MaryEllen Grant

MaryEllen Grant, 78, of Rt. 214, Chichester died Monday Nov. 6, 2017 at the Mountainside Residential Care Center in Margaretville. She was born March 18, 1939 at home in Chichester daughter of the late John and Mary Ellen Wright Staiger. Mary Ellen was a native of the Catskills and had a reputation as an excellent baker, who was known for her Angel Food cakes with strawberries and cream or chocolate and nuts. She crocheted many crafts and blankets over the years. She was proud of her simple life style, and would let you know what was on her mind.

Surviving are her sons: Vincent and Neil Jr., daughters: Kathy Sass and Theresa Grant, sister Patricia Ford, and sister in-law Jane Staiger VanLear. Nine grandchildren and fourteen grandchildren also survive.

A graveside service will be held on Sunday, Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. at the Shandaken Rural Cemetery with Fr. Raphael Iannone of the St. Francis de Sales Parish.

The family suggests memorial contributions may be made to the MF Whitney Hose Co. in Phoenicia. You may share a memory with the family on Mary Ellen’s memorial page at gormleyfuneralhome.com
