“She loved all Guilderland sports, especially the soccer program, and was a fan of the New York Yankees, New York Giants, and all things Saratoga Springs,” wrote her family in a tribute.

“She loved her family, extended family, and many friends from around the region,” her family concluded.

Mrs. Springer is survived by her sons, Stephen and John; her grandchildren, Tyler, David, Jordan, Lauren, Jeffrey, and Sean; and by her brother, John Newman, of St. Louis, Missouri, and his family.
