Biography

Hilda Seidel, 106, passed away at the Skilled Nursing Unit at CRMC on January 12, 2018. We will dearly miss our beloved Mutti and Oma. Hilda was born in Hamburg, Germany, on December 2, 1911 to Bertha and Friedrich Lorenzen, sister to Hans Lorenzen.

After graduating from school Hilda worked for a Hamburg import/export company. In 1938 she moved to Landsberg/Warthe, where she joined her husband, Karl Sorensen. Their happiness was shattered by the second world war which took the lives of her husband, brother and mother. Eventually Hilda and her infant daughter made their way back to Hamburg and started a new life. After the death of her second husband, Herbert Seidel, Hilda immigrated to the U.S. to be close to her daughter and family.

We have always been inspired by Hilda's determination and strength to fully embrace each chapter of her life.

Hilda is survived by her daughter, Petra and husband, Dr. John Muccia of Liberty; her grandson, Michael Muccia of Liberty, granddaughter, Monica Scott and her husband, Neil, and her great-grandsons, Jacob and John of Houston, TX. She is also survived by many friends in New York as well as by nieces and nephews in Germany.

While living at the Skilled Nursing Unit, for the past 6 and half years, Hilda was skillfully and compassionately cared for by Dr. Sheldon Leidner an a wonderful staff of various SNU professionals. The family would like to thank each and everyone for their kindness and dedication. We also wish to thank Pastor Johanna from St. Paul's Church and Pastor Bob for their spiritual guidance. And mother's visitors who so kindly stopped by.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, January 17 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 24 Chestnut St., Liberty, NY 12754, Rev. Johanna Andritz officiating.

Arrangements are under the care of Colonial-Ramsay Funeral Homes, for further information please call 845-292-7160 or visit www.colonialbryantfuneralhome.com

Evangelist Hazel Belle Williams, a resident of Sullivan County for over 50 years, departed this life and went home to be with the Lord on October 31, 2017 at the age of 79. She was the daughter of the late Willie Crandle and Allie G. Salisbury and was born in Martin County, NC on May 25, 1938.

Hazel attended School in North Carolina and later met and married the late Minister Charles Gilbert Williams and to this union three children were born. Hazel relocated to Monticello NY and was employed by The Catskill Shopper. She was also employed by Anita and Jack Numerson as their nanny.

Hazel was baptized in the name of JESUS and filled with the Holy Ghost. Hazel was chosen by the LORD to Minister the Gospel and was later called and licensed to become an Evangelist.

Evangelist Hazel took her calling very serious.

Hazel was a very special woman with a loving and beautiful soul. Hazel genuinely loved children so much so that she fostered over 20 children and raised many of her nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. She is known to many family and friends as "GRANDMA"- that just shows how much she loved children and they loved her. Evangelist Hazel loved her church hats and was known by everyone as the lady with the hats. When she put on a hat she really wore that hat. Hazel had so many hats in so many colors it was as if they were a part of her. Hazel also loved her brooches and flowers and plants. Evangelist Hazel was always smiling and talking to people. Hazel had her own special language and the way she spoke was funny to us at times, but we knew when she meant business. Hazel treated everyone nicely and was always a genuine person. She has truly let her light shine.

Joseph F. Lubnewski

Smallwood, NY

Joseph F. Lubnewski, a longtime resident of Smallwood, NY, entered into eternal rest on Friday October 13, 2017 at the age of 91. Joe was the son of the late Adolph and Anna Lubniewski and was born on December 13, 1925 in Dickson City, PA. and is the last survivor of seven children.

After graduating from Dickson City High School, Joe worked in the hotels in the Borscht Belt in NY. He worked many jobs but mainly as a bartender at which time he met many entertainers, especially comedians. He learned their routines and told them at every family function. After the hotels closed, he worked in a liquor store, most recently working at White Lake Wine & Spirits until this past June. He was an avid fisherman until one day he said, "I'm not losing any more sleep over these fish." And so his fishing career ended and he returned to football and baseball. He was a former member of the Monticello Elks Lodge and was a Past Master and member of the Monticello Lodge # 532 F&AM. Joe always said he wasn't a rich man but he was a happy man. We will miss him very much.

