Rotterdam-Mrs. Sophie T. Faboskay, age 95, of Giffords Church Road, passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening, November 22, 2022, at Albany Medical Center. 

She was born on November 4, 1927 in Mechanicville, daughter of the late William and Antoinette (Skrzypek) Govereski.  Sophie was united in marriage with James Jay Faboskay in June of 1951 in Waterford, NY at St. Michael’s Church.  Mr. Faboskay passed away on Nov. 20, 2017, after a devoted and blessed union of 66 years.  As a young lady, Sophie worked for General Electric.  Following this employment, Sophie was a homemaker.  In her later years, she went back to work, being employed with the New York State Tax Dept.

Sophie enjoyed gardening and tending to her flowers. She spent many happy memories traveling and camping and she enjoyed taking several trips with her husband.  Many special times were spent with her family at her camp on Lake Pleasant.   Her foremost priority was spending time with family members, who will all miss her deeply.
