SCHUYLER LAKE, NY – Family, friends, and colleagues, of Laurie Ann Pestar gathered at the Schuyler Lake Fireman’s Field Saturday to celebrate her life with fond memories, food, and music.
The former Cooperstown Elementary School principal’s secretary passed away in June following a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Her son, Jeremy Denmeade, says it’s overwhelming to realize how many people’s lives she affected.
“We get to celebrate all the good that she’s put out in the world. People get to share all the fond memories of her, and it makes my family feel good knowing how much of an impact she’s had on people’s lives, and really how many lives she’s touched over the years.”
