Helen Mae Leamer, 95, a former Westport resident, died June 14. She was 95.

Born in Westport to the late Edward and Pearl Burkey, she was one of seven children. After graduating from Staples High School, she was accepted into the University of Chicago where she earned her BA in 1939.

While at the university, she met Laurence Leamer and the couple was married on Aug. 9, 1940. During World War II, she and her two small children lived with her in-laws and parents while her husband served in the Army. Laurence was an economics professor first at the University of Chicago and then for most of his career at what became the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Helen was active in the community, worked part-time in the Vestal Library and was an active member of the Vestal United Methodist Church.

Predeceased by her husband Laurence, she is survived by her sons Laurence (Vesna), Edward (Ama), and Robert (Mary Frances); six grandchildren; nine great grandchildren; two step-great grandchildren; sisters Mary Walker, Florence Smith and Marjorie Markwell; and many more relatives, caretakers and friends.

A celebration of her life will be held on July 13 at noon at Franciscan Oaks, 19 Pocono Road, Denville, N.J.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the University of Chicago, the Employee Appreciation Fund of Franciscan Oaks or any local public library of your choice.
