Whitehall-Eleanor A. Brancati passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021, at Fort Hudson Nursing Home in the loving care of her Hospice nurse, Pat, sitting by her side.

Born February 17, 1934, she was the daughter of the late Fred S. Ablett and Juliette (Duchesne) Ablett.

Eleanor worked at the coat factory in Whitehall where she met her husband Dominick and then followed with a career at GE in Hudson Falls, until the birth of her first child.  She then became a stay-at-home mother to enjoy her final and favorite job.

She loved cooking and baking, canning tomatoes from the garden, a nice cup of hot tea after every dinner, a good game of pinochle and taking long walks.  She had an incredible laugh and humor that some would say only her grandchildren could adore!

She enjoyed life to the fullest with the biggest heart at best.  She would do anything for anyone and had so much love to give.

Besides her parents she is predeceased by her husband Dominick Dennis Brancati of Whitehall, one infant brother, Fred Ablett, sisters: Rose Marie Ablett, Patricia Gardner, Alice Rogers, Mable Jones and Eileen Gordon.

Eleanor is survived by her daughter Rose M. Clear and husband Pat of Glens Falls; sons Dominick D. Brancati III and his wife Darcie of Queensbury, Anthony M. Brancati and his wife Anne of Kingsbury; grandchildren; Denise Boiani, Michael (Shay) Brancati, Geno(Abby)Brancati, as well as her great grandchildren Dominick Savino Boiani, Leo Dominick Brancati and Sylvia Eileen Brancati, also her two beloved and beautiful sisters, Lillian (Donald)Parker, and Florence Wald, and several nieces and nephews that she loved and talked so much about.

A graveside service will be held at 10 am on Saturday, June 19, 2021, in the Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall, NY, with Deacon Robert Wubbenhorst officiating.

Memorial Donations can be made to the Alzheimer Association or Hospice Angels Foundation, online or by mail in lieu of flowers.
