Fay Rouge of Montgomery, formerly of Glenham, NY, passed away at home on Jan 7th surrounded in love by her family.
Fay was born in Cooperstown NY to the late Mabel (Mallette) and Harry Van Brink. She graduated from Owen D. Young high school in Van Hornesville and earned her LPN from St. Joseph's in Yonkers.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Julius J. Rouge, her brother Henry Van Brink and sister Ellen Van Brink Jones.
Fay is survived by her sisters Shirley (Pedro) Muskus & Joyce Goodrich, her brother Harry (Fanny) Van Brink and several nieces and nephews, her daughter Ellen Venugopal, son-in-law Vijay and granddaughter Katherine Stevens of Montgomery, two step sons Terance and his wife Irene of Lake Ronkonkoma, NY and Robert and his wife Bernice of Riverhead, NY, 5 step-grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
"Aunt" Fay always gave her all to caring for us. She was always there to lend an ear, and to offer her most loving guidance. She will be terribly missed by "the cousins".
She will be laid to rest in Ft. Plain cemetery. A private celebration of life will be held at later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the World Wildlife fund by adopting one of her beloved penguins, The Foye Belle Foundation, or Hospice of Orange & Sullivan, who provided amazing care to all of us during her final weeks.
