ALBANY – Tomasina “Tommy” (Fallone) Kilmade, 92, of Albany, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 28, 2015, at the Daughters of Sarah Nursing Center. Mrs. Kilmade was born in Mount Vernon, New York and lived most of her life in the Capital District. She was a graduate of Voorheesville High School, and employed by the Duffy-Mott plant in Voorheesville until after World War II. Beginning in the early 1960s, she was a cook in the Guilderland Central School District for many years. Tommy’s talent for cooking resulted in her family and friends having many memorable meals and treats over the years. The dozens of cookies from Granny’s kitchen were her grandchildren’s favorite. She also was a long-time communicant of Holy Cross Church in Albany.
Tommy was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Daniel J. Kilmade, Jr. in 2009. She is survived by her children Anna-Marie Kilmade Tilghman (William S. Tilghman) of Springfield, Virginia, and Michael Kilmade (Debbie) of Albany; her grandchildren Daniel McCarthy, Kevin McCarthy, Christopher Kilmade, Joseph Kilmade (Jessica), and Maureen Kilmade (Erwin Vandenabeele); her sister-in-law Joan Rock Wallace; and several great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
