Eleanor Letitia O’Day Saltsman, 85, of Amsterdam passed away peacefully on November 6, 2019.

Born on January 14, 1934, Eleanor was the daughter of John “Jack” O’Day and Eleanor Letitia Gaffney O’Day.

She attended local schools and resided in Amsterdam for her entire life, while also cherishing her family roots in Saratoga Springs.

Eleanor was a lifelong caregiver and was a Certified Nursing Assistant for more than 25 years.

She loved doing the crossword every day, and was an avid reader, devouring almost every mystery and spy novel at the Amsterdam Free Library.She was immensely proud of her Irish heritage, and fulfilled a lifetime dream of visiting the Emerald Isle in 1993. She hosted a well-attended annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration, where all were welcome. She loved being the matriarch of her large Irish family, which consisted of her seven daughters and extended family and friends. Her door was always open, and the coffee pot always on.

Eleanor was predeceased by her husband, Marion “Salzy” Saltsman, daughter, Barbara Corridon, and siblings, William and Henrietta O’Day. She is survived by her daughters, Colleen Baker (the late Richard Baker), Lori Rambler (Joseph Rambler), Lisa Sharpe, Amy Stegman (the late Rob Stegman), Carrie Hazzard and Sara Saltsman (Patrick Pryor); nine grandchildren, Carly Baker (Joe Newborn), Chantel Smith (Rich Smith), Amanda Corridon (Lucas Schaufelberg), Jeffrey Zepperi, Jack Sharpe, Anne Stegman, Claire Sharpe, Nicholas Pryor and Natalie Pryor; six great-grandchildren, Elijah, Josiah and Kaylee Newborn, Olivia Knudsen, Violet Smith and AysahZepperi; and nieces, nephews and cousins.

During the last few years, Eleanor was lovingly cared for by several caregivers, for which her family is eternally grateful.

Funeral services will be held Saturday morning, November 9, 2019 at 10:30 at the Riley Mortuary, Inc., 110 Division Street, Amsterdam, NY; followed at 11:15 by a Mass of Christian Burial, which will be celebrated at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 39 St. John Street, Amsterdam.

Relatives and friends are invited to call at the Riley Mortuary from 9 to 10:30 prior to the service

Interment will immediately follow at St. Peter’s Cemetery, 150 West Avenue in Saratoga Springs.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Amsterdam Free Library, 28 Church Street, Amsterdam, NY 12010.

My heart goes out to all the Corridon girls. Letty always made me smile and I loved her stories of the old days of her youth and our heritage. You are all in my prayers and I wish I could give you a hug. We know she is at rest and will always live in our hearts. Barbara Schrade

I fondly remember watching Batman and Dark Shadows after school at her place on Guy Park Avenue. She was always kind and understanding. And considering how much trouble my brother, Mike and I caused, it's a wonder she'd ever want to watch after us. If I remember correctly, she loved listening to BJ Thomas, whose "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" is in my playlist today because of her. I'm deeply sadden by her passing and wish her family the best during this trying time.
With Love,
Frank Davis
