CORTLAND – Dona Marie Tordoff Maddren, age 100, died peacefully at the Groton, NY Community Health Care Center on Wednesday, June 19, 2019.
She was born in Mechanicville, NY on February 1, 1919 to the late Ethyl Dormandy Tordoff and Henry “Harry” Tordoff.
She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, William Maddren, and siblings, Betty (Douglas) Stewart, Jean (John) Egan, Caryl (Robert) Doe, Dr. Harrison (Jean) Tordoff and Joan (Serafino) De Lucia. She was also predeceased by grandsons, Joel Maddren and Michael Maddren.
She is survived by her sons, William (Julie), David (Nancy) and Garry (Mary); seven grandchildren; seven great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.
As a child, her dream was to be a wife and mother, a dream that she lived. Dona was a great bridge player and golfer until failing eyesight caused her to give up golf at age 85. Dona loved her family deeply, as well as her church and the Boston Red Sox.
A private family service will be held at a later date at Hudson View Cemetery in Mechanicville,
