Margaret Helen Gaff

August 14, 1933 - January 30, 2019

Margaret Helen Gaff Margaret Helen Gaff born Aug. 14, 1933, the daughter of Lawrence Gaff and Anna Young in Tupper Lake, N.Y. She entered into eternal life with her Lord and savior and family by her side on Jan. 30, 2019.
Margaret dedicated her life to raising her children and being a loving wife. She enjoyed fishing, bowling, singing and especially dancing - she could Jitterbug like no other! Most of her friends and family did not know that when she was younger she would occasionally sing with the "Tilou Bonhomme" band. In her later years in life some of her favorite pass time activities were watching The Food Network and Jeopardy and scratching those scratch off tickets! Margaret was predeceased by her parents, her spouse, James Gebo Sr., her sister, Shirley Seney and brother, Robert Gaff. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Margaret and Michael McCorry, Ida and Harold Duval, James and Marybeth Gebo, Charles and Judi Gebo, Anthony and Elleen Gebo, Hope Anne and Terry Nold. Also survived by her siblings, Marie Rice, Paul Gaff, Joe Gaff and Lawrence Gaff - in addition to numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Funeral arrangements are being handled by Jay Heald Funeral Home, Plattsburgh, N.Y. The family would like to invite all who would like to join us and celebrate her life on Feb. 5, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m., 166 Smith Street, Dannemora, N.Y.

My Dear “Hopie Pie”, I have no idea what this must be like for you and won’t pretend too. But I want you to know I’m here for you and all ears for anything you want to share or shout. If you don’t want too then I can happily talk your ears off with my own issues or latest drama . (Or send more crazy Animoji’s) . I know you will be surrounded by your family , but I Wish I could be there with you as you celebrate the life of your sweet mama! Always know that I love you and will keep you all close in thought and prayer! Xoxo

Dearest Peggy, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know in my heart your Mom is resting peacefully and her spirit is shinning bright on you and your family. I remember meeting your Mom twice many years ago and she was so very kind to me; a total stranger. But that actually didn't surprise me much being I had already met you with your outgoing and spirited loving nature while caring for my Mom, which you did in such an Awesome manner. Remember all the wonderful times you had with your Mom Peggy, they will carry you through... and to all your family members, my prayers are with all of you as you journey through this time of sadness. But please be joyful in knowing she's no longer in any f...orm of any pain. God Bless you, you are all in my prayers.Read more
