Maria Tedford

Obituary of Maria Katherine Tedford

Maria K. (Pangburn) Tedford, 52, of Menands, died Sunday June 27th 2021 after an unfairly brief but remarkably courageous battle with cancer.

Born in 1968, the daughter of Rev. Donald and Tulla Pangburn, Maria called the Capital District home for the majority of her life. From the young age of 4 years old, Maria developed a deep love of the calm and tranquility of her favorite place - Silver Bay, NY on Lake George, and as her life and family grew, she was able to teach others how to love it as much as she did.

There is no one who quite loved life the way Maria did, and she lived hers to the fullest.  She had many accomplishments but Maria's pride and joy was being a Mom to her three children: Chloejean, Phoebe and Alex.

"Her people" left here to figure out how to live life without her include; the love of her life Herb (more affectionately known as any of the following: The Principal, The Big Guy, Ted, and/or Sherman), her daughter and son, Chloejean and Alex, step-son Spencer, mother Tulla, siblings Paul and Melisa and an incredibly large extended family, as well as the many friends that she considered family, too. 

Maria has been reunited somewhere beautiful, eating pizza and ice cream, with her daughter Phoebe Lynne and her Dad.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that in Maria's honor, you gather with your favorite people and enjoy your favorite meal - and laugh.

If sending flowers, "oh for shizel" no lilies. 

Services in honor of her life will be held on Thursday, July 1 2021 from 4pm-7pm at Rockefeller Funeral Home 165 Columbia Turnpike with a time of remembrance beginning at 7pm. Condolences, and memories, may be left at www.wjrockefeller.com
