June 8, 1928 - May 19, 2019
Marie R. Matson, age 90 years, passed away on May 19, 2019 comfortably surrounded by her family at her son and daughter in laws home. She was born on June 8, 1928, in Catskill, N.Y. and is the daughter of the late Lois and Virginia (Almendo) Appa. Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her loving husband Herb, her daughter Derena and her brothers Tony and Vincent. Survivors include her son Gary and his wife Karen, granddaughter Samantha Super and her husband Brian, and Brian’s son Adam. In Marie’s latter years, she enjoyed living at her son and daughter in law’s home for the last nine years. She enjoyed living a relaxed life, loving cooking, baking, her television shows, crocheting blankets for family and friends. She especially enjoyed making blankets for the Comfort Care patients at Albany Medical Center in the unit where her granddaughter works as a nurse. Marie also enjoyed going shopping and getting her hair done every Friday with her daughter in law. During Marie’s lifetime, she was able to see everything that she had hoped to see, one was especially to be able to see her granddaughter and her husband Brian getting married. Two other thrills of her life included meeting one of her Godchildren Eric after 50 + years, who was born in her car 50+ years ago, and also her surprise 90th. birthday party.