He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Eleanor at home; daughter, Joann Conroy and her husband Richard of Smallwood, NY; grandchildren, Christopher Conroy of Silver Spring, MD and Cheryl Goetchius and her husband Charles (chip) of Masten Lake, NY; great-grandchildren, Paige Innis and Joseph Goetchius and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved son Joseph A. Lubnewski; his brothers and their wives, Anthony and Anna, Edward and Frances and Leonard and Lovey and by his sisters and their husbands, Helen and John Gavala, Sophie and Frank Chorba and Jean and Frank Shemonsky.

Obituary

Dorothy L. Crossman

Ferndale, NY

On March 30, 2017, Dorothy L. Crossman (aka Dottie the Hottie) finally did something for herself and shed this life for something greater. She was 79. Born on February 12, 1938 in Corinth, NY, she was the daughter of the late Nelson and Lillian Gurney.

She survived many things including a not-so-great childhood and becoming a widow and single Mom to three daughters at the age of 36. She learned and did a great job raising her daughters. She loved the color pink; jigsaw puzzles; sub sandwiches; music; Elvis (even impersonators); ice cream and Grissom from CSI. She smiled easily and gave from her giant heart even when she should not have. Dottie was devoted to her grandchildren and absolutely lit up when around them. If you knew her, smile through your tears. If you didn't, smile because she would have loved to meet you!

She is survived by her three daughters, Debra L. Crossman, Rebecca A. Crossman and Cynthia L. Stoutenburg and husband Lanny and her beloved grandchildren, Gregory Lloyd, Kyle Storer, Tyler Storer and Lauren Stoutenburg V. She was predeceased by her husband Edson Richard Crossman and a grandson, Joshua John Lloyd.

A special thank you to Adult Day Care and the staff and residents at the SNU unit at Catskill Regional Medical Center for their wonderful care of our mother.

For these things we truly love you and can never repay all you have done. All of his friends and family will dearly miss Alfred and his memory will be in our thoughts forever.

Walker Lee Tompkins

Liberty, NY

Walker Lee Tompkins, known by his close friends as Leroy, was born on June 3, 1935 to Henry Hercules and Mae Cooper Tompkins in Augusta, GA. He was one of fourteen children. He passed away on Tuesday November 22, 2016 in Harris, NY.

In 1949, he came to New York City with his parents, brothers and sisters who had stayed in the south until their parents decided to bring them up north to be reunited with their grandmother, the late Nellie, brother, the late Johnson and sister Helen.

He received his education from the New York City Public School System.

Leroy began his boxing career in Philadelphia, PA in the lightweight division. With his strong passion for the arts, he relocated to the Catskills, where he started the boxing federation. In the early '70s, he trained in Ki Shin Do with the forefathers. In Liberty, NY, he was one of the first who had been licensed and received his black belt. He won numerous awards in the field of boxing, as well as in the martial arts. In Swan Lake, NY, Leroy opened his own boxing/martial arts training gym called Leroy's Health and Fitness Center, where he trained many students in the boxing/martial arts disciplines.

For many years, Leroy worked as a security officer at two prominent hotel establishments: Stevensville in Swan Lake, NY and Brown's Hotel in Loch Sheldrake, NY.

Leroy was a soft-spoken, well-respected individual, who had a heart of gold. In his quiet, but generous way, he helped anyone in need and never looked for anything in return. Many who have grown to know Leroy understand that he was passionate about what he believed in and he was taken seriously and not one to be reckoned with.

Walker Lee leaves to cherish his memories: sweetheart, Syble; 3 sisters, Helen, Audrey and Mollie; brother, Ellis; nieces, Darlene, Ludele, Monique, Tanya, Sheena, Nadia and Desiree; nephews, Paul, Michael, Larry (who loved him as a father), Jamie, and Charles Washington (Nas); grandnieces and grandnephews; 3 step-daughters, Elaine, Amy and Paula, 2 step-granddaughters, Chrissy and Michelle; 7 step-grandsons, Marcus, Charles, Anthony, Geno, Mikey, Bobby, Joey and other loving relatives and friends.

