1947 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
Gretchen Rose Graves Nolet

1947-2012 HOOSICK FALLS, NY Gretchen Rose Graves Nolet 65, died Sunday August 12 surrounded by her loving friends and family after a long illness.

She was born on August 8, 1947, daughter of the late John and Marion (Bolster) Graves and raised in Manchester, Vt.

Gretchen worked for many years at Dorset Nursing as a home health aid. She later worked at the Equinox Hotel for several years, before she went to work at Stratton Mountain where she was the Housekeeping Supervisor for sixteen years, before retiring due to illness. She was known by all to say it how it was and was loved by many for doing so. Gretchen never turned anyone away that needed a helping hand. She was known as Gretch, Auntie itch, Nana or Mom by most of us. She loved a bargain and would often go to tag sales and flea markets.

Her ultimate joy was spending time with her family and her cats. She was a hard working single mother that raised her girls and often put her needs last.

Survivors include her daughters Marty Nolet, fiance Scott Cummings of White Creek, N.Y., and Kelly McGarvin husband Ray of Hoosick Falls, N.Y., her grandchildren Ashley, Lindsay, Kylie, Logan, Liam, Christian, Timothy, Morgan and her cat Fiona. Gretchen is also survived by her brother John Graves of Pownal, Vt., Peter Graves wife Louise of Newbury Port, Mass., sister Marty Starr husband Malcolm of Providence, R.I., sister-in-law Myra Graves of Bennington, Vt., and many loving nieces and nephews.

FUNERAL NOTICE: A celebration of Gretchen's life will be held on Thursday August 16 at the Back Street Saloon on Water Street in Hoosick Falls from 6 to 8 p.m. Graveside services will be Friday August 17 at 11 a.m. at the Factory Point Cemetery in Manchester, Vt.

Arrangements are under the care of the Mahar Funeral Home, 43 Main Street in Hoosick Falls, NY.
