Marion Helms

WILLSBORO - It is with great sadness that Marjorie, Dirk, Jason, Logan, Mara, Joshua, and Jerilyn Jaquish, loving and close family of Marion Helms, announce her peaceful passing on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013, at the amazing age of 93 years.

Marion Perkett Helms was born on May 9, 1920, the daughter of Merton Temple and Iva Keyes.

Marion is survived by her daughter Marjorie Jaquish and husband Dirk of Willsboro, daughter Carol Murray and husband Jim of Long Lake; son Bill Perkett and wife Doris of Rochester, son Ed Perkett and wife Sarah of Colorado Springs, Colo., brother Sayle Temple and wife Kathy of the Finger Lakes region; sister-in-law Joyce Perkett of Pennsylvania, as well as 20 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Marion was predeceased by her husband Harold Perkett, husband Clarence "Ike" Helms; daughter Kay Marie Orloff; granddaughter Jennifer Murray; brother-in-law John Remancus, and brother- in- law Wilfred Perkett.

She was a strong role model to her family and many others in the area. Her strength, wisdom, and kindness affected so many people and she was well known in the area to many people for a variety of reasons. This began with the venture she had with Harold Perkett to begin the Sportsman's Dinette in Willsboro. She and Harold built up a business and family that still flourishes today. Her growing family was always a very important part of who she was and she was able to be home with her family until her peaceful passing.

Marion was an active participant of the Willsboro Congregational United Church of Christ for many years as her faith was very important to her and the way she conducted her life. She spent much time with her church friends and family making wreaths for the annual Green's Tea. She held many different positions at the church over the past years and always loved and enjoyed her church family.
