Mrs. Kamaley “Jennie” (Sageer) Morette, 91, passed away with her loved ones by her side on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare.

Jennie was born in Utica on February 11, 1926, a daughter of the late Sarkis and Selma (Rezey) Sageer. She was educated in local schools and a graduate of T.R. Proctor High School. Always having a talent for decorating, Jennie’s work career began at Marsh’s Drapery Shop, for a few years, and later a position at Morris Drapery Shop spanning over fifty years. She continued to work at window dressings with Alan Tuttle until her retirement. Her following in the decorating industry spanned over three generations; she truly loved her work and making people happy. During her lifetime, Jennie was a sports enthusiast, an active tennis player, bowler, skier and golfer. Jennie had a zest for life and she devoted herself to many, especially her family. When she entered a room, you could feel the warmth and love from her smile and her hug. She put everyone before herself and the word “No” was not in her vocabulary. If you were happy, she was happy, and she needed nothing more. From the grocery store to Vernon Downs, if you met her once you knew her forever. To know her was to love her and she will remain in the hearts of many. She was joined in marriage to Michael C. Morette on February 9, 1979, and they enjoyed over fourteen loving years together until his passing on February 14, 1993. During their marriage, they enjoyed spending time in Florida and golfing and entertaining at the Yahnundasis Golf Club. A woman of deep faith, Jennie was a lifelong devoted member of St. Louis Gonzaga Church. Although she had no children of her own, she proudly assumed the role of mom to her many nieces and nephews, especially Michael Abraham and Mary Ann (Abraham) Ladd.

She is survived by her beloved niece and nephew, with whom she resided most of her life, Mary Ann and Thomas Ladd; a “Situ” to their children, Mara (Keith) Vanderzell, Marc (Alison) Ladd, and "Situ II" to their children, Drew and Ryan Vanderzell, and Alexandra and Theodore Ladd; many nieces and nephews, with special mention of John and David Sageer; she is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Lucy Sageer and Dorothy Sageer; and a lifelong friend, Frances Pedulla. She was predeceased by her sister, Mary Abraham; her brothers, Dominick, George, John, and Joseph Sageer; and her nephews, Fred, Edward, and Sarkis Sageer and Michael Abraham.

Special thanks to Dr. Joseph Booth, Dr. Atul Butala and Dr. Ravi and the staff at Faxton - St. Luke’s Healthcare for their compassion and excellent care during this difficult time.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend The Divine Liturgy of the Faithful Departed on Monday, at 11 a.m. at St. Louis Gonzaga Church, celebrated by Chor Bishop John Faris and Deacons’ Paul Salamy and Peter M. Hobaica. Private entombment will be in Calvary Mausoleum. The family will receive visitors prior to mass from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. at church.

In memory of Kamaley “Jennie” (Sageer) Morette, please consider donations to the St. Louis Gonzaga Building Fund. Envelopes will be available at the service.

“We will love you forever Aunt Jennie”

MaryAnn so sorry for your loss. I first knew of your aunt when she had the task of implementing drapery treatments in our newly built home. She was my Gods Send! As the years past I saw her often and was greeted with her beautiful smile and a hello that always led to a conversation. Praying for you and your family at this time. Sincerely, Kathy and Joe

Oh my beautiful Aunt Jennie, the exquisite Kamaley. How many years you brightened my life every time I saw you or merely talked on the phone with you. Your smile was the warmest, your heart the biggest. You shared your spirit freely and generously. I have cherished it --like your little gifts I keep near me in my house--and will always cherish it. Words fail to convey how much I love you and will miss you.
