FORT EDWARD/MOREAU — Anna G. Tidd, 83, died peacefully on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at her home with her loving daughters by her side. She joined the love of her life, husband Bob of 63 years, who recently died on July 9, 2019 and who was waiting for her in heaven.

Born on August 2, 1936, in Glens Falls, New York, Anna was the daughter of the late Anthony and Mary Gabriele.

Anna attended and graduated from Fort Edward High School in 1954. Following graduation, she was pursued by employers leaving her no need to have to search for job opportunities. Anna attended Adirondack Community College, focusing in liberal arts and business courses, while raising her four children and working at the Fort Edward School District as an Administrative Assistant. She was a passionate, life-long learner.

On December 1, 1956, she married the love of her life Robert A. Tidd, the son Burton M. and Claire (Tardiff) Tidd, at St. Joseph’s Church in Fort Edward where she continued to serve and practice her faith. She “loved her Lord and church.” There, she completed Formation for Ministry, was a Eucharistic Minister, taught religious education and served on the Parish Council. She was an active member of Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court Morrissey #1477 having served as Financial Secretary, having held the office of Vice-Regent and Regent for several years.

After working for the Fort Edward School District, Anna worked as a secretary in the Division of Special Education at WSWHE BOCES in Hudson Falls retiring in 2001. She was an active member of the Tri-County Education Office Personnel Association. As a secretary, she created a welcoming atmosphere and provided her listening ear to whomever needed to be heard. She extended great patience and graciously shared her smile with everyone.

Anna was an active member of the Fort Edward Branch of the Glens Falls Hospital Guild; she volunteered much of her time throughout the years. She looked forward to the comradery of Donna Leonard’s “Friday Knitting Club,” knitting afghans for the South Glens Falls Marathon Dance along with newborn caps for the Glens Falls Hospital Snuggery.

Anna enjoyed returning to NYC, the location of her and Bob’s honeymoon, whether it was for adventuring through the streets or attending a show and dinner. Along with the destination, the journey by car, bus or train was equally fun with Bob or the whole family by her side. Once retired, Anna cherished spending time with Bob and their family at their lovely camp on Summit Lake. They also took yearly trips to Moody, Maine, which was “a must for the summer.” One of their most memorable trips, “exploring the good old USA,” was traveling cross country with the Moreau Senior Citizens joined by her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Teddy and Eleanor.

Anna loved being Bob’s bowling partner. He consistently complimented her perfect technique. Monthly luncheons with her sister, cousins and special friends, were also a special part of her life. Throughout the years, and even most recently, the NY Yankees were a highlight to their home entertainment bringing them live action against their arch rivals, specifically, the Boston Red Sox!

Following a lifetime of precious memories living in Fort Edward, Anna’s biggest dream came true of having her new home built. There, she carried on many traditions making sure that every holiday, especially Christmas and every single birthday, were celebrated with plenty of food, love and laughter. Most importantly, Anna loved her family! With Bob, she attended after school activities including sporting events, concerts, plays, recitals...basically, they were involved in every aspect of their children’s, grand children’s and great children's lives! She anticipated hearing about every piece of news pertaining to her loved ones!

Besides her husband and parents, Anna was predeceased by her infant brother, Macario, dear sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law along with a very special niece, Cynthia M. Caputo.

Left to cherish her memory include her children, Bobbi Ann Salerno and her husband Pat of Fort Edward, Donna Collier and her husband Mike of Moreau, Susan Carpenter and her husband Francis (Skeet) of Fort Edward and Antoinette Donahue and her husband Joe of Queensbury; her grandchildren who she adored, Anna Russell (Andy), PJ Salerno, Michael Collier, Joey Collier (Alex), Mackenzie Collier, Tara Ryther (Ronnie), Suzette Hill (Braxton) and Sean Donahue; her great-grandchildren who she thoroughly enjoyed, Blake and Cole Russell, Cecilie, Carter and Chipper Ryther, and Adellae and Camilla Hill.

She is also survived by her sisters Louisa Esperti and Angeline Caputo; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Family and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, September 26, at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway, Fort Edward.

A funeral Mass will be conducted at 10 a.m. Friday, September 27, at St. Joseph’s Church, 164 Broadway, Fort Edward.

Pallbearers include her grandsons PJ Salerno, Michael Collier, Joey Collier and Sean Donahue along with her grandson’s-in-law Andy Russell, Ronnie Ryther and Braxton Hill.

Rite of Committal will follow the funeral Mass at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Fort Edward.

Memorial donations in Anna’s memory can be made to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, 21301 S Tamiami Trail Suite 320 PMB 226, Estero, FL 33928 or

The family wishes to extend a very special thank you to the Palliative Care Homeward Bound Program and Community Hospice Saratoga along with a heart-felt thank you to sister “nurse” Louise, special caregivers Mary, Joan, Heidi and Heather for their gentle care and support to Anna and her family.

Words taken from Anna’s class reunion biography continues to be a reflection of her life, “In a nutshell, ‘I’ve had a wonderful life’ and wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. And having known all of you is part of it. God bless us all and ‘so long’ until we meet again!”

I worked with Anna at BOCES. Anna was "Pure of Heart"! I've thought of her often over the years. I know Anna loved her husband, family and God beyond words. They were Anna's world. Anna was a VERY special person, so kind and loving to all who knew her. When I think of Anna, I think of a woman who devoted her life to her family, keeping her family close to her heart, first and foremost but also a wonderful, loyal friend to all who knew her. There is no question in my mind, Anna is in heaven with Bob, holding hands, smiling, looking down on all those she loves. Rest in Peace Anna.
