To send flowers in memory of Patricia Ann "Nana" Fillmore (Cronk), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Patricia Ann Cronk Fillmore, we always called her Nana, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, at Glens Falls Hospital.
Born on August 17, 1941, in Liberty Corners, NJ, she was the daughter of the late George and Louise (Suk) Cronk.
Pat loved flower gardening, holding hands, watching TV crime dramas, cuddling with her dog, watching and feeding the wild birds at her home in Argyle. She also enjoyed listening to classic rock, having breakfast at the Auction Barn Restaurant in Argyle. Most of all, however, she loved spending time with her grandchildren. While Nana was very gentle and generous, she had a ruthless streak that would come out while playing card and board games with her family. She was also considered an expert pie maker and her clam chowder was a family legend. Most of all, Nana always thought of others before herself, and the legacy of loving others is what we will most remember and cherish.
In addition to her parents, Pat was predeceased by her son, John Peckham Fillmore Jr; her brother, Jerry Cronk.
Left to cherish her memory include her husband, John; her children, Peter Fillmore and Marie Grimmke and her husband, Willy; her grandchildren, Anne, Sam and Noah Grimmke, Ethan, Henry and Dierdre Fillmore; her brother, George “Buddy” Cronk; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Friends may call from 5 to 7pm on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street, Argyle, NY 12809.
Graveside Services will be conducted at 11am on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019, at South Argyle Cemetery.
A gathering will follow the burial at Marie’s house in Greenwich.
