Elizabeth Jane Bindewald, 84, of Schenectady passed away on Friday July 31, 2020 at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady. Growing up in Bellevue, Elizabeth (Betty) was the daughter of the late Cassius and Carolyn (Harris) Pierce; she later moved to Loudonville.

She was a graduate of Nott Terrace High School in Schenectady. Betty also graduated from SUNY Albany with her bachelor’s and master’s degrees of science, earning a permanent teaching certificate in secondary school mathematics (algebra). She taught in Valley Stream (Long Island), Bethlehem School District, as well as substituted at many other schools throughout the Capital District.

Betty was a member of the Scotia Reformed Church. She volunteered in many activities at the church and in the community. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband Gilbert C. Bindewald, Jr. and her brother John Pierce.

She is survived by her son Gilbert Bindewald, III (Bernadette) of Burtonsville, MD, her sister Margaret Pierce of Schenectady, her sister in law Emily Pierce of Glenville, her two grandchildren Isabel Bindewald and Evan Bindewald as well as several nieces and nephews.

Due to the pandemic, a Celebration of Elizabeth’s life will be announced at a later date.

Her family wishes to thank the friends and staff at Kingsway Community for their care and support. Often with a joke to tell, Betty particularly enjoyed activity time, including bingo, hallway sing-alongs, and Bible study.

Arrangements are by the Bond Funeral Home 1614 Guilderland Avenue Schenectady.

Gil & Family & Peggy, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom!! Aunt Betty was a very sweet person, always smiling, always dressed for the occasion ( Pins etc. for the Holidays) she loved that! I'll always remember her Plum Pudding with special sauce, her Rum Balls, the best Carrot Cake ever & others. She Loved the Family get together's, be it a Holiday, us all going to Uncle Gard & Aunt Tooley's camp at Lake George for the day, when Aunt Peggy was coming home from Rochester when she lived there, knowing Gil & his Family were coming from Maryland, My Dad was picking her up for cards at Aunt Ann's & lot's more, it all meant a lot to her! May she rest in peace now & be reunited with Family & Friend's that have been missed! Gail Pierce Ristau

She loved being active with church and family. Always looked forward to lunch with Uncle John and Aunt Emily, then cards or dominos. The plum pudding recipe was from Great Grandpa Harris and I would be happy to share if you do not already have it.
