Rosina Marie Scott Pauquette

 

Rosina Marie Scott Pauquette, 85, formerly of Granville, and Glens Falls, N.Y., passed away peacefully at her home in Gainesville, Fla., on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2008. Born in Granville, on Aug. 29, 1922, she was the daughter of Angelo and Josephine Scott, both of whom predeceased her. She was predeceased by her husband, Henry W. Pauquette Sr. who died in May of 2007, as well as her oldest brother, William. She is survived by her other siblings: John (Lore), of Bradenton, Fla., Carmela, of Granville, N.Y., Angelo, Jr. (Mary) of Granville, N.Y., and Teresa (Royal) of Rochester, N.Y. She is also survived by her three children: Donna Pauquette Cohen (David) of Gainesville, Fla., Henry Jr. (Diane) of Queensbury, N.Y., and J. Scott Pauquette (Cindy) of Gainesville, Fla.; her beloved grandchildren: Rebeccah, Justin, Ashley, Jeremy, Jonathan, Aimee and Amanda Pauquette; stepgrandchildren, Heidi Cohen and Gregg Cohen, as well as several nieces and nephews. Rosina graduated from Granville High School at the age of 16 and then went to Ithaca College where she graduated at 19. Her father thought her too young for the world yet, so she went back for her Masters in Education. She then started her musical teaching career in Downsville, N.Y., teaching everything from band to chorus, because of the lack of male teachers who were all at war. She completed her musical teaching career of 42 years at Washington Academy in Salem, N.Y. It was there that she was instrumental in expanding the musical program; therefore, her chorus was selected to go the World’s Fair in New York City to perform a production of H.M.S. Pinafore. After retiring, she became restless and went back to substitute teaching in special education until she moved to Florida almost four years ago. She was very active in the Catholic Daughters of America, the PTA and was a former member of the Glens Falls Country Club. Her greatest joys in life were her children, her adored grandchildren, her daily crossword puzzles and her 4 p.m. beer. Her greatest influence came from her parents and their business, "Scotties," which is still there today on Main Street in Granville, now owned by her nephew. Her joy of life touched many people, both young and old, and "Aunt Rosie’s" legacy will never die. A Mass of Christian Burial was held Friday, Feb. 29 at the Queen of Peace Parish inGainesville, Fla. Donations may be made in her memory to the Prospect Child and Family Center, 133 Aviaton Road, Queensbury, N.Y. 12804. A separate Celebration of Life will be held in Glens Falls, N.Y. on March 14, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Alphonsus Church, Broad Street, Glens Falls.
