MECHANICVILLE - Margaret M. Miranda, 95, of Brickyard Road, died Tuesday morning, Oct 13th, in the safety of her home, after an extended illness.
Born in Mechanicville, May 20, 1925, daughter of the late George and Mary Ontkush, "Marge" was a 1943 graduate of Mechanicville High School. She worked at General Electric in Schenectady, until she and her husband began raising her family. After her children were grown and on there own, she was a seasonal employee for the NYS Dept of Tax and Finance for some years.
For many years, she and family would spend summers at Star Lake, NY, a place very dear to her and family.
"Marge" loved the company of her family and friends, enjoyed traveling throughout her life with those family members and friends. "Marge" was a graceful lady, loving wife, mother and grandmother, who was always looking to offer anything she had to others. She was a genuine and caring friend to so many. She will always be remembered and deeply missed.
A communicant of Assumption-St. Paul Church, an auxiliary member of the Mechanicville-Stillwater Elks Lodge, "Marge" just enjoyed entertaining others.
Sadly she was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Louis J. Miranda, who died in 2007, her sons Louis J. Miranda, Jr and David Miranda, and her daughter Diane Nelson and brother Edward Ontkush.
Survivors include her daughter Margaret and David DeVoe of Saratoga Springs, son Robert Miranda of Mechanicville and daughter-in-law Julie Miranda. Grandchildren: Karen and David DeVoe, Jr, Allison Karcher, Sarah Hines, Paul and Mark Miranda, Amy Cremo and Daniel Nelson, along with great grandchildren: Elena, Sydney, Noah, Paige, Jack, Emma, Abby, Leanna, Ava, David and Grayson, along with a number of nieces, nephews and their families.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday at Noon at All Saints on the Hudson Church, 121 No. Main St, Mechanicville with burial to follow at Saratoga National Cemetery. Due to Pandemic concerns, there will be no formal viewing and family would welcome all to Mom's Mass. Social distancing and mask wearing will be implemented.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the P.A. Miranda Scholarship, Clifton Fine School, Star Lake, NY 13690.

Our whole family is going to miss Marge. She has been the matriarch of neighborhood for decades. She was such a strong lady losing her three children and husband never broke her. Fran and I were very happy we had a chance to see her before she passed. We LOVED HER-there was only one Marge. Bless your family. God will be there with you. And HE was there for her too! What a party they all must be having!!!!

Margaret, Bob and family,

Sincere sympathy to you and yours on the passing of your Mom. I have some many fond memories of Mom and Dad from my years growing up in the Isabella and Miranda clan. I recall the memorable times with your Dad and Mom, Uncle Ennio, Aunt Jean, Rose and Yac, Uncle Freddy, Aunt Helen, Uncle Eddie, Aunt Helen, Uncle Ralph, Aunt Lorraine, Aunt Agnes, Uncle Carmen, my dad (Hugo, Kathleen), and the Miranda’s. Fun times, family and enjoying life was the mantra. Recently I began going through thousands of photos, slides and other remembrances of my life and found many pictures of Mom and Dad at many milestone events of my life, my wedding, my political fundraisers, family gatherings, unfortunately sad times also. One of my favorites is me walking down the aisle at my wedding, glancing to my right and there was Mom, Dad, Gloria DeSantis, Ralph and Tony Volpicelli and many of the Miranda’s. All with effervescent smiles, proud, loyal and loving. Devoted to family, community, faith and the Good Lord is what I remember about Mom and Dad. Although Mom is now home with her Lord Savior, reunited with loved ones I’m confident that her legacy will endure forever providing you courage, strength and hope during these difficult times. May God Bless you. Always smiling will always be one of the imprints in my mind of Mom and Dad.

Tommy Isabella (oldest son of Dr. Hugo and Kathleen Isabella).

Cousin Warren DeSantis also sends his deepest sympathy.

Mrs. Miranda was one of the kindest and most delightful women I knew both when I was a classmate of her daughter, Margaret DeVoe, and in recent years as I have spent my summers in Mechanicville. The world will be a sadder place without her smile and sincere relationships with all who knew her.
