Obituary

MOREAU

Dorothy A. (Rabideau) Gifford, 84, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at her home.

Born June 11, 1935 in Cadyville, NY, she was the daughter of the late John and Gladys (Brooks) Rabideau.

On June 2, 1954, Dorothy married Elmer Gifford at the St. James Catholic Church in Cadyville, NY with Rev. Joseph F. Quinn officiating. Together they raised their family until Elmer’s passing on January 17, 2019.

Dorothy was a longtime communicant of the St. Michael the Archangel Church in South Glens Falls, and had attended since its inception in 1956. She served on both the Rosary Altar Society and the Bereavement Committee. She was a woman of great faith and loved serving her Lord.

Dorothy also had a great love of her family. She enjoyed traveling with her sisters and camping with her siblings as well as attending the Greenjackets football games whom her son Jon played for. She will be greatly missed by many.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Dorothy is predeceased by a granddaughter, Bethany L. Petteys.

Left to cherish her memory are her children; Daniel Gifford of Moreau, Linda Petteys and her husband Michael of Gansevoort, and Jon Gifford and his wife Linda of Chester, NY, her grandchildren; Sara Buenaventura and her husband Jason, and Erin Lawrence and her husband Ryan, her great-grandchildren; Clara, Luke, Adele, Ethan, Olive, Emma, and Aubrey, her sisters; Marie Drollette and her husband Gary, and Barbara Normandin and her husband Charles, her brother Francis Rabideau, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Friends may call from 10-11am on Monday, July 29, 2019 at the St. Michael the Archangel Church, 80 Saratoga Ave., South Glens Falls, NY. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11am following the calling hour with Rev. Guy A. Childs, Pastor, officiating.

Rite of Committal will take place at 2pm at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery, 200 Duell Rd, Schuylerville, NY.

Many visits to my Aunt and Uncle on way back and forth to SUNY Cobleskill, first myself and later with my sisters Jean and Tina and brother Bernie. Some of the best memories of my life - a truly great couple who asked for nothing and gave everything.
