By | Obituaries

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Doris Venner Haberland, 79, a longtime resident of Colonie, passed away Monday, December 23 at Wesley Health Care Center in Saratoga Springs, after a long and difficult battle with Dementia. She is now back in the loving arms of her husband, Raymond, who predeceased her in July of 2011.

Doris was born on February 6, 1934 in Schroon Lake to Earl and Dora Venner, “one of the coldest days on record,” as she would tell. Doris moved to Albany at the age of 16 and worked in downtown Albany at Lerner’s and Whitney’s.

She was married to her beloved husband, Raymond Frederick Haberland on May 5, 1952 in Amarillo, Texas, where Raymond was stationed in the Air Force. 

Their married life together spanned 59 years.  They were blessed with three sons who survive her: Steven (Elaine) of Cody, Wyoming, David (Brenda) of Delanson and Mark (Lynn) of Greenfield Center.

She is also survived by her granddaughter Dena (Don) DeLude of Latham and their children Jase and Alana, grandson Shane Haberland of Denver, Colorado, granddaughter Gina Carbone, great granddaughter Daphne and great grandson Nicholas.

Doris was loved by many nieces and nephews, her longtime and best friends Fran Maurel, of Colonie, and Miles and Marilyn Seeley of Schroon Lake. She also had much love for “daughter” Karen (Mike) Gasiorowski of Clifton Park.

Doris was a wonderful, loving and caring woman who had a zest for life, friends and family. She and Ray loved spending their summers in Schroon Lake.
