Obituary of Elizabeth Alvaro


Elizabeth Alvaro, born August 26, 1931 of East Greenbush, NY passed away

peacefully in her home on December 11, 2018. She was the

daughter of the late Edward and Daisy (Hemingway) Morris and the

sister to the late David, Robert, Edward Morris, Jr. and Marie

Matthews. Betty is predeceased by her husband Lorenzo B. Alvaro, Jr.,

her daughter Patricia Morin (Alvaro), her son Lawrence B. Alvaro,

III., and her granddaughter Christine Cooperider (Cricket). She is

survived by her daughter Joanne Alvaro; grandchildren, Elizabeth

Rowlett (Darrin), Wayne R. Cooperider (Kara), Lawrence Alvaro IV,

Michael Morin (Vanessa); great-grandchildren Darrin Jr ,Daeyona, and Juan

Rowlett, David and Wayne Cooperider III, and Skylar and Saige Morin, and adopted

Grandchild Melinda Mosher as well as many great nieces and nephews.

Betty worked for and retired from NY State. She gave many years of

dedicated volunteer service to the Church of Saint Mary’s in Clinton

Heights and held dear many of her friendships she gained from the

church. To show the support of all the love Betty has showed over the

years to her friends and family, working together, we were able to

honor her wishes in staying in her home until she was called to be

with all her loved ones that have gone before her. This could not have

been done alone; family, friends, doctors and neighbors all made this

possible. Special thanks to her caregiver Lystra; Dr. Sandel and staff for the

support needed; Rich, Eileen and Mike for all the years of watching

over Betty; and Rensselear Community Hospice for providing us with the

guidance and support needed to help Gram with this journey. Family

asks that donations be made to St Mary’s Church of Clinton Heights; or

Community Hospice of Rensselear.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, December 14, 2018 at the Church of St. Mary at Clinton Heights 163 Columbia Turnpike Rensselaer, NY at 9:30am. Interment will follow in the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in East Greenbush, NY
