Noella Bourdeau Dalton, 93, a longtime resident of Massena, NY, passed away Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at the Wesley Health Center in Saratoga, NY.

Noella was born February 13, 1926 in Massena, NY, the daughter of Victor and Bernadette Bourdeau. She married John (Jack) Dalton, June 14, 1947 in Massena, NY. Noella was very devoted to her faith, family, and home. While a homemaker, she also worked at the Massena Mica Plant during WW2, the Syracuse China Factory, Ames Department Store, and in her retirement years, loved caring for the elderly in the Massena area. Never idle, she enjoyed reading, and needlework of any kind and was an avid gardener. But most of all, she delighted, always, in bringing smiles and laughter to all who knew her.

A celebration of life and a memorial Mass will take place in early spring.