Obituary

Mary Alice Le Beau (Stebbins)

Wurtsboro, New York

7/07/1928--10/15/2016

Mary Alice Le Beau, died peacefully in her home Sunday, October 16, 2016. She was born July 7, 1928, to Clarence and Janet Stebbins in their home in Gardena, California. Her sister to Eleanor (Stebbins) Symer of Goleta CA and her brother, Charles Stebbins of Cathedral City CA survive her.

Her family operated a chicken ranch where they were wholesalers of eggs - which would be called "free range" and "organic " today. Every member had a job to do and the children learned about responsibility while caring for the animals and tending to the fruit and vegetable gardens. It was a good beginning. Her love of music was demonstrated from an early age with singing, playing the piano and the clarinet. This led to studying voice at both UCLA and USC and appearing in musical theatre productions. Her ambition after college was to appear in grand opera. While working for the Automobile Club of Southern California she studied with vocal coaches and developed a lovely mezzo-soprano voice. She was gaining much recognition as an actress and singer in Southern California when she responded to a higher calling that led her to enter the Episcopal Order of St. Helena in Newburgh, N.Y. As Sister Alice she spent twenty years in service to others. During her tenure there she earned a Masters Degree in Counseling from Cornell University. As "Sister in Charge" for six years she led the order in expanding their outreach mission. Her personal assignments led her to work in girls' schools in Augusta, Georgia and Mexico. Several months were spent working with the Order of Holy Cross in Bolahun, Liberia in Africa an assignment that she loved.

Her work in the inner City of New York led her to broaden her horizons and to leave the Order and accept a position as Vocational Counselor in the New York State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. She had a crushing number of people on her list waiting for help and rejoiced in finding placements for many of them.

It was then that she met and married Randy Le Beau becoming stepmother to Heidi, Denise, Kenneth, Lisa, Christopher and Jason.

While living on Long Island, Randy and Mary Alice began spending happy times in the Catskill Mountain area where they found a plot of land in Wurtsboro and purchased it as a place to spend holidays and occasional weekends. Randy's talents in all kinds of construction and Mary Alice's hands on work ethic enabled them to begin building a small house together on their lovely spot in the forest near Yankee Lake. Their mutual affection for this home grew and convinced them to leave the city and make this their permanent home. Randy had no trouble finding work as an electrician and Inspector of new construction while Mary Alice worked as Confidential Secretary to the Mamakating Town Supervisor and later as Secretary to Attorney Judith Young.

Joining American Legion Post 1266, they made many friends and enjoyed the social events as well as working to support the needs of the Legion. She served as Historian for both the local and county Posts. Joining the Women's Auxiliary where she handed out the familiar orange poppies, placed flags on the graves of veterans, and marched in parades. She worked tirelessly at fundraisers and the fund-raising dinners were popular with the townspeople. For 15 years she was their Treasurer and had also served as a past president.

Veterans of Foreign Wars member for 5 years and services on Memorial Day also claimed her attention. Wurtsboro Community Church became her new religious home where she enjoyed singing in the choir and volunteering in the Church's Community Food Pantry. Her organizational skills and joy in helping others soon found her playing a dominant role and she took great pride in working with the other members to put food in the hands of those who needed it most.

The Basha Kill was a place she loved to spend time and share with visitors. When the area was threatened by development, Mary Alice joined other concerned citizens in efforts to save this unique place for its wildlife and the enjoyment and education of future generations. She found a unique approach in delivering her message when she set up a hot dog stand near it's entrance which gave her a chance to plead her case with the many people who visited. When her husband Randy died their dog, Foxie, was her companion and comforter.

As old age advanced, all of her devoted friends and neighbors checked in on her. Most notably, Carolyn and Ed Seeley happily assisted her in whatever she needed which enabled her to remain in her home the rest of her life. During the final days of her surrender to cancer she was lovingly attended to by her son, Chris Le Beau and Hospice Care.

Eleanor and Charles wish to express their immeasurable gratitude to Chris for his devotion to our sister and giving her the nursing care she needed. She was never alone and took comfort in his remembrances of happy times in her past with family, music, literature and service to God. His presence and regular reports to us relieved the anxiety and concern caused by our absence during this difficult time. Chris, we are ever in your debt. God bless you.

