Patsy Carpenter McCaughin

2/1/44 - 3/28/21

On this brightly moon lit night, Patsy was led up to the waiting arms of her Lord and Savior after fighting a continuous and courageous battle of health issues. She was the fourth child out of five and second daughter born to Harold and Theresa Capuano Carpenter.

She graduated from Port Henry High School. She loved to dance and won many dancing contests with her favorite partner, Joe Baker, which led them to dance on Dance Date on CBS Channel 3. She went on to graduate from OLVA in Plattsburgh. She wore many hats in her lifetime, working at Vanderhyder Hall in Troy, NY, marrying the love of her life and having a son and moving on to be Director of the RSVP program for the Diocese of Ogdensburgh in this part of Essex County. She won the prestigious Caritas Award in 1988. She was the president and treasurer of the Town of Moriah Senior Citizens Club for many years. She was also a member of the Catholic Daughters of America and the Port Henry Fire Dept. Auxillary.

Patsy is survived by her loving son Tim Sr. (Karen Cowin Clarke), adoring grandchildren TC(Aleia Scoville) and Maranda, the Light of her Life great grandson Kohlton, who will surely miss his GiGi. She is also survived by Amy Allen (Pete Calebrese) who was very dear to her, brother Joe Pat, sister Diane (Willard) Baker, brother-in-law Bill Gale, many nieces and nephews- one very special niece Nicole (Dale) Curran who Patsy was always there for, many cousins, especially Judy Hundley and Ronnie Carpenter, several long time friends, Ruth McDonough, Norma Manning, Isabelle Rotella, Reverand James Kane, Sally McCaughin, Archambeault, April and Charlie Holman and of course the old gang at the Moriah Town Hall.

She was predeceased by her parents, her former husband Chuck McCaughin, brother Skip Carpenter and sister Terry Carpenter Gale, a few close friends David Tromblee, Bruce Burrows, Joe Baker, Pam Sargent, Faith Whitford and Annabelle Waite.

Patsy was always family oriented whether it be family Bar-B-Ques, holiday dinners, birthdays or just visiting together. She also was very involved with the Senior Citizens and tried to be their best advocate ever. She will truly be missed.

The family wouls like to thank the Elizabethtown Hospital doctors, nurses and staff for the wonderful care they gave to Patsy; also the Moriah Ambulance Squad and Harland Funeral Home.

At her request there will be no services.
