HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. -- Katrine A. “Tiny” Farrara, 83, died Wednesday July 30, 2003 at the Hoosick Falls Health Center, where she spent a very special couple of years. While at the Health Center she was cared for and loved by all.

She was born July 13, 1920 in Hoosick Falls daughter of the late Raymond and Lucina (Kyer) Roys. She was educated at Hoosick Falls High School graduating in 1937. Tiny married the love of her life, Anthony “Rick” Farrara in 1938 and remained devoted to him until his death in 1992.

Tiny worked for several years with her husband at Eagle Bridge

Machine and Tool Company, the business they started together in 1949. She also worked for H.A. Mosley and Sons in Eagle Bridge for many years. Her other career besides raising her family was with the Eagle Bridge Post Office where she worked for many years. This was the perfect job for Tiny as she was able to keep up on all the happenings in Eagle Bridge. This also enabled her to keep the “Tiny Wilma Hotline” busy for years to follow.

Tiny and Rick upon retirement spent their winters socializing and fishing in Lake Wales, Florida.

Survivors include her children and their spouses, Richard and Penny Farrara of North Bennington, Vt., Robert and Anne Farrara, Raymond and Laura Farrara, Margaret and Chet LeStage and Alyce and Jack Norton all of Eagle Bridge, Toni and Faik Ustun of Brussels, Belgium and Eduardo and Mireya Salcedo of Florida, three sister-in-laws Sister Margaret Farrara of Eagle Bridge, Mary Casey of North Hoosick, and Carrie Farrara of Hoosick Falls; also survived by 18 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by a sister Gwendolyn Curley.
