CLIFTON PARK Lorraine J. Nelson, 89, of Peck Lane died Friday February 20, 2015 at her residence after a long illness. Born in Waterford she was the daughter of the late Dominick and Paula Fannucci Gabriel and was a 1943 graduate of Waterford High School.

Lorraine had been employed for 20 years as a secretary at the Grand Union Co. in Waterford and retired in 1975. Prior to that she had been employed at the Watervliet Arsenal.

She was a veteran of the US Army and had been awarded the World War II Victory Medal. She was a communicant of St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Waterford and a former member of the Altar Society at the church.

Lorraine was the widow of Doran W. Nelson who died in 2013. She is the mother of Dan Joseph Nelson (Barbara) of Wilmington, NC and sister of Dominick Gabriel (Ann) of Waterford and the late Ann Laiacona. Also surviving is her grandson Adam Nelson as well as several nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend funeral services on Friday at 10 a.m. at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Broad & 6th St., Waterford. Interment with Military Honors will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Waterford.

Those who wish may make contributions to Mary’s Haven in care of the Philip J. Brendese Funeral Home, 133 Broad St., Waterford, NY 12188.

Dan would personally like to thank Hospice of Saratoga and the staff and many volunteers at Mary’s Haven. Also, a special thank you to my Uncle Gabe for his countless hours and devotion.
