Obituary of Shirley Friday

Shirley Elizabeth Garrett Friday, 99, passed away two months shy of her 100th birthday, on Friday, December 8, 2023.


She was born on February 3, 1924, at Mary McClellan Hospital in Cambridge, NY, to the late Frank and Grace (Taylor) Garrett


On September 17, 1949, she was married to Lloyd John Friday in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenwich.  They celebrated 53 years together.  John passed away on February 11, 2003. Shirley was a member of St. Paul’s Church for over 65 years.  She was a former member of the Vestry and Women of St. Paul’s.  She was involved in many church activities including the chairing of its prayer chain.  Shirley was always grateful for all the blessings in her life, of which there were many.  She especially loved living near the Battenkill River.  One of her great joys in life was enjoying the Battenkill river and Lake George by boat and canoe, with her husband and family.


She was predeceased by her brother John T. Garrett in 1991. 


She is survived by her children, Jean Kristen Friday Martin and her husband Ted of Saratoga Springs, grandson, Ethan John Martin of Saratoga Springs; son, Stephen Friday of Greenwich; “Favorite Nieces”, Christine, Barbara, Betty and Susan; “Special Nephews” Jack, David and Michael.