Grave Side Services will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 3:00 PM at Sullivan County Veterans Cemetery, Sunset Lake Rd., Liberty, NY where her cremains will be buried with her loving husband's cremains.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in her name to:

Basha Kill Area Association, Inc. PO Box 1121, Wurtsboro, NY 12790.

BB laughed often and had a zestful life with a wicked and wry sense of humor. Yet she was an ardent feminist and fiercely independent. She prized her Sunday New York Times Crossword puzzles. She equally had a strong work ethic choosing to work until she was 92 years old followed by her volunteer work. Ever the lady, BB was always stylish and a fond patron of the arts and cared about social issues.

She was a talented artist finding inspiration in people and moments with gallery showings into her mid 90's. She remained active in her community on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where she lived for the last 50 years with many strong friendships. She was passionate about dancing since the 1940's until she was 92 years old and exercised regularly remaining health conscious through her 90s.

Her sense of adventure was never-ending, whether it was a drive across America from California to NY when she was 95 years old or her enthusiasm to move down to Nashville for her twilight years. As a devoted grandmother, she encouraged family to pursue their dreams to find happiness.

BB was beloved and treasured by her family with support and love at home to her last days. She enjoyed the comfort of family pets daily and local outings into the beautiful woods and streams of Jeffersonville, NY. Her candle burned brightly to her very last days where she was alert, funny and gregarious.

Donations can be made to the American Lung Assn or the American Heart Assn.

Wayne C. Benton

Liberty, NY

Wayne Chandler Benton (AKA "B") 65, of Pine Island, Florida, since 2005 and a longtime resident of Liberty, New York, died August 18, 2016. He was born on Flag Day, June 14, 1951.

Wayne was a retired New York State corrections officer and a member of the Moose Lodge #2199 where he tended bar. He was also a member of Sons of the American Legion of Pine Island, Florida and the Elks Lodge of Liberty, New York.

Sports played a huge part in his life and while he knew a great deal about most sports, he was a real connoisseur when it came to baseball and football (following the Detroit Tigers and the Washington Redskins was his passion). He was a serious collector of sports memorabilia. Outspoken and direct, he was never afraid to "tell it like it is". You always knew where you stood with Wayne. Knowledgeable on topics ranging from history to life in general, Wayne's quick-witted sense of humor was always on display. He was known as an avid animal lover who would save a stray cat as well as feed the birds. He enjoyed cooking "his sauce" and celebrating all the major holidays.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be sent to CARE Catskill Animal Rescue League P.O. Box 522 Liberty, New York 12754.

A Celebration of Life will be held on September 18, 2016 at the Liberty Cemetery at 2 P.M. and immediately following at Mr. G's Grille 70 Sullivan Avenue Liberty, New York. In honor of Wayne's passion for sports, those attending are invited to wear a sports team related item.

Biography

Obituary

Mark Dale Burton

Wurtsboro, NY

On July 29th we lost a piece of our history as Mark Dale Burton passed away at his home in Wurtsboro, NY.

Mark Dale Burton (McGee) was born in Wellfleet, Nebraska on September 17 1926. His parents, Harry and Daisy Bell Burton, homesteaded in a sod hut and when he was four they moved to a ranch in Yuma, Colorado. Mark rode bareback to his one room school house and often hunted rabbits to help feed the family. They weathered the Depression, the dust bowl and grasshopper invasions. Despite the hard times he still wanted to be a farmer and won many 4 H ribbons. He never lost his love of gardening.

WWII intervened. At seventeen he wanted to join his older brothers and defend the United States. Rejected by the other services for a missing finger he joined the Merchant Marines, serving in the Pacific. After his discharge like many veterans at that time, he worked at any job he could find; selling magazine subscriptions, working the Texas oil fields, building hydroelectric dams, and finally carpenter's apprentice. Later he had his own construction firm in Long Island , NY

Mark met his first love Louise Rauso of Brooklyn NY. They married and he followed her back east. Eventually settling down in Floral Park LI and having three children, Mark Jr, Guy, and Diane Burton. There are five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. He said his children were his "best friends".

Single again in 1985 he met and married Justina Hendricks. After retirement in 1992 they moved to the Basha Kill in Wurtsboro, restoring their old house, traveling the United States and to his great regret only missing Alaska. Lesser known National Parks were his favorite destinations. "No people and lots of animals"

Mark loved to share the bounty of his vegetable gardens and fruit trees and having the grandchildren come to visit including Justina's granddaughter who spent summers with them.

