Newark/North Carolina----Helen passed peacefully January 28, 2022, at Amoren Hospice Forlines Center in Hudson North Carolina.

She was born August 4, 1942 in Sodus, N.Y., the second daughter of the late Paul and Jennie Hotel Van Lare. Helen graduated from Marion Central School in 1960 and was a member of the first class to graduate from the BOCES School of Nursing in Williamson.

After graduation she joined the nursing staff of Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, and soon was serving as a scrub nurse in the operating room, working alongside Doctors Joseph Kaufman, Reason, and Diamond. After raising her children, she worked in the office of Dr. Reason and later as nurse and office manager for Dr. John Davis.

Helen was active in her community and church. She served as an elder at Park Presbyterian Church and was a Girl Scout leader and active in the Arcadia Republican Committee and Wayne County Woman’s Republican Club. Bowling was her longtime passion.
