Ruth M. Conety, 85

Ruth M. Conety of 8 High St. passed away Sunday, Oct. 18, 2009, at her home following a long illness.

 

Born Jan. 7, 1924, in Hartford, she was the daughter of the late Thomas A. and Catherine (McKittrick) Brayton.

 

Mrs. Conety was employed at General Electric in Bridgeport, Conn., H. F. Binches in Glens Falls and Telescope Casual Furniture Co., where she retired after 24 years of service. She served on the executive board of Local 36 AFL-CIO as recording secretary for 18 years and as chief steward in the sewing department for 20 years. She also served as a member of the contract negotiating committee from 1967 through 1983. After retirement she returned to work at Manchester Wood until leaving to care for her husband.

 

Ruth was a member of the Granville Baptist Church, past member of the Granville Henry Hose Fire Department Auxiliary and a member of the American Legion Post 323 Ladies Auxiliary.

 

Mrs. Conety was an avid New York Yankees fan and enjoyed discussing politics, but her family was always her first priority.

 

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Orley J Conety, and infant son Gary T. Conety.

 

Survivors include a sister, Nettie Moore Pekar of Wilton; one son, Richard Conety and wife Elaine of Hoosick Falls; three daughters, Marlene MacEachron and husband Robert of Granville, Patricia Printy and friend Dave Wilhelm of Kansas City, Mo., and Karen Ayers and husband William of Granville; four grandsons, 11 granddaughters, 32 great-grandchildren and one additional great-granddaughter due in December; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

 

Funeral services will be conducted at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Granville Baptist Church with the Rev. James Peterson officiating. Interment will be at Mettowee Valley Cemetery in Granville. Friends may call from 11 a.m. until the time of the service Wednesday at the church.

 

Instead of flowers, the family has suggested memorials be in the form of contributions to Hospice of Washington County, 415 Lower Broadway, Fort Edward.

 

Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
