Bailey, Nathan Eugene  
Bailey, Nathan Eugene Nathan Eugene Bailey, 87, of Montour Falls and formerly of Alpine, passed away on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility. He was born in Van Etten at the home of his uncle George Staurowsky, on April 5, 1929, the son of the late George and Mary (Staurowsky) Bailey. As a child, Nate lived in Spencer. The family moved near Troy, PA for a few years, then on to Bellona. When he was about 16 years old, the family relocated to a small farm on East Hill Rd. in Spencer. Nate enlisted in the US Army in 1950, serving in the Korean Conflict as a Conductor on an ammunition train. After returning home from Korea, Nate married his sweetheart Harriet Jenkins in May 1953. He and Harriet lived in Elmira while Nate worked at the 7Up Bottling Company as a delivery driver for a few years. After starting a family, he and Harriet lived in Cayuta until 1965 then moved to Alpine. In the late 1950's, Nate's enthusiasm and work ethic earned him an offer from Stephens & Welty who owned a distributorship at the Elmira Bottling Company to drive, sell and deliver Pepsi-Cola. When a distributorship came up for sale several years later, Nate purchased it. His association with Pepsi-Cola and the Elmira Bottling Company lasted nearly 30 years until his retirement in the early 1980's. He and Harriet had separated in 1978 and eventually divorced in 1997. After retirement, Nate lived in Elmira and in Alpine, then settled in Kentwood, LA for about 15 years where he remarried. Upon his second wife's death, he returned to NY. Nate was a member of the American Legion and past member of both the Moose and the Elks. He was predeceased by his first wife, Harriet J. Bailey; his second wife, Dorthay (Hornbrook) Bailey; his siblings George Bailey, Harvey Bailey, Mary Lou (Bailey) Fink; and step siblings John Keenan and Marion (Keenan) VanDewark.

Bennett, Patricia M.  
Bennett, Patricia M. Patricia M. Bennett age 92, of 4th Street in Corning, NY died June 20, 2016 peacefully at home following a long life well lived. Pat was born on May 21, 1924 in Buffalo, NY to Albert and Marie (Schumacher) Bugman. She married Dr. Paul Bennett, the love of her life, on July 3, 1946 in Buffalo. She was raised in Buffalo, graduated from Holy Angels Academy in 1942 and then completed her college studies, graduating from D'Youville College with a bachelor's degree in biology in 1945. She worked briefly in the lab at Roswell Park Cancer Center before her marriage. She joined her husband in Germany during the occupation following WWII. Upon returning to the US, they moved to Corning where her husband, Paul, opened his dental practice in the fall of 1947. Together, they devoted themselves to raising their family of eight children. Family was everything to her, and she took great pride in teaching Catholic values, life skills, and a love of life-long learning to all eight of her children. Pat was exceptionally accomplished in sewing, quilting, gardening, crafts and needlework. She loved including her children in her many projects, teaching them to appreciate fine craftsmanship and the value of a job well done. Despite being a full time wife and mother to a very active family, she found time to give back to her church and the Corning community, serving on many boards of directors. These included Corning Civic Music Association, St. Mary's Parish Council, All Saints' Academy school board, the Heritage Village of the Southern Finger Lakes where she worked on the costume collection for 26 years, and the Corning Hospital Chapters. With a great eye for decorating, using antiques and recycling found objects, she lovingly restored their Victorian home in Corning as well as the family summer cottage on Keuka Lake. A great organizer, she always had several projects going and willing children and husband ready to help. A firm believer in the value of a good education, she always took great pride in the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. Pat is survived by four daughters, Patricia (Judge David) Kahl of Corning, Dr. Mary (Atty. Bruce) Petrie of Cincinnati, OH, Dr. Kathleen (Dr. Stephen Kondash) Bennett of Cincinnati, OH, and Barbara (Jean Claude) Kyrillos of San Diego, CA; son Dr. Gregory (Gina) Bennett of Orchard Park, NY; sister, Olive Engl of Kenmore NY; daughters-in-law, Patricia Bennett of Wilmington, NC and Betsy Bennett of Darien Ct.

Sarah, Daniel(Jilane), and Alec Petrie, Shannon (Kevin), Erin, and Dr. Clare McGorry, Alexandra, Christina, Carl and Bennett Kyrillos, Alex, Corey, Tom and Therese Kondash, great grandchildren Camerynn Kahl, Lachlan and Piers Ramm, many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her loving husband Paul W. Bennett II: sons Paul W. Bennett III Mark J. Bennett, and John "JT" Bennett, and by her brothers, Richard Bugman, Gerald Bugman and Msgr. John Bugman. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 1pm on Saturday June 25, 2016 at St. Mary's Church, 155 State Street in Corning. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery in Corning. There will be no calling hours. The family will provide flowers and suggest that any memorial donations be made in her name to Father Brennan's Scholarship Fund at All Saints Academy or a charity of one's choice. Pat's family wishes to thank the staff at Roswell Park Cancer Center and ECMC in Buffalo, NY, The Guthrie Cancer Center at the Corning hospital, Robert Packer Hospital, Absolute Care of Three Rivers, and Care First for their excellent care and compassion during her long battle with lymphoma. We also wish to thank all of the nurses and caregivers who made it possible to remain at home at the end of her illness, and especially Susan Rothenberger, and Valerie Van de Mark. The family has entrusted her care to Haughey Funeral Home, Inc. 216 E. First Street in Corning.
