Legacy of Love
"A wife, a mother, a grandma too, this is the legacy we have from you. You taught us love and how to fight, You gave us strength, you gave us might. A stronger person would be hard to find, And in your heart, you were always kind. You fought for us all in one way or another, Not just as a wife, not just as a mother. For all of us you gave your best, Now the time has come for you to rest. So go in peace, you've earned your sleep, Your love in our heart, we will eternally keep."
She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Joseph E. Pidgeon of Oneonta; her children, Jeffrey Pidgeon, Milynda Pidgeon Dilello and Timothy (Janice) Pidgeon, all of Oneonta; grandchildren, Jessica Pidgeon, Melissa (Bart) Knapp, Lindsay (Joseph) and Hannah (Matthew) Pidgeon, Anthony, Tyler and Jennifer Dilello, Brendan (Chiharu) and Zachary Pidgeon; five great-grandchildren; brother, John Craver of Virginia Beach; sister, Paula of Virginia; sister-in-law, Marlene Pidgeon of Oneonta; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