As his Parkinson's progressed moving and speech became difficult. He never complained greeting everyone with a smile. He was loved and will be missed.

There will be a party to celebrate Mark's life on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at 1 PM at the VFW, 26 VFW Road, Wurtsboro, NY 12790.

Donations should be made to the Wurtsboro Community Church Food Bank, PO Box 487, Wurtsboro, NY 12790 or the Veterans of Foreign Wars of Wurtsboro, PO Box 410, Wurtsboro, NY 12790.

Rita lived a challenging life in which she battled a progressive eye disease and other health issues. None of these concerns stopped her from becoming a fulfilled person, ever resourceful in meeting all challenges that came her way.

She spent most of her adult life in Brooklyn, NY where she was known for her kindness and generosity-always willing to help others in need. Although sight was a challenge for her in this life, she explored the streets of Sheepshead Bay and was known to all who lived there. In 2002, she, along with her mother, relocated to Liberty, NY. There too, in her adopted community, she explored the streets of her new home and become known and loved by many as a gentle person with a kind, loving heart.

Rita was mother to four children, and had 10 grandchildren. David Burke, her eldest son has two children, Jennifer Garcia and Cynthia Burke. Her second child, Michael Burke married Michelle Da Silva and they have one daughter, Brynn Burke. Her third child and oldest daughter, Fern Burke married Eddie Drumgole (who passed in 2015) and their children are Kaila, Brandonn and Love Drumgole. Her youngest child, Christina Burke, married Gavin Gutierrez and they have four children, Mark and Kaitlyn (Miller) and Amelia and Grace (Gutierrez).

Michael D'Alessandro

June 22, 1954 - May 16, 2016

Loch Sheldrake, NY

Michael D'Alessandro of Loch Sheldrake, NY passed away on May 16, 2016 at Catskill Regional Medical Center. He was 61 years old. He was surrounded by his loving family and those close with him.

Michael is the son of Lenore D'Alessandro and the late Alfred D'Alessandro; he was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 22, 1954. His Mom, Lenore D'Alessandro of Cochecton NY, brothers, Robert D'Alessandro and Richard D'Alessandro of Cochecton NY, Kenneth and Linda D'Alessandro, as well as his two nephews Dylan and James, and his extended family at New Hope Community survive Michael. He is predeceased by his father Alfred D'Alessandro and sister Susan D'Alessandro.

Michael was best described as having a larger than life personality that could brighten up any day. He was a social and outgoing man with a welcoming and endearing smile. His lighthearted spirit was infectious and brought joy to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. Michael was the youngest of five siblings and family was a priority for him. He looked forward to spending quality time with his family and would spend every weekend and holiday with his Mom, brothers and Wilbur their dog. Michael was known for his sarcastic sense of humor and wit. He would often tease people about their cooking, (of course never Mom's cooking). Michael was well known for his artwork and had a nickname of "Picasso". His work has been on display throughout the years at several local art galleries and remains on display in his home. He enjoyed making birthday cards for those closest to him and painting birdhouses. Michael also had a sense of adventure and enjoyed many activities with his brothers such as scuba diving in their pool and hitting the water on a speed boat with friends. Mike was an original member of the horse barn group in Loch Sheldrake and was always so willing to join in and try new things as they pioneered the new program. Mike had a love for music, one of his favorite songs being "This Land is your Land" by Woody Guthrie and he was a devoted fan of his brother Bob's band.

Michael's presence, his spirit, his quick wit and his love for family and friends will be greatly missed. He touched so many people who will forever have good memories to cherish for a lifetime. He will be missed dearly.

Cremation took place at Cedar Hill Crematory in Middle Hope, NY.

There was not a day that went by, that you did not hear her exclaiming, "Hallelujah and Thank You Jesus!!!" When asked how she was doing, "I'm fine, thank the Lord" she would reply with a smile.

Thelma loved to entertain her family and friends. She also loved to grow plants - African Violets were her favorite. She often stated, "I don't let the grass grow under my feet". She had travelled to the Bahama's three times and was on the "Price is Right" game show twice.

