SOUTH KORTRIGHT Early Sunday morning, August 7, Torescia "Tor" Badal, 47, of South Kortright, went home to be with her beloved husband Bissundeo. Tor and her family moved to South Korthright from their native home of Trinidad 19 years ago. Tor was employed as a residence hall custodian at SUNY Delhi. She will be remembered best for her cheerful smile, doting over her three children and being a second mom to the students residing in her residence hall. She was a devout mother who loved nothing more than creating a loving environment for her children Santo (29), Vanessa (28), and Vish (22). All three children reside in South Kortright. In addition to her three children, she is survived by her sister, Theresa L. Ramlochan of Albany, nephew Barry and niece Ariane of Albany, niece Dian of Roxbury, nephew Boyie and niece Mala of Trinidad. She also leaves behind partner Bill Ehler, several other great nieces and nephews and extended family. The children send this poem for their mother. In Our Hearts (Author Unknown) We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And days before that too We think of you in silence We often speak your name Now all we have is memories And your pictures in a frame Your memory is our keepsake With which we'll never part God has you in his keeping And we have you in our heart Friends are invited to greet the family on Wednesday, August 10, 2011, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the MacArthur Funeral Home, Hobart.
