In Memory of Dolores E. Hague
July 9, 2018
Resided in Utica, NY
Dolores E. Hague, wore out at the age of 91, on July 8, 2018.
She resided at Acacia Village of the Masonic Home Community in Utica, and passed away at the Siegenthaler Hospice Center in New Hartford.
Dolores was born in Lafayette, IN, moved to Congers, NY at the age of 10 where she met the love of her life, Albert Hague. They married in Congers on Sept. 11, 1948 and cherished each other ever after. They subsequently lived in New City, West Nyack and Blooming Grove, NY, Canterbury, NH, and Florida, as well as summering for many years at Masonic Camp in Bear Mountain, NY.
She and Al loved to travel - they skied the Alps, the Rockies and Canada, as well as much of the Northeast. In later years, with their Airstream trailer, they visited every state in the continental US, reveling in all of their adventures.
Dolores was an accomplished seamstress and created most of her three young daughters' clothes as well as her own. She was an avid reader, bridge player, skier, but most of all, a wife and mother. Raising her four children was her proudest accomplishment. She has been repaid in spades by having eleven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren so far.
She was predeceased by her husband of fifty-nine years, Albert Hague, and will be forever missed by her children, Sharon Hawthorne and husband Daniel, Diane Baldwin and husband Michael, Jeanne Garr and husband Michael, and Dana Hague and wife Mary. She is also survived by her grandchildren and spouses, Elizabeth and Aaron Saft, Michael Baldwin Jr., Lauren and Douglas Chivers, Torrey and Zachary Fischer, Albert Garr, Kathryn Kraft and Keith Wilkins, Daniel and Carrie Garr, Nicholas Baldwin, Ryan Garr and Zoe Adelstein, Theresa and Shane Press, and Jeanette and Andrew Hetherington. Dolores is also survived by her great-grandchildren, and sister-in-law Carolyn Donaldson and family.
A memorial service and celebration of the life of Dolores will be held at St. James' Episcopal Church, 9 Williams St., Clinton, NY, on Saturday morning, August 11, at ten o'clock, with a gathering and reception immediately following at Acacia Village, Building B Community Room, Utica, NY.
Those wishing to express an act of kindness and remembrance may consider a donation to the Siegenthaler Hospice Center, the Masonic Care Community, or your local public library.
Arrangements are with Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral and Cremation Services, New Hartford.
