Obituary of Margaret T. Dragoon
Margaret T. Dragoon, 85, of the LaValley Road, Mooers, NY, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at her home under the loving care of her family. She was born in Chazy, NY on June 21, 1936, the daughter of Wilfred and Elizabeth (Ebare) Roberts. Margaret was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and she will be greatly missed. There was nothing more important to her than her family. She took great joy in raising her children, taking care of her home, and visiting with her friends and loved ones. She was like a second Mother to many of her nieces and nephews. Margaret always looked forward to hosting family gatherings and holiday celebrations both at her home and at her camp on Lake Champlain. In earlier years, Margaret worked for the Slipper Factory in Mooers, NY. She also enjoyed volunteering her time and helping those in need. She was always there to lend a hand and pitch in when the need arose. Margaret was a member of the Mooers Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary for more than 20 years. When her children were young, she spent time as a school lunch volunteer for the local elementary school, and she also walked students to and from catechism class each week. Some of Margaret's favorite pastimes included bowling in the mixed league and in the women's auxiliary league, attending weekly bingo games, and later in life, she looked forward to travelling to the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort and trying her luck at the slot machines. She loved cleaning and organizing. She was in charge of that for Open House at Dragoon's for close to 60 years. Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 62 years, John "Jack" Dragoon; children Gary (Dina) Dragoon of Mooers, NY, Wayne (Linda) Dragoon of Mooers, NY, Scott (Debbie) Dragoon of Altona, NY, and Jennifer (Kelly) Cowan of Chateaugay, NY; 8 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Janet Roberts and Pauline Roberts; brother-in-law, Rufus Rabideau; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her siblings Evelyn Beebe, Raymond Francis Roberts, Pearl Babbie, Richard Roberts, Doris Trombly, Dora Filion, Morris Roberts, Rita Rabideau, Leita Lapier, Ronald Roberts, Elizabeth (Betty) Babbie and Gerald Roberts. There will be no public calling hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Ann's Church, Mooers Forks, NY with the Rev. Adrian Gallagher, celebrating. Family ask everyone to please wear a mask. Entombment will follow in the Town of Ellenburg Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Margaret T.
