Mary Margaret Tremblay started volunteering at St. Peter’s Hospital 19 years ago – June 20, 1997, to be exact – logging nearly 12,000 hours of dedicated service.

“Mary had a commitment to service that was inspiring,” said Amanda Weller, volunteer recruiter for St. Peter’s Hospital. “She always met every task and request with grace and a sense of humor – she will truly be missed here at St. Peter’s.”

A former local business owner – Mary operated H & M Contractors & Builders of Cohoes alongside her husband, the late Henry R. Tremblay – she was well known for her community involvement, from the Girl Scouts with her daughters (one of whom is Mary Ann Hammond, former Director of Nursing for Surgical Services, and currently a nurse consultant for Patient Experience at St. Peter’s), to the VFW, to the American Legion, in her church parish, and her many years with St. Peter’s.
