George C. Card, 78

G eorge C. Card, 78, of Fort Edward passed away peacefully on Monday, April 25, 2011, at Glens Falls Hospital following a long illness.

George was born on July 29, 1932, in Wappingers Falls, N.Y., to the late Charles D. and Margaret J. (Cszervak) Card.

He attended Wappingers Falls High School.

George worked for many years with his parents as a building contractor in Wappingers Falls, N.Y. He moved to Whitehall in 1969, and he worked for Luxury Homes in Bomoseen, Vt., and Grinnell Construction in Ticonderoga in addition to subcontracting for other builders. Upon leaving the building business, he worked for a time at Whitehall Plywood until his retirement. George liked to keep busy and worked in the hardware department of Walmart for a period after his retirement.

He enjoyed camping, fishing, watching the races and was an avid photographer having published several photo “how to” articles when he was younger. He also enjoyed time with his family – especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents and infant brother, Charles, he was predeceased by his first wife of 32 years, Carole A. (Schlosser) Card, who passed away April 17, 1987 after a long battle with cancer and his second wife of 22 years, Janice M. (Hilder) Card, who passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 22, 2011.

He is survived by his daughter, Margaret (Peggy) Hurlburt and her husband, Gary, of Fort Edward; three sons; Charles R. Stone and his wife, Debra, George T. Card and his wife, Lora (Paddock) both of Whitehall and John E. Card and his companion, Sarah Jane McAndrews, of Anniston, Ala.; his stepchildren, Debra (Hilder) Yarter of Ganesvoort, Janice Paddock of Granville, Cheri (Paddock) Golden and her husband, Ronald, of Whitehall, Cheyenne Paddock and his wife, Andrea, of Lancaster, Calif. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren with two more on the way; his aunt, Theresa Hamilton of Hughsonville, N.Y., and several cousins.

In addition to his grandson Adam, who was always there to help in any way necessary, we would like to thank the staff of Glens Falls Hospital especially those in the Emergency Room, Tower 5 and 3 North that have cared for him so many times over the years, the staff at B Wing of Fort Hudson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Shannon, Christine and Christie at Support Link Inc., special caregivers, Kayla, Lynette and Jeannine and the dedicated volunteers of the Moreau Rescue Squad who helped both George and his late wife Janice so many times in recent years.

A prayer service will be conducted on Saturday, April 30, 2011, at 2 p.m. at the Jillson Funeral Home Inc. 46 Williams St., Whitehall, with the Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor of Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church officiating.

Interment for George and his wife, Janice, will be on Friday, May 6, 2011 at 10 a.m. at Greenmount Cemetery in Whitehall.

Family and friends may call at the funeral home on Saturday, April 30, 2011, from noon to time of prayer service.

The family suggests donations be made to the Moreau Rescue Squad, 683 Route 9, Fort Edward, NY 12828
