Lois Duffy

Lois C. Duffy of Liberty NY, a retired finance manager for Time Warner Cable in Liberty and long time area resident, died Thursday, April 12, 2018 at her home in Liberty. She was 74 years old.

The daughter of the late John J., Sr. and Dorothea M. Mallon, she was born February 4, 1944 in Brooklyn, NY. Mrs. Duffy was the widow of Joseph M. Duffy, Jr.

Lois was a very hard-working woman, sometimes working two or three jobs to take care of her six children after the passing of her wonderful husband. Lois always put others before herself and was always ready to lend a hand or an ear to anyone who needed it. She was an amazing woman who will be missed by many.
