Poem "To George W. Wood" Printed in 1935

Poem “To George W. Wood”. Printed in 1935


I didn't hear his jovial call
Today at break of dawn;
He didn't wish “Good mornin: to
My dad across the lawn.

I didn't see him in the yard
Nor hear him at our door
To bring the morning paper from
the office. Never more.

They say I'll never see him leave again
That cozy home next door
To work an hour at gardening,
Or linger in the store.
For a word about the weather; to
Discuss late politics,
Or just to chat with neighbors.
How he'd chuckle at the tricks.

That a favorite dog would play with him.
Our Don had a beaten path
Straight across his cherished garden, yet
Don never stirred his wrath.

“Well, I guess that's right,” he used to say
To many and many a thing;
And they say I'll never hear it; ne'er
Again his voice will ring

On a clear and frosty morning, or
Above a roaring storm,
Or when summer days are sultry, or
When spring's cool days grow warm.

He has gone “to be with Mary”, where
I know he longed to be;
Lonely George; good, princely neighbor.
But it's quite a loss to me!

Author unknown.

On the 1920 Census there was a George W. Wood, 59, and his wife, Mary, living
in Burlington, Otsego County, NY.  He was born in England and was a farmer.  In 1935, he would have been 74 years old.

In January of 1950, she moved her home and office to South Street, where she treated thousands of patients and delivered hundreds of babies, many of whom were delivered at home.
On October 28, 1978, Dr. Baker was honored by her community with a reception given by the Hartwick Business Association marking her 30 years of dedication to her profession and community and for her staying power. She retired in the fall of 1988.

He remained active in NY Forest Ranger School Alumni Association where he served as treasurer for several years, and was an active participant of the Cooperstown High School Alumni Association.

Gordon enjoyed searching for the perfect old, glass toothpick holder and loved traveling to many glass shows all over the country where he could visit with his many friends who shared a similar passion. He also enjoyed visiting the many art galleries of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, a place where he loved to vacation. He loved spending time outdoors and was an avid gardener, who also enjoyed hiking - spending many happy weeks in this countries National Parks. He also was a true animal lover; and especially loved his feline companions.

He is survived by his wife Denise of New Hartford, his daughter Karin Hughes and her husband Jonathan Covel of San Diego, CA.

The family wishes to sincerely thank the staff of Hospice and Palliative care of Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties for the wonderful care complemented by true compassion that was given to Gordon during the last week of his illness. They wish to thank Dr. Brehaut and Drs.

They also want to thank their good friends and family doctors the Wadheras for their wonderful care and friendship. The family sincerely thanks all of Gordon's wonderful friends and family who gave him something to look forward to everyday of his life. He lived that life until the very end, never missing coffee with his friends at Panera, Casab's or around the country at a convention or auction.

The family suggests a donation in Gordon's memory be made to Hospice and Palliative Care Inc. 4277 Middle Settlement Rd., New Hartford, NY 13413; the New Hartford Public Library, 2 Library Lane, New Hartford, NY; or to any animal organization dedicated to saving the lives of animals.

Walling, Herbert M. wed to Marjorie Julia Kipp 1946

Walling, Herbert M. wed to Marjorie Julia Kipp 1946

Married September 21, 1946


Marjorie Julia Kipp, 55 Riverside, and Herbert M. Walling, 129 Helen St., Binghamton, were united in marriage Saturday afternoon at 4, in St. Paul's Episcopal church at Sidney. White gladioli, laurel and autumn leaves, provided the background for the rites, which were read by Rev. Rollin D. Malany.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Myron J. Kipp, and the bridegroom's mother is Mrs. H. M. Walling.
Richard McCLelland, Sidney, presented an organ recital of nuptial music, and accompanied Mrs. Mc Clelland who sang “Ave Maria,” and “Because.”
Escorted to the altar by her father, the bride appeared in white satin, fashioned with long sleeves ending in points at the wrists, sweetheart neckline, and modified train. Her fingertip veil was caught to a halo of orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet of gardenias and sweetpeas. She also wore a strand of gold beads, belonging to a great aunt, and worn both by the bride's mother and her sister, Mrs. Charles Landers, Sidney, at their weddings.
Mrs. Landers was her sister's matron of honor and was attired in a gold satin gown styled like that worn by the bride. The same gowns were worn at the time of the marriage of the bride's sister, Mrs. Charles Landers seven years ago. A picture hat, brown accessories and bouquet of pompoms and blue delphiniums, completed her ensemble.
The flower girl was Linda Landers, niece of the bride, who was dressed in floorlength blue satin, with puffed sleeves and lace inserts. She had a matching hat, and carried a colonial nosegay of Pompoms and delphiniums.
Everett Allen, Jr., Binghamton, cousin of the bridegroom, served as best man; and Clifford Decker, Binghamton, and Charles Landers, Sidney, brother-in-law of the bride, seated the guests.
A reception for 125 followed at the home of the bride's parents. The bride's table was centered with a three-tiered wedding cake with a fanshaped bouquet of garden flowers and candles forming the background. Featuring the buffet luncheon was a variety of Swiss cookies made by Mrs. Frank Borchert, Sidney.
For receiving her guests, the bride's mother chose a gray crepe with brown accessories. Her corsage was yellow roses. The bridegroom's mother selected royal blue, with black accessories with a corsage of red roses.
When the couple return from a wedding trip, they will live in Greene. For traveling, Mrs. Walling was garbed in a dress of gray wool with gold and black accessories. An orchid formed her corsage.
A graduate of Sidney High school and Oneonta STC, the bride taught in Oxford four years. She was then graduated from Colt Memorial Babies' Hospital in Newark, N. J. For four years she has been associated with her father in his grocery store.
The bridegroom, who is a graduate of Binghamton High school, served 36 months in the Asiatic and Pacific theaters. He is employed as a salesman by the Binghamton Slag Roofing Co.
Out-of-town wedding guests were from Newark, N. J.; Burlington, Wis.; New York City; Binghamton, Olean, Dansville, Oneonta, Oxford, Callicoon, Milford, and Wyalusing, Pa.
