Helen Caprood

HUDSON FALLS- Helen Caprood, age 98 years, of Hudson Falls, died on February 14, 2018, at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born on May 29, 1919, Helen was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Norton) O’Keefe.

She became engaged to William (Al) Caprood prior to his four years of service with the Army Air Corps in the Pacific Theater. Upon Al’s return home from the war, they married on November 17, 1945.  Together they lived the majority of their happy life in the home they built on East Labarge Street in Hudson Falls.

Helen was predeceased by her beloved husband, Al, her sister, Nancy and her daughter-in-law, Cheryl.

She is survived by her daughter, Nancy of Utah; her son, Bill, who has been her loving caretaker; and his significant other, Jan Severance; her two grandsons, whom she cherished, Jeff of Fort Edward and Bill, and his significant other, Janet Fish of Hudson Falls; and her three great granddaughters, Alivia, Aberdeen and Meela.

Among her many interests, Helen was an avid reader, very proud of her Irish heritage, an advocate of the simple things in life, an interested listener, and an engaging storyteller.

Helen never wanted anything, but always gave everything. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched.

Her family would like to recognize and thank her caregivers, especially Donna, whose attentiveness and loving care over the years gave Helen such rich quality of life. Also special thanks to her other wonderful sitters, Debbie, Ann, JoAnn, Renee and Donna for the many hours of care devoted to Helen’s wellbeing.

The family would also like to thank the providers, staff and care management team of T2 Oncology Unit, and special recognition to Dr. William Tedesco for his compassion and understanding.

Funeral services are private, at the convenience of the family.

All arrangements are under the direction of Carleton Funeral Home, Inc., 68 Main Street, Hudson Falls, NY 12839.

    While I do not suppose I have seen Helen since the mid-fifties (when Bill and I were grade school classmates and sometimes playmates) I remember the family and Helen well. I hope each and all are found now in the embrace of the family members and friends who love them and loved Helen, and share their loss. May God Bless and Keep Each and All!
