party in Maine. Our family members were told that Helen left her husband and children one day and never came back. There was no note, no whispers she was leaving... one day just left the house and never came back. Helen's father spent the rest of his life searching for her. My great grandmother had altzheimer's in the end, and when my aunt went to visit, my great grandmother would say, "Oh, Helen! You came back!" By that, my description of her is vague. Around 5'4"-5'6", dark brown hair, most likely blue or green eyes, and a thin-medium build. Her last known address was 55 Essex St, Beverly, MA, in 1960. She was 39. The next address I have is 1963, and only lists John at that address. I have a suspicion she didn't just leave her 2 daughters without so much as a goodbye. I've been trying to find mention of her disappearance in a newspaper, but have been unsuccessful. If anyone can help with that, I would greatly appreciate it!
