Jean B.'s Story
NISKAYUNA Jean B. Kmieciak, 72, of Niskayuna, passed away Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, at Greene Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation, Catskill.
Raised and educated in Oneonta, Jean graduated from Albany Business College. She worked as an administrative assistant for General Electric Co. for more than 30 years and retired in 2000.
Jean cherished her family and friends. She especially enjoyed the long talks she shared with her special friend, Mary Southern, and always looked forward to lunches out with the Red Hat Society. Spending time at her summer home on Otsego Lake always meant trips to Brooks' Bar-B-Q and shopping in Cooperstown and at local craft shows.
She loved dogs. Throughout the years, she and her family raised several Labradors and Saint Bernards.
Jean is survived by her adoring husband, Robert, who she married July 7, 1966; their loving daughter, Cindy (Fredrick) Mastrogiovanni of Hinsdale, Massachusetts and cherished grandson, Dominic; sister, Janice (Terence) Hamilton-Smith of Lexington, Kentucky; and brother, Joseph Borden of Atlanta, Georgia.
Special thanks goes to all the doctors and nurses who cared for Jean throughout the years.
Funeral services will begin at 10:15 a.m., Tuesday, with prayers at Griswold Funeral Home, 1867 State St., Schenectady, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. to be celebrated at St. John the Evangelist Church, 806 Union St., Schenectady.
