Dorothy ‘Mitizie’ Nolette

Dorothy ‘Mitizie’ Nolette, 74

Dorothy "Mitzie" L. Nolette, 74, of Railroad Avenue, Whitehall, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 at the Glens Falls Hospital.

Born on May 4, 1934 in Whitehall, she was the daughter of the late Burgess, Sr. and Dorothy (Robetor) Field.

She was a communicant of Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, past member of the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Auxiliary and a member of the Quarter Century Club (International Paper).

Mitzie was a very hard worker.  She was employed with International Paper Co in Ticonderoga for 40 years where she worked many hours of overtime.  She also worked as a lead driver for her husband’s mobile home transport traveling from Kinderhook, N.Y.+, Fair Haven, Vt., to Maine, New Hampshire and into Florida.  She especially liked to go in the truck with her husband in all 48 states when he worked for BTL.

Mitzie enjoyed the Whitehall Senior Citizens and their monthly dinners and also made her cottage cheese desserts that everyone liked.

She will be greatly missed by each and every one who knew her.

Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her son, Harold Gandrow, and many aunt and uncles.

She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Marvin Nolette; one son, George Gandrow of Whitehall; one sister, Frances Anderson and her late husband, Donald, of Florida; three brothers, Burgess R. Field, Jr., and his wife, Mary of Ticonderoga,  Robert E. "McGrew" Field of Pickens, S.C., Leonard A. Field and his wife, Sherri of Whitehall; one aunt, Marguerite Robetor of Whitehall; three granddaughters, Jodi Lalone and her husband, Bryan, of Chestertown, Chelsey McLaughlin and her husband, Scott, of Chestertown and Amber Gandrow of Whitehall; three great grandsons, Aiden Lalone, Bryce Lalone and Patrick A. McLaughlin; and several nieces and nephews.

A Memorial Mass was celebrated on Tuesday, April 14 at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating.
Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Dorothy’s name to Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, N.Y. 12887 or the Whitehall Senior Citizens, c/o Robert LaFrance, 26 Adams Street, Whitehall.
