Martha A. Dunn

By | Obituaries

MECHANICVILLE — Heaven earned a feisty angel on Monday, April 21. Martha lost her battle to cancer that she fought so quietly.

Martha was a 1960 graduate of Mechanicville High School. She worked for the NYS Deptartment of Tax and Finance and Saratoga State Park.

She cared for so many throughout her life. Martha was a great friend and never hesitated to help someone. She was a crazy, fun loving lady. We were all so blessed to have her in our lives.  She was her grandchildren’s favorite cheerleader. Martha loved a fire in her backyard while enjoying a Manhattan and sneaking alcoholic beverages to her grandchildren. She was affectionately known as Ba to her grandchildren. She loved telling everyone she was a witch.

Survivors include her loving husband of 51 years, James Dunn; her sons Michael (Paula) Dunn and Patrick Dunn of Mechanicville; daughter, Meg (Tom) Badali of Schuylerville; daughter-in-law, Cathy Dunn; grandchildren; Joshua, Ryan and James Dunn, Heath and Seth Dunn, Anthony, Matthew, Sam Badali and Jessica (Michael) Hipwell; one great-granddaughter, Jayden Dunn; and close family friend, JamesMcCaffrey, who was like a son to her. She is also survived by her sisters Joanne (Larry) Catallo and Noreen (Edward) Parissi of Waterford; sisters-in law Ann (Vernon) Perkins and Rosemary Garland; and brother-in-law, Marty (Sue) Dunn.

Martha was predeceased by her son, James Dunn Jr. in 1995.
