Paula Ligato

Our beloved sister Paula Ann Ligato entered into eternal peace on Friday January 22, 2021 of Covid 19. Paula was born on July 10th, 1958. She joins her predeceased father Dominick and recently deceased mother Constance Ligato. She leaves behind her sister Theresa (Terry) Magur, brothers Charles Ligato, Very Rev. Anthony Ligato, nephews James (Amy) Magur, Christian Magur, and great nieces Stella and Piper Magur whom she loved so much and her dear friends Donata Klersy and Joan Flanigan.

She touched so many lives. Paula asked from her hospital bed why am I so loved by so many people? Because she loved them all.

Paula loved basking in the sun on her very large floating islands in her pool. She so looked forward to her annual girl cruises with dear friends and cousins. She always came back with stories that made us laugh until it hurt. She dressed in brightly colored clothes that had shoes and purses to match every outfit. Paula had to have a closet made just for her shoes there were so many. She was a kind and loving soul who loved her family and life.

We want to express our deepest appreciation to the fourth floor ICU doctors and nurses at St. Peter’ Hospital who provided great care and comfort to our beloved sister and friend.

A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated by her brother Fr. Anthony Ligato on January 28, 2021 at 10:00am at St. Jude the Apostle Church in Wynantskill, New York. The viewing will be on Jan 27th 4pm – 7pm at St. Jude the Apostle Church. Burial will be at St. Mary’s cemetery in Troy. The funeral mass will be livestreamed on the St. Jude the Apostle Church Wynantskill Facebook page at 10:00am. Memorial donations can be made in the memory of Paula Ligato to St. Jude the Apostle Church Wynantskill, New York.

How saddened we feel in the loss that the Ligato family has endured. Paula was certainly one-of-a-kind. As former customers of the Coffee Shop we were always treated like one of the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

My thoughts and prayers to Paulas family. What a terrible loss for all who knew her. Paula was a breath of fresh air wherever she went. When my late husband Aaron was diagnosed with cancer she never let a chance go by to bring him laughter or to exchange hugs. Those hugs meant so much to the both of us. They were genuine and heartfelt. After his passing she never missed a chance to send a prayer my way or lend an ear to my grief. She had a huge personality that filled the room with love, laughter and kindness. Blessings to her family. I am so very, very sorry for you all. Ren Baum

Paula was one of the sweetest ,kind and giving Person's i have ever met. Paula and I were by no means in touch everyday, every week, but in times of need she was there. Paula would tell me over and over, how i would see my Sister Linda again. For this, i am so grateful, because i will see both of you again. Until then, i will remember the good times........Fly high to your reward.
