ONEONTA – Martha Mary Delello, 78, who filled many leadership roles over the years at Oneonta’s St. Mary’s Roman Catholic parish, passed away on Monday, Feb. 24, 2020, at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
She was born on Aug. 12, 1941, in Oneonta, the daughter of Patsy and Matilda (Martin) Delello. She was the youngest of 13 children.
A lifelong area resident, Martha was a graduate of St. Mary’s School and Oneonta High School.
She was employed by Wilber Bank and Key Bank in Oneonta and retired after 25 years from SUNY Delhi.
COOPERSTOWN – After studying five church steeples suggested by village trustees, the Key Bank building, 103 Main St., still makes the most sense for T-Mobile’s proposed antenna, Project Manager Robert Willson told the village Zoning Board of Appeals last evening.
“Key Bank is the best choice due to its height and location,” Willson told the ZBA at its monthly meeting. The other five locations his team evaluated were Templeton Hall (formerly Unitarian-Universalist church), and the Baptist, Catholic, Methodist Presbyterian churches.
