Obituary Condolences

CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- Gladys May Baratto, 86, died peacefully at home on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2005, after a long illness. She was the beloved wife of Albert J. Baratto.

Born Sept. 28, 1919 in Aberdare, South Wales, U.K., she was the daughter of Frank and Elizabeth (Davis) Rule. While serving with the Woman’s Royal Air Corp., she met her husband. They were married in Arundel, England on Jan. 1, 1945. She returned with him to the United States, arriving on March 17, 1946. She became a United States citizen in the early 1950s.

For a while she worked as a housekeeper for Franklin McLenithan and in the Cambridge Central School cafeteria. She spent many hours, as did all the family, working the Baratto popcorn wagon that was always parked in front of the Grange Hall, where Rite Aid is now. After the family opened the Burger Den Restaurant, she provided many recipes for delicious home-style dishes that are still being used today.

Her hobbies included sewing and knitting. She enjoyed being a member of the Home Bureau.

The most important part of her life was her family. She raised her children with care and concern and loved being a grandmother.

She was a communicant of St. Patrick’s Church, Cambridge.

Along with her husband, she is survived by four children and their spouses, Michael and Peggy Baratto of Hoosick Falls, Anthony and Nora Baratto of Latham, Greg and Lisa Baratto of Cambridge and Dale and Mark Round of Warrensburg and eight grandchildren.

Friends and relatives are invited to call today, Dec. 2, 2005, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main St.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 10 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Church, 17 South Park St., with burial following at St. Patrick’s Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to either Cambridge Valley Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 52, Cambridge, NY 12816; Hospice of Washington County, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, NY 12839; or the American Heart Association, P.0. Box 3049, Syracuse, NY 13220.
