Mary E. Bove Obituary
MECHANICVILLE - Mary E. Bove passed away Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, at her home.
She was 85.
Born June 19, 1927, in Mechanicville, Mary was a lifelong resident and daughter of the late Matthew and Elizabeth Mohan Mellon. She attended Mechanicville High School, graduating in 1945.
Married for 53 years to her loving husband, Frank G. Bove, Mary worked by his side for more than 55 years and was known as the true "Matriarch" of G.A. Bove & Sons Fuels. She loved to cook for her family and friends, as only she knew how, and would always make sure that the "boys" in the shop had a sandwich and hot soup to fill their bellies. Mary loved her community.
She was a longtime member and served on the board of directors for the Mechanicville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Mechanicville Community Center and the Feast of the Assumption Committee, was a founding member and treasurer of the Mechanicville Family Day Committee and was a communicant of Assumption-St. Paul Parish.
Mary and Frank loved to take long Sunday drives with Anthony and Jan Sylvester that would take them to wherever the road might bring them, sometimes stopping at the Saratoga Casino to try her luck. Mary had that way about her to make whoever she was with or talking with feel like they were the most special person in the world. She was the true epitome of unconditional love and friendship to all.
In addition to her parents, Mary was predeceased by her son, James G. Bove; and her four brothers, Michael, Matthew, Charles and James Mellon.
Mary is survived by her husband, Frank G. Bove; one son, Frank A. Bove; her sister, Patricia Mellon; one grandson, Anthony James Bove; one granddaughter, Alanna Curcio; daughter-in-law, Donna Bove-Curcio; brother-in-laws, Vincent Bove and his wife, Barbara, and John Bove and his wife, Donna; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Relatives and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, at All Saints on the Hudson South Church, (St. Paul's), 121 N. Main St., Mechanicville.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, at All Saints on the Hudson South Church.
Burial will follow in the family plot at St. Paul's Cemetery in Mechanicville.
Memorial donations may be made in Mary's memory to the Mechanicville Family Day Committee, P.O. Box 529, Mechanicville, NY 12118.
Arrangements are under the direction of William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes, 628 N. Broadway, Saratoga Springs; 584-5373.
