Helene G. Nelson

Helene G. Nelson, 96, passed away on April 29, 2017. Helene was born on

February 23, 1921, in Hudson Falls, NY, the daughter of

George F. and Josephine Nailor Barot. During her infancy her father

called her “Peach”, the name she was known by throughout her life.

Following her graduation from Hudson Falls High School Peach

met Francis “Ozzie” Nelson. They were married October 19, 1941. Ozzie

predeceased Peach on January 5, 2005, after 63 years of marriage.

Peach was an accomplished seamstress. She enjoyed reading, crocheting,

knitting, playing cards with family, and dipping her feet in a cool

brook. Peach and Ozzie enjoyed annual vacations in St. Augustine, FL, and

the Thousand Islands, NY. They also spent many summers at their camp

on Sacandaga Lake.

She is survived by her daughter Linda (Ronald) Coslick, son, Robert

(Lynn) Nelson, grandsons Ron Coslick, Jr., Christopher Nelson,

Daniel Nelson, granddaughter Cynthia Coslick, and great-grandson,

Grayson Coslick. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Peach was predeceased by her brother Alvin Barot and her sisters

Veronica Breeyear and Vivian Harvey.


Visitation will be held on Friday, May 5th from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM at St.

Madeleine Sophie Church, 3500 Carman Road, Schenectady NY 12303,

followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 AM at the church.

 Burial will be at Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery, 2501 Troy Road, Schenectady NY 12309 immediately following the Mass.

                                                                       Flowers may be sent to DeMarco Stone Funeral

Home, 1605 Helderberg Avenue, Rotterdam NY 12306.


The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of

Kingsway Arms Nursing Center for their kind and caring

support for Peach over the past few years. In lieu of any donations, and

to honor her memory, Peach's family would be happy if you could take

some time to visit the elderly and lonely in a nursing home or hospital

near you. "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is

this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction." James 1:27.
