W est Pawlet, Vt. – Dorothy “Tosh” (Keelan)  Plisko, 86, went into the arms of the Lord on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Dorothy loved her “Unknown Friends” group.  She also enjoyed going on bus trips with her Senior Citizen group, and was well known for her baked beans and homemade rolls.

Dorothy was very proud of her Irish heritage, and was lucky enough to travel to Ireland twice.  She loved reminiscing with her family about her life, and always had a tale to tell.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12:00 pm on Monday, November 19, 2018 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 23 Bulkley Ave, Granville, N.Y. with Reverend Joseph Arockiasamy, pastor officiating.  Burial will follow in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery, Middle Granville, followed by a reception at The American Legion, Columbus Street, Granville.
