Helen was born on November 19, 1933 in the town of Oswegatchie, a daughter of the late Roy & Inez (Tracy) Madill. She graduated from Heuvelton High School in 1950, and continued her education at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric School of Nursing. She later married Don E. Montroy on October 16, 1954.

During her career she worked at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center in Ogdensburg for 35 years as a registered nurse, and after retiring in 1990, she continued to work for a few more years with the United Helpers organization.

Helen was very active in the life of the First Presbyterian Church in Ogdensburg. She participated in the Presbyterian Women organization of the church, and was part of the bible study, the sewing group, in addition to working the snowflake sales, fudge sales and rummage sales. She baked and helped out at luncheons and receptions, and in 2004, received the PW Woman of the Year award. Beyond her work with PW, Helen also was vital to the Food $en$e program, both taking orders and on food delivery day. For many years Helen took care of flowers in the sanctuary and was church hostess for the Red Cross.

In her spare time she enjoyed playing cards, knitting, sewing, canning, garage sales, reading, puzzles, babysitting grandchildren and spending time with her family.

What a wonderful person. In Helen's past she enjoyed doing the adult walking program. She seemed to enjoy socializing & visiting with everyone. Helen was kind and friendly. She loved to knit & was always interested in the projects that others were working on. I'd often share or copy a pattern for her. She made my grandchildren many beautiful Christmas stockings. Helen was a good person & will be missed. My sincere condolences go out to the family. May she rest in peace.
