 NEW BALTIMORE – Selene M. Eaton, 47, passed away suddenly on Monday, July 24, 2017.  Being the daughter of a Sergeant of the US Air Force she was born in Germany.  In 1987 she graduated from Scotia-Glenville High School.  As adventurous as she was she lived in Florida for 6 years and then settled in the Ravena area.  Selene loved her antique country home with lots of grass, flowers and horses roaming on her lawn.  She thought this was a very special place.  She loved animals and was always an advocate for them.  Selene was a friend and co-worker who cared deeply about NYS Economic Development Council, its mission and its members.  She worked at NYSEDC for 16 years and grew tremendously in her job.  She had a wonderful work ethic, was highly organized and was happiest when there were plenty of projects to do.  Selene wore many hats for the organization, including meeting planner and bookkeeper; grants administrator and newsletter blogger; graphic designer and web site manager.  Selene was the person who kept NYSEDC functioning smoothly every day.  Her contributions to NYSEDC cannot be overstated.  There simply are no words to express how much Selene will be missed.  

     Survivors include her parents, John and Carol (Foronda) Eaton; her brother, Anthony (fiancée Valerie) Eaton; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

     Friends may call at the Babcock Funeral Home, Ravena on Saturday, July 29, 2017 from 10 to 12pm.  Funeral services will immediately follow at 12 at the funeral home.  Interment will follow in Alcove Cemetery.  Contributions in memory of Selene may be made to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, 3 Oakland Ave., Menands, NY 12204.
