Anne C. (Marcino) Soothcage, 99, passed away peacefully at her own home surrounded by her family on Friday, October 2, 2020.
Anne was born on March 10, 1921 in Whitehall, N.Y., the daughter of the late Angela (Bagnoncelli) and Joseph Marcino. She resided in Whitehall until graduation when she then left to work for GE during WW11. After the war she returned home and married Albert J. Soothcage on October 13, 1946. She worked as the bookkeeper for Soothcage Brothers Construction and Arctic Cat Sales and Service. In later years she worked in the Dental Offices of Dr. Robert Kana and now Dr. John P. Gill along with close associates, performing a variety of responsibilities.
She enjoyed baking for all the family gatherings. Especially Sunday dinners, and will be remembered for her mouth watering treats, especially her Italian Chiffon Cake made for each special holiday and celebration. With all Anne’s creative talents of cooking, baking, sewing, writing both creative stories and journaling, her values of faith, family and special friends always came first. Anne was a visionary – mentor -daughter- mother -sister -wife – grandmother and great grandmother – the pillar of our life and faith.
Besides her parents and husband of 54 yrs, she was predeceased by her brothers, Melio “Duce” and Joe Marcino, sisters Mary Osowicki, Rose Ross, and Esther Ross. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Angela Abodeely – Mills (Michael), her loving grandsons, David, Jonathan (Kelly) and Charles Mills (Sarah), her great-grandchildren Evan, Rory and Alex. Mills, Lakey Anne and Roxy May who were the light of her life, Keri Sherman, and Alex Sherman and her many “special nieces and nephews”, as well as her cherished neighbors; always there lending support, sending goodies or a helping hand.
The family would like to thank our extended family caregivers who helped her live life to the fullest with beauty, dignity and joy, especially in the final weeks at home. We can’t express enough thanks to Keri and Alex, Cindy, Christine, Robyn, Maggie and her wonderful niece, MaryAnne for countess dinners and care. A special thanks goes to her Grandson, David Abodeely, who was devoted to her around the clock care. Thanks to her grandson, Jonathan Abodeely, who was the wind beneath our wings, they were “Gram’s Love Warriors”.
Always giving thanks to the Dear Lord for His unending Grace that blessed Anne’s life and in the final moments brought her gloriously back to Himself.
