Obituary of Faye Platt

Faye Platt, 82, from Unadilla, NY, passed away at home on Monday, June 17, 2019. She was a graduate of the Sidney School Class of 1954. Right after graduation she went to work as a teller at the Sidney Bank which was located on Main St. in Sidney, she worked at Bendix in Dept. 51, she worked a short time and Woolworth's in Oneonta, and after moving to Unadilla she worked part-time at Earls Poultry Farm as an egg handler but mainly she was a stay at home wife and mother.


It was while she was working at Bendix that she met her future husband, Ronald "Ronnie" Platt. They were married on January 27, 1962 and were married for 57 years.

She liked visiting with family and friends, bird watching, reading, flower gardening, watching science fiction, and traveling.
