Glenola Forcucci

Glenola “Babe” Forcucci, age 87, of Granville went to join her son Joe on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009. Babe passed away peacefully at her daughter Pat’s home in Saratoga Springs with her daughter at her side.

 

Babe was born in Skaneatles Falls, N.Y., on Aug. 30, 1921. She was the daughter of the late Arthur and Anna Wright. She was a devoted mother who always put her family first.

 

Babe leaves behind three children: Pat Gussey (Mark) of Saratoga Springs, Deborah Pardi (Tim) of Herkimer, N.Y., and Anthony Forcucci (Chris) of Coralville, Iowa, and daughter-in-law Jacqueline Forcucci of Chatham, N.Y. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren, two sisters-in-law, Filomena Carota of Glens Falls and Jane Wright of Granville and one brother in law Samuel (Anna) Forcucci of Cortland, N.Y., and several nieces and nephews. Babe was predeceased by her son, Joseph, a sister Ruth William, and brothers Arthur Wright of Granville and Robert Wright of Buffalo.

 

Babe was an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary and worked for several years as a garment worker at the J & J in Granville. Her whole life was devoted to loving, supporting and caring for her children. She will be dearly missed by them.

 

Babe’s children would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff at The Community Hospice of Saratoga for the wonderful care and comfort provided to their mother. A special thank you to Dixie Smith and Kelli Foley, Mom’s Hospice nurses.

 

There will be a memorial service and interment in the spring. There will be no calling hours. Those who wish may send contributions to The Community Hospice of Saratoga, 179 Lawrence Street, Saratoga Springs, New York, 12866.
