Visitation at Funeral Home
Obituary of Judith Syron
Judith Pilotti Syron passed away peacefully on November 2, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. She is predeceased by her mother Marian, her husband Robert Syron, her brother-in-law and "big brother" Joseph "Tom" Flynn and her niece Susan Flynn. She is survived by her first husband, Ernest Pilotti, children Matthew Pilotti, Christopher Pilotti (Catherine Farrell) and Teresa Smith (Kevin); her grandsons, Christopher, Dominick, Anthony, Alex and Brian; her sister Joan Flynn, nieces Karen, Mary Jane and Catherine, and nephew John; special friends, lifelong best friend Beverly Redding, Marianne Coughlin, Maria Motsavage, and faithful companion, Sadie, a "who rescued who" story in the world of animal shelters. Judy and her sister Joan enjoyed joyful, childhood summers on their grandmother's farm near Walton, NY, where they hid in the closet on Labor Day when Marian came to collect them to return to school in Oneonta. Judy was introduced to Broome Tech's dental hygiene program by an attentive high school guidance counselor from her hometown of Oneonta and became well liked and well known among her many patients in Dr. Moriarity's office on the Southside of Binghamton, including Father Jerry Buckley who she always mentioned as one of her favorites. In an encore career in the Albany area, dental patients there were fortunate enough to experience the same courtesy and grace she possessed. Kindness was among her many great virtues. There are stories too numerous to mention when she reached out to strangers as easily as family and friends. She had indomitable strength through any hardship without complaint. Funeral Services will be held at the J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home, 141 Main Street, Binghamton, Tuesday at 12 noon. Rev. Msgr. Michael Meagher will officiate. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City. The family will receive friends at the McCormack Funeral Home, Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 12 noon. Our family would like to thank Kathy Mullin and all the staff at Willow Point Nursing Home for their kind, compassionate and exceptional care to our mom. They cared for her like she was one of their own family. Expressions of kindness in Judy's name can be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York, 5005 Campuswood Drive, East Syracuse, NY, 13057 or to the Alzheimer's Association, 401 Hayes Avenue, Endicott, NY 13760 or any local animal shelter.
