Margaret “Midge” Armitage

March 2, 2017

Cornwall-on-Hudson

Margaret E. Armitage of Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY, entered into rest on Thursday, March 2.  She was 84.

Margaret (Midge) was an amazing mother, grandmother, wife and friend.  She always put everyone’s needs first.  Midge unselfishly gave her time repeatedly to those who needed her support and care.  She loved to laugh, her witty and often irreverent sense of humor always made those around her smile.  Midge was able to cross the generation gap and as a result, interacted seamlessly with all ages.  Whether you had the pleasure of knowing Midge for a lifetime or less, her impact on you was the same.  Midge loved her 40 year career at the Cornwall Hospital.  She started as a nurse’s aid, moved to Central Service and eventually became a phlebotomist.  She respected the medical team she worked so closely with during these years and would reminisce so fondly about them after her retirement.  And we cannot forget her love of the Yankees!  Midge would not miss a Yankee game on TV and knew most of the players’ stats.  Midge was one of the “greatest generation.”  She will be deeply missed.
