Orry Schermerhorn was an AMAZING wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend.
A long time resident of Castleton on Hudson, NY, Orry's generosity knew no bonds. She was always the first to help. While most of her volunteering was done through her memberships with the Ladies Auxiliary of Castleton Fire Department, Castleton Boat Club and the Rensselaer Elks, she also donated her time, energy and finances to many organizations. So many, in fact, listing them all would be nearly impossible.
Orry tragically passed too soon, on November 30, 2020. Her family and friends take comfort knowing she is once again with her one true love Dean, who headed to heaven to prepare for her arrival in May, 2020. Orry has gained her angel wings and is looking down on us all with love.
Orry's family would like to thank all of her friends and neighbors, who were there for her during her six lonely months apart from her husband. Your visits and phone calls helped her through a difficult time, and we cannot thank you enough for being there for her. Due to the seriousness of COVID, we will have a Celebration of Life for her at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you "pay it forward" and complete random acts of kindness in remembrance of Orry.
