Grace Phyllis Rooney, age 97 years, of South Cairo, passed away on June 28, 2018 surrounded by loving friends at the Albany Medical Center.
Grace, or Phyllis as she preferred to be called, was born in Brockton, Massachusetts to parents Samuel and Florence L. Frost.
Phyllis was an active and energetic individual who had a storied life that took her from Brockton to England and back before and after World War II. She enjoyed traveling, volunteering and she was a voracious reader. She loved all things Irish and was very proud of her Irish heritage. Phyllis was a well-known and attentive volunteer for the Kaaterskill Nursing Home, now Greene Meadows, for many years while her husband was a resident there.
Besides her parents, Phyllis was predeceased by her husband of 32 years, Vincent; her son David and her favorite cat Smokey. She is survived by her nephew the Reverend Dr. Edward Frost, as well as many close friends who will miss her dearly.
Phyllis donated her body to the Albany Medical College. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to gather at Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home, 139 Jefferson Hgts. Between 1:30 - 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 21, 2018. A memorial service will be conducted at 2:00 pm by Deacon Mike McDonald.
Donations in her memory can be made to the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA, 111 Humane Society Road, Hudson, NY 12534. Envelopes for donation will be available at the memorial service.
