PLATTSBURGH — Mrs. Helen W. Lewis, 82, of Keeseville, N.Y., passed away Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012, at the CVPH Medical Center with family by her side. She was born in Plainfield, N.J. on June 20, 1930, the daughter of Allan F. and Martha F. (Purdy) Wood. They predeceased her, as well as a sister Uretta Wood, who died in infancy.

Helen graduated from Washington Irving High School in Tarrytown, N.Y., in 1948. She met the love of her life, her husband Robert Lewis on a blind date in May of 1948.

Helen and Bob joined the Keeseville United Methodist Church, where Helen worked faithfully every week as a volunteer at the Thrift Shop. It was a job she lived and worked at for over 40 years.
