WHITEHALL, N.Y. — Georgette M. Cousineau, 72, of Skenesborough Harbor Apartments passed away on May 2, 2024 in the Rutland Regional Hospital following a short illness.

She was born on Sept. 23, 1951, at Porter Hospital in Middlebury, Vt., the daughter of the late George and Rita (Quesnel) Cousineau.

After retiring her enjoyments were visiting family, friends and doing community activities at Skenesborough Harbor Apartments.

She often helped with community meals as well as assisted with providing food. Georgette was an avid knitter, always making items for family and friends. (If you knew Georgette more than likely you will have something she had made).
