After 59 years of successful business and service, Amalia "hung up her scissors" and retired. Being a people person, she accepted a position in the plant and floral department at Lowe's in Clifton Park.

I was so sad to her about Amalia's passing. She was such a lively member of my MHS class of 1957. I always enjoyed talking to her about the City and her family and business. It was such a delight to see her and visit when she worked at George's in Latham. Same spirit as in high school! She will be missed.

Dear Sandra, Nancy and family, so sorry to just find out about Amalia's passing. She was a wonderful cousin and person. She was forever trying to help me be clear on the Laurenzo relationships. I last ran into her at Lowe's and she was always speaking of her nieces/nephew's ; All of whom she loved dearly. We were planning to meet for lunch then "covid " came and we never did. May your memories of her be forever in your hearts. Judy Ceremuga
