Middleburgh, NY

Strength comes from experience and perseverance. And strength comes from love. And Sylvia Bourdeau embodied all of those, right up until her last breath, finding eternal peace on Sunday, January 7, 2023 in the loving care of her family. Born in Schenectady 79 years ago on November 5, 1944 to Hattie (Anthony) and David Bourdeau, Sylvia grew up in Schoharie and began her own family early on and she could not be a better example of a fighting spirit, with a zest for life. She never missed an opportunity to cut a rug and could often be heard singing, a little off key but full of heart, to her favorite music. As fiery and peppery as her tongue could be, allowing her to stand her ground and speak her mind, is just as soft, gentle and caring as she could be the rest of the time. Whether to the beautiful flowers in her gardens, to the patients at Robinson Terrace where she worked as a CNA for many years, to the many generations of her family and to generations of others in the community, who lovingly and adoringly called her “Gram,” Sylvia’s experiences, perseverance, strength of spirit and love will be cherished forever by her daughters: Robin (David) Hagadorn of Middleburgh, Wendy (Jim) McBain of Cobleskill; her son: Roger “Boydie” (Val) Lawyer, Jr. of Middleburgh; her sister: Vivian Rabinoff of Mariaville; her grandchildren: Nicole Porter, Alexis Kuhn, Erick (Harley) Kenney, Jacob Kenney, Michaela Lawyer, Renee Lawyer, Justin Goodrich, BillyJo (Sally) Bender, Jennifer (Josh) Dedrick, Samantha Kenney, April Mickle, Brett Mickle, Katy Mickle, Cassidie Higgins; many great and great-great-grandchildren. Sylvia’s spirit joins her daughters: Shelly Marie Mickle, Terry Lynn Porter; her son: Scott Edward Mickle; grandsons: Randy “RJ” Kenney, Jr., Lucas Higgins; great-grandson: Steven Donald Kuhn; her parents and her brother: Gerald Young and her nephew: Mark Exstrom, who all predeceased her. A visitation for family and friends is being planned and details will be shared when finalized. In keeping with her wishes, when her favorite flowers are blooming again this spring in her garden, Sylvia’s urn, which matches those of her daughter and grandson, will be laid to rest in the Middleburgh Cemetery and her family and friends will gather again to continue celebrating her life.

Middleburgh, NY

Mary Warner passed away on Thursday, December 21, 2023 after a courageous fight with cancer. Mary was born on September 2, 1965 in Cobleskill, grew up in Middleburgh and graduated from Middleburgh Central School in 1984. After graduation, Mary lived in Central Bridge for a short time before moving in with her best friend and the love of her life, Jim, in 1985. They married in 1991 and brought two sons into the world. Mary took the job of motherhood very seriously, teaching both of her sons math and reading skills before they entered Kindergarten. She never hesitated to sacrifice her own wants so that her boys would have everything they needed to succeed. She cried when they went to college, because she missed them. And she cried when they graduated because she was so proud of their accomplishments. Family meant everything to Mary and she would always share how lucky she was to have such a great one. Mary was also a very hard worker, starting at her first job when she was just twelve and working right up through this year, amidst fighting the cancer. And at only five foot one and a scant hundred pounds, Mary could easily disarm the biggest and angriest customers at work with her dark humor, quick wit and charm. She did get to see the completion of her new home and planned to retire to her little piece of paradise on Ecker Hollow. Mary loved all kinds of music, from attending rock concerts, live music or just a guitar at the campfire, music made her happy and she passed that love to her sons as well. There is much more to Mary’s story but little room here to even scratch the surface. She loved deeply and was loved deeply and respected and will sorely missed be everyone whose lives she touched. Cherishing her forever are her husband: Jim of Middleburgh; her sons: Jimmy of Albany and Michael (Izzy) of Middleburgh; her mother: Marlene Brown of Middleburgh; her sister: Kim Teeuwe (Dave Ellis) of Middleburgh; her brothers: Brian Teeuwe of South Carolina and Michael Teeuwe of Middleburgh; her mother and father-in-law: Diane and David Warner of Middleburgh; and many other family members and friends. Mary was predeceased by her father: Stephen Teeuwe. While Mary requested no formal services, her family thanks you for remembering her and them and asks that donations in Mary’s honor be sent to Helios Care at www.helioscare.org Coltrain Funeral Home, LLC of Middleburgh is honored to be caring for Mary and her family.
