Jeannette "Hime" Colton, born September 20, 1963 in Roscoe, NY. Lifelong care giver, passed into eternal peace on August 24, 2019 at home surrounded by her family.
Hime had a zest for life like no other. She was a diehard NY Yankees fan, and later a NY Giants fan. She was not afraid to hold her tongue and expected the same in return. She spent her life taking care of and giving to others. Her 8 grandchildren were the light of her life, with the admiration going both ways. She was not just "Mom" to her 5 daughters, but to the many she took in and cared for. A choice that would be most difficult for others, she never thought a second about a home or a dollar to someone who needed it. Her presence was tremendous in the lives of those who were fortunate enough to share their time with her. She will be greatly missed.
Hime is survived by her 5 daughters; Amanda and her wife, Hope Irwin-Brown of Kerhonkson NY, Jamie and her husband Don Bertholf of North Branch, NY, Stephanie and her husband Eric Staudt, Bionca and her husband Wayne Somers, Chena Colton and her companion Shane, and 1 adoptive son, Darien Nietzel. All of Livingston Manor, NY
8 grandchildren; Ashley Bertholf, Carliyah Somers, Eric Staudt Jr, Cory Somers, Leah Staudt, Jordon Bertholf, Colton Staudt, and Lucas Bertholf.
10 Brothers and Sisters; Joyce Kleingardner, Stanton Banks, Larry Banks, Sharon Jersey, Delores "Peanut" Irwin, Elmer Irwin, David Irwin, William Irwin, Lois Gildersleeve, and Delois "Skip" Irwin.
And one very special friend, Dorothy Ross, along with many nieces and nephews.
Hime was predeceased by her husband, Stewart J. Colton, her mother Marjorie Irwin, and father Delois "John" Irwin
