MASSENA – Ann K. Oakes, 85, of 1798 State Highway 420, passed away Wednesday evening, December 30, 2020 at her home after a brief illness.

Ann was born on October 15, 1935 in Massena, the daughter of the late George and Bernice (Barclay) Kingston. She was a 1953 graduate of Massena High School. On October 13, 1956, she married Rolland J. Oakes at the First United Methodist Church with Rev. W.O. Thomas, officiating. He predeceased her on March 25, 2010.

Ann worked for a short time as a stenographer at ALCOA. After her marriage, she and her husband enjoyed the blessings of children and she dedicated her life to raising them. She was a member of AARP and the Massena First United Methodist Church. She enjoyed reading, playing bingo and cards, doing crossword puzzles, and played softball for many years. Of all her enjoyments, her family and the special memories with them meant the most to her. She loved their special trips to Disney and the holiday gatherings were just a few of her favorite times. Ann’s grandchildren were the center of her world and was so proud of their accomplishments as they have started their new careers.

Ann is survived by her children, Vicki Rowe of Massena; Donna M. and Robert Martell of Massena; and Jim and Daria Oakes of Saratoga Springs; her beloved grandchildren, Ann E. Oakes, Jay C. Oakes, and James Robert Martell; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a son-in-law, Bruce Rowe; her sisters, Bernice and Donna Page; and her brothers, James, Thomas, George Jr., Clarence, and William Kingston.

Friends may call Monday 5-7:00 PM at the Donaldson Funeral Home, Massena. A celebration of life and funeral service will be held in the spring during her burial at Pine Grove Cemetery. Due to the current health restrictions, visitation will be occupancy controlled and those attending are asked to observe social distancing and wear face covering. Please note that people may have to stand outside in line if occupancy limits are exceeded.

The family gratefully declines flowers at Ann’s request. Those wishing to offer a memorial may consider donating to Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley, Alzheimer’s Association, or the American Cancer Society.

It was with sadness that I read of your moms’ passing.
I haven’t seen your mom in almost a year since the bingo was closed. I always enjoyed chatting with her and “catching up”
Please hold close your memories to help you through this loss.
Your mom was such a wonderful and kind lady.

We are so sorry to hear that your Mother passed away. She was always such a wonderful person to talk to. My mom and I would run into her at the bingo hall often and she would always talk about her children and grandchildren. Keep your memories close to your heart. Prayers for all of you.

Thank you Doug and Nancy. The children and grandchildren were the center of both of my parents' lives. They spent a lot of time at athletic events, traveling, and family gatherings. We appreciate the prayers.

Vicki, Donna and Jim,

I was so sorry to learn that your Mother had passed away. I remember her fondly on the sidelines and bleachers at our sporting events, while in high school; and, how welcoming she was whenever we came to your house. In recent years, I’ve enjoyed seeing her in photos that you posted on Facebook from family events. May your memories help you overcome this tremendous loss; and, may your Mom be celebrating in Heaven with family members and friends.
Patty Kelly

Vicki Rowe Posted at 12:16pm

Thank you Pat. Our mom was the last of the Kingston siblings. I am sure she had several people welcoming her as she crossed over with our dad first in line.
