Gloria Hart

December 31, 1929 - June 14, 2014

DANNEMORA — Gloria Hart, 84, of Manley Street, Dannemora, passed away on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at her residence. She was born Dec. 31, 1929, in Champlain, the daughter of William and Belle (Chenvert) Castine.

Gloria attended and graduated from St. Mary's School in Champlain. She married Gerald "Pete" Hart at St. Mary's Church. When her mother passed away at a very early age, Gloria took over the reins of taking care of the family farm, known as Ridge View Farms. She then worked for Grand Union, and then later for Ting's Restaurant in Dannemora for over twenty years. Even today, her famous saying that will always be remembered is "Peas, Beans, Pickled Beets, Coleslaw!"

She was a member of the Saranac and Mooers Senior Citizens, a parishioner of St. Joseph's Church and a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Daughters.

Gloria leaves behind her son, Gary Hart and his wife Bernadette, who she always thought of as more of a daughter than a daughter-in-law; and two loving companions whom she loved, Blackjack and Bourbon. Gloria also has an extended family that she loved very much, Mike and Diane Lynch, Eric Lynch, Ryan Lynch and his companion Samantha Signor, Miranda and Carl Benware, and the light of her heart, Brock Benware. Gloria is also survived by her siblings, Carol Castine, John Castine and his companion Jean Roberts, William and Theresa Castine, Gerald and Lorraine Castine, Wendell and Emily Castine, Kenneth and Kapine Castine, Wayne and Pauline Castine, Donald and Georgianna Castine; sister-in-laws, Beatrice Castine, Viola Castine, and Linda Castine; and several nieces, nephews and friends.

Gloria was predeceased by her husband, Gerald "Pete" Hart; her parents; siblings, Danny, Donna, Harold, Francis, Stanley, Bobby and Peggy Castine; sisters-in-law, Carol Castine and Lillian Castine; and the best dog in the whole world, Brutus.
