Dolan, Judith A. NORTH GREENBUSH Judith A. Dolan passed away unexpectedly, yet peacefully at her home, on May 20, 2018. Judy was born February 1, 1942, in Natick, Mass. to Gretchen and Willaird "Bill." She spent her youth in Massachusetts before her family moved to Baldwinsville, N.Y. in 1958. Graduating from high school in 1960, Judy went on to earn her college degree from SUNY Canton in 1962. She then worked at G.E. Electronics Park, Bristol Labs and Syracuse University before moving to Albany and taking a position at New York State United Teachers. Judy loved her work in the NYSUT Legislative Department, especially with VOTE/COPE where she connected with members statewide. In 1990, she was chosen as the VOTE/COPE honoree of the Year. She retired after 32 years of service in 2004. She traveled to Europe with family upon retiring. Loved ones that have preceded her on this path were her parents, Gretchen and Bill; her older brother, Jim; and nephew, Carey; as well as friends, Dennis and Caroline Lynch and Deb Franklin. Family who will be so sorely missing her include her brother, Mark (Carol); her sister-in-law, Carol (Booty); her niece, Linda Zbarcha; and great-nephew, Kelton Zbarcha. Judy was blessed with the dearest of friends, especially Beryl and Joe Rizzo and John Franklin and daughters. Her beloved cat, Callie, is also missing Judy's comforting and loving care. Judy will be remembered as a faithful and devoted friend to those lucky enough to know her. Judy was a tireless worker with a great sense of humor and a bit of a mischievous nature. She was quite adventuresome at times (except for trying new foods). She loved camping, game nights, the ocean, and cruises on Lake George. She was known to have a cocktail or two on occasion, often with hilarious results. She secretly harbored a wish to drive dump trucks which she fortunately only experienced one time, much to her parent's chagrin. Her family wishes to invite you to a celebration of her life well spent on Saturday, July 14, at her home on 2 Nadia Circle, Troy, from 4 to 6 p.m. Donations in Judy's name may be made to AnimalKind NY, 721 Warren St., Hudson, NY, 12534 or an animal shelter or your choice.
