Middleburgh, NY

Elfriede Emma Hanna (Pannier) Glebinski, of Middleburgh, New York, passed away peacefully with family at the age of 92 on Monday, February 19, 2024. Elfriede was born on March 19, 1931 to Gustav and Frieda Pannier in Bremerhaven, Germany. As she often said, she married the love of her life, Guenter Glebinski, on December 3, 1949. The newly married couple spent their honeymoon riding through Germany on a motorcycle and a handful of years later immigrated to the United States with their two small children, Ralf and Ingrid. Elfriede came to America as a young woman with little more than her intelligence, incredible work ethic and fierce determination to make a beautiful life for her family. As a new immigrant, she taught herself English in the evenings when her children were asleep by reading the newspaper with her English/German dictionary. One of her proudest memories was of completing the work and passing the test that made her an official citizen of the United States. Elfriede had a love of books that spanned her entire life and though her formal school education ended in the 8th grade, her family knows she was frequently the most well-read person in the room. Throughout her life, Elfriede was a lady of exceptional integrity and class. She cared wholeheartedly for her family, friends and neighbors and took every opportunity to lend a helping hand. She was known as the finest of cooks who delighted in preparing incredible meals and creating special holiday traditions. She was also a gifted seamstress and tailor who helped support her young family by taking on sewing and alteration projects in the evenings early in her life. She often said it was impossible to sit down without a project in her hands and she created many beautiful embroidered, knit and crochet items that are prized family heirlooms today. Elfriede was predeceased by her husband: Guenter, and her two brothers: Norbert and Paul Pannier. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law: Ralf and Debbie Glebinski; her daughter and son-in-law: Ingrid and Dennis Diakunczak; her daughter Doris Waxberg and partner Larry O’Connor; her eight grandchildren: Erik Glebinski, Timothy Glebinski and wife AnneMarie Glebinski, Katie Santiago and husband Justin Santiago, John Diakunczak, Taylor Diakunczak, Nikki Diakunczak and spouse Taya Misheva, Amanda Waxberg, Jason Waxberg, and her two great-grandchildren: Callan Santiago and Theodore Glebinski. Elfriede’s stories from growing up as a very young girl in a war-torn nation, her journey as an immigrant to the United States, and the many obstacles and triumphs beyond are nothing short of incredible. She is the rock upon which her family was built and we are filled with love and admiration for our smart, courageous, warm and loving mother, Oma and Uhr-Oma. She will be missed dearly. A funeral service will be held at 2:00PM on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Coltrain Funeral Home, LLC, 134 River Street, Middleburgh. All are invited to visit with her family, from 1:00-2:00PM at the funeral home, prior to the service. Spring inurnment will be in Pine Grove Cemetery.

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.
