ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. - Elizabeth Jean Priore, 91, of Rochester Hills, Michigan, died Sept. 30, 2017.
She was the loving wife of the late James (Jim) for 60 years; dear mother of Jim, Roger (Louisa), Allan (Nancy) Priore; cherished grandmother of Alexandra; sister of James (Joyce) Broe and (late) brothers and sisters Mary (Joe) Otvos, Gertrude (Thomas) Natoli, Joe (Lorraine) Broe, Gerald (Ruth) Broe and Thomas (Delores) Broe.
She attended St. Mary's Elementary School in Oneonta and graduated from Oneonta High School.
She received her nursing degree from Benedictine Hospital in Kingston, then worked as a registered nurse in several hospitals in New York and Michigan.
She and her beloved husband Jim lived in Michigan. They were active members of St. Irenaeus Catholic Church for more than 40 years where she taught sixth grade religious education for many years.
She was a devoted Catholic who lived her faith every day of her life. She explained her faith very simply, this way: "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. And you must love your neighbor as yourself."
Due to the closure of Saint Mary's Catholic Church for renovations, the Funeral Mass will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 28 at Saint James Episcopal Church, 305 Main St., Oneonta.
Burial will follow in the Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Emmons.
Memorial contributions, in lieu of flowers, in Elizabeth's name may be made to St. Vincent DePaul Chapter of St. Irenaeus Catholic Church, 771 Old Perch Road, Rochester Hills, MI 49309.
Local arrangements are with Lewis, Hurley & Pietrobono Funeral Home, 51 Dietz St., Oneonta.
