June 14, 2013

Mrs. Ada H. Hotaling, formerly of Mergner Road, Fort Johnson, died peacefully on Friday, June 14, 2013 at the Edward. L. Wilkinson R.H.C.F. following a brief illness. She was in her 100th year.

She was a member of the Sir William Johnson Seniors, the Montgomery and Schoharie County Historical Society's and the Walter Elwood Nature Club.

A woman of quick wit and opinion, you always knew what she was thinking. She enjoyed gardening and loved her animals. Above all else, she loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them. She certainly will be missed.
