SOUTH GLENS FALLS – Antoinette “Ann” Caivano Roberts, of South Glens Falls, went into the loving arms of our Lord on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, at her home surrounded by her family, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born February 20, 1929, in Hudson Falls, she was the daughter of the late Dominic and Mary (DeMonico) Caivano.
Ann was married to the late Jerome Roberts, who died on July 25, 1992.
Ann was employed at the Troy Shirt Factory until settling down to married life, first in Saratoga, then moving to South Glens Falls. She was a devoted Christian and was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church of Hudson Falls and St. Michael’s Church of South Glens Falls.
