Marian Gervais


Marian Gervais 85, passed away on Monday, July 1, 2019, surrounded by her family. They had been together camping as they had yearly for the past 51 years in the weeks leading up to the 4th of July. Marian was a loving “professional mom”, grandmother and great grandmother. She loved her home, her precious Hunter, sitting on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine, rocking on her swing, and listening to her birds.

She enjoyed playing bridge with the International Bridge Group, gardening, and loved entertaining and cooking for all. She was a member of Corpus Christi Church for over 50 years and enjoyed serving at the church food pantry with her friends.

Marian was predeceased by her loving husband Norman. She is survived by her sons Norman (Catherine) and Michael; daughters Lenore (Marvin), Shari (Michael) and Bonnie; grandchildren Jeffrey (Nicole), Norman (Amber), Nick, Philip, Laura (Cody), Carolyn (Matthew), Andy and Ben; great grandson Jack, and a great granddaughter on the way.

We would like to sing “Rock me Mama” to you; we hope you are dancing with Dad and enjoying “God’s most perfect food”, oysters.

Relatives and friends are invited to call on Sunday, July 7 from 2pm to 4pm at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa. A mass of Christian burial will be held 9am Monday, July 8 at Corpus Christi Church, 2001 Route 9, Round Lake. Burial will follow in Jonesville Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in memory of Marian to the Mayo Clinic Spinal Cord Injury Research Program. https://philanthropy.mayoclinic.org/donate

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Marian at Reel Seafood and had one of the best times with her talking and eating oysters. Although we only met on one occasion, she made an impact on us as we still talk about how wonderful she was and how much we enjoyed meeting her. Her love for life and family was so apparent. We are truly sorry for your loss and we are grateful for the opportunity to have met such a lovely woman.

What a truly kind, enthusiastic, smiling woman who always greeted me and others at school. Blessings on her as she joins the angels and the saints.
