HUDSON FALLS – Sylvia M. Zerblus, 95, a long time resident of Hudson Falls, most recently of Westmount Health Care Facility in Queensbury, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 28, 2015 at Westmount Health Care Facility, surrounded by her devoted friend, Dorothy Michon and Tom and Joann Cummings.
Born January 1, 1920 in Montreal, Canada of French Canadian parents, she came to the United States as a young child and as her father was naturalized, she became a U. S. citizen.
Sylvia lived for awhile in California before moving with her parents to Hudson Falls. She was employed for a few years at General Electric in Fort Edward as a millworker.
Until 2013, when Sylvia went to Westmount Health Care Facility, she had lived alone. A cousin, Alfred, who lives near the Canadian border, survives.
Her true supporter and champion for over two decades was the late Richard Michon of Hudson Falls. All of Sylvia’s affairs and needs were handles by Richard with loyalty and true devotion. He and Sylvia had such a close bond that all could see and appreciate.
A very special “thank you” is extended to the doctors, nurses and staff at Westmount Health Care Facility for the compassionate care and love given to Sylvia during her time there.
There will be no calling hours per Sylvia’s request.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at St. Mary’s/St. Paul’s Church on the park in Hudson Falls.
The Rite of Committal will follow at St. Paul’s Cemetery in the town of Fort Edward.
Arrangements are under the care of Carleton Funeral Home, Inc., 68 Main Street, in Hudson Falls.
