A special education teacher with the Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville Central School District died in a July 1 bicycle accident in Fulton County, sheriff’s officials said today.
Dale Boudry, 58, appeared to lose control of her bicycle on Route 10 in Caroga, just south of the Pinnacle Restaurant, Fulton County Sheriff’s officials said.
A motorist saw the accident and stopped to assist. Officials said today they determined no motor vehicles were involved in the crash.
The Caroga Lake Fire Department, as well as the Ambulance Service of Fulton County responded. She was taken by ambulance to Nathan Littauer Hospital in Gloversville and then on to Albany Medical Center, where she passed away.
Boudry did not have identification with her, officials said, but deputies identified her within hours with the public’s assistance.
Boudry, of Little Falls, served as a secondary special education teacher with the Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville Central School District for more than 18 years, according to a note on the district’s site and her obituary.
“She enjoyed the challenges of teaching Special Education and learning every subject so she would be able to teach it,” her obituary published in the Herkimer Times Telegram reads. “Dale developed special bonds with many students and their families that extended far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.”
Memorial services were held Friday, according to her obituary.
She previously served as a case manager in Herkimer County and served six years with the U.S. Army, attaining the rank of sergeant, her obituary reads. The district wrote she also served the Army as an electronic warfare voice interpreter.
“Ms. Dale Boudry was well liked and respected by all who knew her,” the district’s note reads. “OESJ mourns the loss of such a good friend and dedicated educator.”
