Marlene N. MacEachron, 69

M arlene N. MacEachron, 69, a lifelong resident of Granville, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family, on Monday, Aug. 2, 2010, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Marlene was born in Granville on Feb. 14, 1941. She was the daughter of the late Orley and Ruth Conety and the eldest of her siblings: Patricia Printy of Kansas City, Mo., Karen Ayers of Granville and Richard Conety of Hoosick Falls.
After graduating from Granville High School, Marlene was awarded the Voyageurs of 40 and 8 Scholarship for nursing to attend Albany Medical School of Nursing. She received her diploma in the spring of 1962 with the prestige of being valedictorian of her class. She went on to be employed as a registered nurse at Albany Medical Hospital, Glens Falls Hospital, and Rutland (Vt.) Hospital. After a 25-year hiatus to raise a family, Marlene returned to nursing at Indian River Nursing Home for more than 22 years, where she was highly regarded as conscientious, caring, and compassionate professional.
Marlene was best known as a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. On Oct. 7, 1961, she married Robert MacEachron, and during 49 years of marriage, they raised four children.
Robert co-owned and operated MacEachron Motors in Granville for more than 23 years. Marlene was very proud of her children, daughter Kelly MacEachron of Latham; son Col. Jeffrey MacEachron and his wife, Sharon, of Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass.; daughter Kim Mabie and her husband, David, of Buford, Ga.; and son Scott MacEachron and his wife, Michele, of Queensbury.
Marlene was especially admired by her 11 grandchildren. She enjoyed going on vacation, attending athletic events and performances, and simply being with her grandkids. Marlene was beloved “Grammy” to grandchildren Timothy and Matthew MacEachron of Latham, Samantha, Thomas, and Jamie MacEachron of Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, Jenna, Kelsea, and Kendall Mabie of Buford, Ga., Alexis Bryant, Katherine and Madeline MacEachron of Queensbury. Marlene had a large extended family with whom she was very close. This included many nieces and nephews, as well as members of the MacEachron family.
Marlene loved the Granville community and was active with many civic duties. She was a lifelong member of the Granville Baptist Church, serving as Sunday school director with her great friend Brenda Smith. Together they took the Sunday school program to new heights, mentoring hundreds of students who remember their instruction and mentorship today. She served in numerous other positions as well, to include more than 20 years in the choir. With the Granville Little League, she was a perennial volunteer coach, administrator, and concession manager. Additionally, she served as a Girl Scout leader for Granville’s local council. She was an avid supporter of the Granville School District.
Her strength and indomitable spirit kept her going even though the odds were against her. She was beautiful inside and out and will be forever missed.
Marlene’s family wishes to express their gratitude and thanks to all of the staff at Glens Falls Hospital, Dr Weinhold’s Office, Washington County Hospice, her Indian River Nursing Home co-workers, and numerous family and friends who provided encouragement and support.
Arrangements are under the direction of Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, where calling hours will be conducted from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug 4. Family and Friends are invited to a memorial service honoring her life at the Granville Baptist Church, 23 Quaker St, Granville, on Thursday, Aug 5, at 11 a.m.
For those who wish, memorial contributions in Marlene’s honor may be made to the Granville Baptist Church.
