Deborah Sidney Obituary

Gloversville - Deborah A. Sidney, 70, of Gloversville and formerly of St. Johnsville and Herkimer passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 22, 2024, at her home.

Deborah was born on June 14, 1953, in Amsterdam, NY, the daughter of the late Kermit and Margaret (Kilts) Weaver. She was a graduate of St. Johnsville High School, class of 1971 and later Deb earned an associate degree from Fulton Montgomery Community College.

For many years, Deb was employed at Fulmont Mutual Insurance Company in Johnstown, NY where she lastly held the position of treasurer and CFO.

Deb was a devoted sister, a loving and caring mother and grandmother. She treasured the quality time she spent with her family. Deb is survived by two sons and one daughter: Marc Sidney and wife Jennifer of Ballston Spa. Kristi (Sidney) Annerstedt and husband Niklas of Värmdö, Sweden. Jeffrey Sidney and wife Stacie of Cary, NC. Furthermore, Deb is survived by two brothers: Kermit Weaver Jr. and wife Vivian of Oneonta. Roger Weaver and wife Michele of Schoharie. Lastly, and a true light in Deb’s life, she is survived by her seven precious grandchildren, Jack, Anna, and Ella Sidney; Alexander and Amelia Annerstedt; and Lyla and Brooks Sidney. As well as 5 nieces and nephews, Tracey Marmet and David Weaver, and Zachary, Lauren, and Michael Weaver, along with many more great nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Deb was a remarkable woman with a heart of gold. She never passed judgment, instead she accepted others for who they were. No one was a stranger to Deb, and she would happily chat with anyone she met. You could always count on Deb to butcher a name, but she never forgot a face. She loved to give gifts, had an infectious laugh, and a great sense of humor. Deb didn’t think twice about helping others and gave selflessly back to her community. She was proud of the time she spent on the Herkimer Little League board. She also helped to establish the youth basketball program in Herkimer and coached girls’ soccer (AYSO). She had an amazing ability to make anyone around her feel comfortable and she never missed a chance to make sure everyone was happy and having fun.

Deb was truly fun loving. She loved to travel, never said no to a rollercoaster ride (Loop de Loop and Superman) or a swim at Myrtle Beach or even in the freezing Baltic Sea. Over the years she had fond memories from her trips to Maine, Maryland, Myrtle Beach, Seattle, North Carolina, and her most recent trip to Sweden, in December of 2023. Deb enjoyed completing her daily Anacrostics crossword puzzles and playing cards with her grandchildren. Cooking was a beloved pastime. She was always game to make any recipe that was requested but she will always be remembered for her miracle-working chicken soup. Deb also loved singing. Her favorite tunes were the oldies or anything by Barry Manilow, and the fact that the words often came out wrong didn’t worry her at all (Feliz Mariatt!).

Deb was a wonderful neighbor and also had the best neighbors “across the road”. The family would like to say a special thank you to Deb’s dear friend and neighbor, Dana Hyde, for his constant support during her time living on Second Avenue.

The family will be receiving relatives and friends on Friday, March 1, 2024, from 2 - 4 pm at the Vincent A. Enea Funeral Service (next to the Masonic Lodge), 20 Bridge St., St. Johnsville, NY. A prayer service will follow at 4:00 pm. Burial at West St. Johnsville Cemetery will take place at a future date.
