Concetta T. “Connie” Maloney, 82, of Cohoes, beloved wife of over 65 years to William T. “Bill” Maloney of Cohoes, peacefully entered into eternal life surrounded and in the loving comfort of her family on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.
Born in Troy, she was the daughter of the late Matteo “Martin” Stravato and the late Lucia “Lucy” Faziola Stravato and was a graduate of Lansingburgh High School.
Connie’s greatest joy was her family. She was an outstanding, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and was involved in each one of her family member’s lives in more ways than one. Connie was an outstanding cook and so loved the traditions of all of the holidays. Connie and Bill were attached at the hip and loved hosting Sunday dinners until they began to go to either Lisa or Carol’s on Sunday’s. Connie also loved listening to her favorite music, especially to Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra while housecleaning on Saturday mornings.
Connie was also dedicated to her Church, devoted to her daily Rosary and to St. Theresa. She was a communicant of St. Augustine’s Church in Lansingburgh.
