Rotterdam - Christine Vega MaLossi, 63 of Rotterdam, peacefully passed away at home with her loving husband by her side on Wednesday, September 28, 2022; after a courageous 20 year fight with ovarian cancer. She was a kind and gentle soul.
Christine was born, raised and schooled in Cohoes, before moving with her family to Clifton Park. Christine was the daughter of the late Alfred Vega and the late Irene Cavanaugh Vega. She is survived by her husband Scott C. MaLossi and her brother Alfred Vega Jr. of Newport News Virginia. As well as many cousins who loved her.
Chris graduated from Shenendehowa High School and then graduated from Hudson Valley C.C with an Associates Degree in business.
She held administrative and finance positions at Excelsior College, WMHT, General Electric, New York Independent System Operator, and Winkler Accounting Firm.
Christine joined the Big Sisters/Little Sisters organization as a big sister. Before Covid she also volunteered with the Schenectady RIF (reading is fundamental) organization helping to assist elementary school students with their reading skills. Like her mother, she loved and cared for kittens and cats all her life.
Our family thanks Schenectady Hospice for their generous help assisting Christine to pass at home.
Because of the rarity of her form of ovarian cancer, she was wanted to donate her remains to Albany Medical College for research.
