Theresa Gaetano Mattison

November 8, 2012

Theresa Gaetano Mattison passed away peacefully on November 8, 2012, in Sonoma, CA, surrounded by her loving family.

A long time resident of Owego, N.Y., Theresa was born in Amsterdam, N.Y. on June 6, 1924, to Louise and Anthony Gaetano. She is survived by her brother, Francis Gaetano (Adeline), of Amsterdam; and sister, Yolanda Crodelle, of Poughkeepsie; and was predeceased by three sisters, Vienna Morini, Antoinette Lanzi and Maryann Kilinski and one brother, Ralph Gaetano Sr.

She worked at General Electric in Schenectady and Ellis Edson Beaudry Barrett & Chubb in Owego and was a full-time homemaker. She never missed an opportunity to send a thank you or birthday card.

Theresa greatly enjoyed cooking and spending time with family and many friends. She loved baking and sharing her cookies, pies and cakes with others, and always had a smile and a recipe to share. She will be remembered for her engaging sense of humor. We will miss her "hi hi" when she answered our telephone calls and her advice to misbehave.

She will be forever missed by her loving husband of 68 years, Fred Mattison; her four children, Barbara Morse, Janice Mattison (Alan Durfee), Fred Mattison Jr. and James Mattison; her four grandchildren, Danielle Mattison, Catherine Mattison, Fred Mattison III (Melody Mattison) and Pearl Batten (Tom Batten); her two great-grandchildren, Fred IV and Rebecca Mattison and many nieces and nephews.

She and Fred spent the last 20 years wintering in North Fort Myers, Fla., and made many dear friends there.

Theresa was a member of the Rosary Society and Saint Patrick's Church in Owego, N.Y.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Amsterdam, N.Y., on November 15, 2012 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church at 11 AM. Fr. Lawrence Decker as celebrant. A memorial Mass will be said in Owego, N.Y., at St. Patrick's Church Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Community Hospice of Amsterdam or a charity of your choice.

Interment will take place in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Amsterdam.

Funeral arrangements are in the care of Betz, Rossi and Bellinger Family Funeral home, 171 Guy Park Ave. Amsterdam, NY 12010. Memories and words of sympathy may be sent to the family online at www.brbsfuneral.com.
