CORINTH — Helen Marquardt, 95, of Center Street, died Sunday, July 29, 2012, at the Stanton Nursing and Rehab Centre in Queensbury following a short illness.

Born on Aug. 12, 1916, in Queens, she was the daughter of the late August and Stella (Krieger) Marquardt.

Helen graduated from Flushing High School in 1933.

She was employed as the head bookkeeper for a large retail firm in Hackensack, N.J., for many years until her retirement. Following her retirement, she realized her lifelong dream by moving to the Adirondacks with her sister and her mother in 1967.

Helen was a longtime communicant of the Holy Mother and Child Parish in Corinth, and assisted with the religious education classes at the church for several years. She also was a member of the Altar Rosary Society and the Catholic Daughters of America.

She was a member of the former Adirondack Regional Hospital Auxiliary, served as an usher at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and served on Corinth Beautification Committee.

Helen enjoyed gardening, cooking and sewing.

Besides her parents, she was also predeceased by three brothers, John, August Jr. , and George Marquardt; and by three sisters, Mary Jane, Sophie and Josephine Marquardt.

Survivors include two nephews, George Marquardt Jr. and his wife, Lorraine, of Hampstead, N.C. and Robert Marquardt and his wife, Kathy of Lake George; one niece, Janet Malacuso and her husband, Tom of Wantagh, L.I.; three grandnephews, George, Steven and Robert and two grandnieces, Kim and Jennifer; and several great-grandnieces and nephews.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m., Tuesday, July 31, 2012, at Holy Mother and Child Parish, 407 Palmer Ave., Corinth with the Rev. Kenneth Swain, pastor, officiating.

A Rite of Committal will be held at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Corinth.

Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. today (Monday), at the Densmore Funeral Home Inc., 7 Sherman Ave., Corinth.

The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Holy Mother and Child Parish, 407 Palmer Ave., Corinth, NY 12822.
