COHOES Charlotte A. St. Gelais, 77, of Breslin Ave. entered into eternal rest Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020 at St. Peter’s Hospital.

Born and raised in Cohoes, Charlotte was a lifelong resident. She was the daughter of the late Matthew and Helen Brzuska Gula. She graduated from Cohoes High School and worked at the former Barclay Home Products. She also was a dedicated childcare provider for many.

Charlotte was known for her talent making ceramics and jewelry, and she simply loved socializing with friends and family. She was also a lifetime member and past president of the Polish American Assoc. on Willow St. in Cohoes.

Charlotte was the wife of Ronald “Satch” St. Gelais who passed away in 2018. She was the loving mother of Kimberly LaCross (Frank Smith) of Scotia and Melissa A. Smith (Bill) of Cohoes; the sister of the late Donald Gula; the sister in law of Marianne Gula; the grandmother of Jennifer Cline (Philip), Brianna Smith (fiancé, Matt Swartout), Matthew and Nicholas Smith; and the great grandmother of Izabella Latimer and Jaxson Cline. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews, many special loving friends and by her beloved pets, Suey and Rusty.

Relatives and friends may visit with her family Monday from 4-7 p.m. at the Fitzgerald Funeral home, 105 Vliet Blvd., Cohoes. Masks will be required and social distancing and occupancy regulations will be observed.

Memorial contributions may be made in Charlotte’s memory to the Hudson Mohawk Humane Society, 3 Oakland Ave., Menands, NY 12204

So sorry for your loss. Charlotte and I have been friends since we were children in grade school. We lived in the same neighborhood and I practically lived at her house. Her grandmother and parents were very kind to me. Charlotte and I share many, many childhood memories of growing up in Cohoes among our Polish relatives. There is no friend like an old friend. Will never forget her. Remembering you, Joyce (Pratt) Kobasa.

Kim and Missy,
I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mom. I have many happy memories of you girls and your Mom. Because of what’s going on, I will not be able to come to the wake, but wanted you to know I’m thinking of you and your families. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love, Judy Grimsley
