Obituary of Marlene (Metott) Spacapan

MOHAWK- Mrs. Marlene (Metott) Spacapan, age 87, of Mohawk, NY passed away suddenly but peacefully on Monday, January 13, 2020. Marlene was born on February 9, 1932, in Little Falls, a daughter of the late Samuel & Margarette (Callahan) Metott. On June 2, 1951, she was married to Frank R. Spacapan, in St. Mary’s Parish House, Little Falls, and together they shared in 63 loving years. Marlene was educated in Mohawk schools and was employed as a Unit Secretary in Little Falls Hospital. She was a faithful member of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, also in Little Falls. Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Ronald and Patricia Spacapan, of Colchester, VT; her daughter and son-in-law, Joann and Lawrence Fannin, of Danbury, CT; her son-in-law, Roger Jette and his wife, Debra; her grandchildren, Kathleen and Steven McDonald, Kelly Spacapan, Kimberly Spacapan, Nicholas and Kristen Fannin, Jacquelyn Fannin, Wendy Boutin and William Hoag; sister-in-law, Ethel Lois Spacapan, of Tucson, Arizona. She also leaves five great-grandchildren, Bailie and Brennan McDonald and Lucas, Evelyn and Olivia Fannin. Besides her parents, Marlene was predeceased by her husband, Frank; daughter, Debra Jette; and granddaughter, Tammy Jette. A loving mother and homemaker, Marlene was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, most especially over the holidays. Some of Marlene’s favorite outings were shopping at Walmart, Christmas Tree Shop and Boscov’s. If she wanted to get your attention, she would yell out a big WOOHO which always worked. We will always remember her infectious laughter and boy did she love her sweets! Marlene made it a point to stock up on cinnamon buns before White Rose Bakery went on summer vacation. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation and gratitude to her niece and nephew, Linda and James Metott and many others who enabled Marlene to live independently in her beloved childhood home.
