The family would like to thank the staff of the Teresian House for the wonderful care they provided to Dorothy during her stay.

Funeral services will be held in the Hans Funeral Home, 1088 Western Ave., Albany, Saturday morning at 8:00, and from there to the Church of St. Clare, 1947 Central Ave., Colonie, at 9:00.  Relatives and friends are invited, and may call at the funeral home Friday from 4-8 p.m.  Interment will be in St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands.  The family suggests memorial contributions to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105; or to Disabled American Veterans (DAV), P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH  45250-0301; or to Teresian House, 200 Washington Ave. Ext., Albany, NY 12203.  To leave a message of condolence for the family or obtain directions to the funeral home, please visit www.HansFuneralHome.com.
