Cathleen Posson Obituary

Cathleen Posson, of Posson Hill Extension, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, November 16, 2023. Born December 4, 1947, in Schenectady, she was the daughter of the late Earl W. and Verna (Elliott) Ellis of Middleburgh, NY.

Cathy graduated from Middleburgh Central School and worked for the NYS Division of Parole in Albany, from the summer of 1967 until her retirement on July 1, 2006. She was a member of the Middleburgh Pilgrim Holiness Church, where she taught Sunday School for many years and served as Sunday School Superintendent.
