Dorothy Happle Obituary

Dorothy H. Happle

Oneida-Dorothy H. Happle, 93, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at the Wynn Hospital.

Dorothy was born on March 2, 1930, the daughter of the late Joseph F and Marguerite Denison Happle.  She was a lifelong resident of Oneida and a graduate of Oneida High School.  She furthered her education at CCBI, Central City Business Institute, of Syracuse.  Dorothy retired from Oneida Limited in 1994 after a 45-year career as an administrative assistant. 

Dorothy was an avid bowler and enjoyed participating in the CAC leagues.  She was a voracious reader and could spell any word with ease.  Dorothy was a lifelong parishioner of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and an active member of their Senior Group.  She enjoyed the companionship provided by the many luncheons and traveling with the group to area performances and attractions. 

Most of all Dorothy was devoted to her family as a loving and caring daughter, sister and aunt.  She enjoyed the simple pleasures of a day in the sun or a ride in the car, but nothing brought her more joy than her family.  If there was a birthday party, a holiday dinner or a camping trip Dort was there and having the time of her life.  

Dorothy is survived by her siblings: Bernard Happle of Munnsville, Margaret McCormick of Oneida, Teresa (William) Kent of Amsterdam and Constance (Cam) Pardo of Freeport.  Her closest nieces and nephews including: Fred (Kathy) Happle (with whom she resided), Marie (Ben) Janowski, George (Linda) Happle, Thomas (Heidi) Happle, Lori (Roy) Bronk and Richard (Jeannine) McCormick. She is also survived by several other nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by both her parents Joseph and Marguerite, her brothers Everett and Joseph Jr. her sisters-in-law Estella Happle and Mildred Happle, and her brother-in-law Larry McCormick.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by the Reverend James Buttner on Saturday, November 25, 2023, at 12 Noon at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Oneida. There will be an hour of visitation at the church beginning at 11 AM.
