Obituary of Michael E Donnini, Sr.

Cohoes – It is with great sadness that the family of Michael E. Donnini, Sr., 71, of Cohoes announces his passing on Friday, September 18, 2020. Born in Cohoes, he was a graduate of Cohoes High School class of 1967 and attended the University of Miami. He was a life-long resident of Cohoes and he was son of the late Samuel and Marsina Sbrega Donnini. He was a supervisor at NYS OGS, retiring after 30 years. Michael’s greatest joy in life came from playing golf, cooking (and eating) homemade Italian dishes and spending the winters in Haines City, FL. He was an avid Yankees and Giants fan (and was equally fond of complaining about them). He is survived by his loving wife, Suzanne LaMarche Donnini of Cohoes; his son Michael (and his wife Nicole) of Philadelphia, PA, and daughter Melissa of Portland, OR. He was the brother of Cecelia Sullivan of Oakdale, Conn, Samuel Donnini, Jr. of Cohoes, and the late Philip Donnini. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held on Monday, September 21, 2020 at 6:30 pm. The family will receive friends at the DUFRESNE FUNERAL HOME, Inc., 216 Columbia Street, Cohoes on Monday from 4-7pm prior to the services. The family asks that donations be made in Michael’s honor to the American Heart Association and to a local no-kill animal shelter. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed inside and outside of the funeral home.
