Born in Troy, New York, she was the daughter of the late Bernice B. Dyer (Charles) Malka and the late Abe Yaiser. She was the beloved wife of the late George W. McCormack, Sr. and was educated at St. Peter’s Academy and Catholic Central High School, both in Troy.


Mrs. McCormack was a wonderful and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt.

She was a communicant of St. Augustine’s Church in Lansingburgh, a member of The American Way Home Bureau and loved doing crafts, cooking, baking, candy making and her vegetable garden.  Her family always looked forward to her pumpkin & banana breads, chili sauce and Christmas treats. More than anything, she loved spending time with her family.
