Noreen E. May, 69, of Galway, NY, passed away Thursday, January 9, 2014, at home. Noreen was born in Amsterdam, NY, on January 24, 1944, the fourth of six children to Schuyler and Evelyn Vandenburgh. She was married on June 4, 1960, to Robert May; they celebrated 53 years of marriage. Noreen was a bookkeeper, working for various businesses.
Noreen loved to spend time with family and enjoyed bird watching. She always had a kind word and a sympathetic ear.
"An angel lived among us, a gift from God above. She showered us with kindness and shared with us her love. She's gone to live with Jesus. But she's here with us today, smiling down on every one of us and telling us she's OK."
Noreen is survived by her husband, Robert; her four children, Wanda May of Fonda, Theresa Watrobski (Robert McGuire) of Broadalbin, Laurie King (Danny) of Edinburg, and Raymond (Aimee) May of Broadalbin; also 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