Obituary

June Ratner

June 1, 1923 - February 5, 2016

June Ratner was born June Richards on June 1, 1923 in the mining town of Iron River, Michigan, the daughter of the late Thomas and Lillian Richards. She graduated from high school at the age of 16 and began working as a waitress. In 1943, she met her future husband, Louis Ratner, who was in war time service. Lou and June moved to Sullivan County and began to raise a family. In 1953, 4 children later, Lou, a Police Sergeant in Liberty was elected Sheriff of Sullivan County. The family moved to Monticello, where June assumed the duties of matron and head cook at the jail. A fifth child was born in 1956.

Sadly, in 1958, Lou and June separated and eventually divorced. June returned to the family home in Ferndale where she raised their five children. When the children were old enough, she enrolled in Orange County Community College. June, at the age of 50, graduated with honors as a registered nurse.

June began her nursing career at Maimonides Hospital in Liberty, NY and advanced to becoming a charge nurse in the intensive care unit at what is now Catskill Regional Medical Center. When June retired from nursing, she re-engaged her love of gardening and her deep interest in the great philosophers.

June was a brilliant, independent woman with little patience for the trivial. At the age of 80, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and her prognosis after several months of radiation and chemo, was such that hospice was advised. June declined hospice and through shear will and good fate not only survived but thrived for 12 more years.

June's last days were spent being cared for lovingly by the wonderful staff at the SNU unit at Catskill Regional Medical Center. A special thanks to her surgeon and guardian angel, Dr. Abdul Shahzad. We will be forever grateful.

June is survived by sons, Milton (Beatrice) of Liberty, Robert (Denise) of Swan Lake and Daniel (Carlene) of Liberty; grandchildren, James, Joseph (Christie), Jason (Rochel), Robert McLoughlin (Debbie), Jennifer Hoyt (Robert), Tania Milza (Michael), Robert, Melissa, Lindsay Gandulla (Joel), Jaime Marhevsky (Capt. John), Daniel (Jennifer), Pamela Driscoll (Frank), William Hulse and Timothy Hulse (Amber); 22 great-grandchildren; 5 great-great-grandchildren and 3 sisters, Patricia, Marion and Clovis. Also left to miss June is her canine love, Fritz. She will have Gurty and Max, two past pets, to keep her company.

June was predeceased by a daughter, Karen; son, Michael and his wife Eileen; granddaughter, Diahann (Watson) and her husband Robert and several brothers and sisters.

Private services and burial will be held for the family on Monday February 15, 2016 in Liberty, NY.

Catherine Kush

Liberty, NY

Catherine Kush, of Liberty, NY, passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 at the Seaview Hospital & Rehab Nursing Home, Staten Island, where she was a resident. She was 96.

Born on Sept. 2, 1919 in Montreal, Canada, she was the daughter of Richard and Nora Oliver. The family moved to Liberty, NY when she was 2 years old and lived there until illness caused her to reside in Staten Island. She attended St. Peter's Parochial School and Liberty High School. Prior to WW II, she met and married Charles Kush from Pittsburgh, PA. During the war, with Charles fighting in Africa and Italy, Catherine worked in a factory in Hattiesburg, MS making ammunition. Returning to Liberty post war, she held various clerical, administrative and medical assistant jobs working for a physician; a nurse's aide in Maimonides Hospital, at Sears, for a lawyer and as a housekeeper at St. Peter's Rectory.

Catherine volunteered endlessly for St. Peter's Church as a Eucharistic Minister, lector, altar server and calling weekly bingo. She was always there assisting others; driving her younger friends to church, the store , bingo, MD appointments. She was a skilled artist doing both watercolor and oil paintings, preferring oils, all of which she gave away to relatives and friends. Most of all, Catherine enjoyed being with her family and her home was always open to others; a young girl in her early teens who lost both parents; a young mother and baby who were without a home; caring for her late sister, Mary Connell, in her final days.

Her husband, Charles, died in 1957, leaving Catherine to raise her four daughters who survive her: Nancy Lange and her husband Joseph of Staten Island, Joanne Martin of Carmel, NY, Christine Alongi and her husband Peter and Joyce Wright, all of Ft. Myers, FL. Also surviving are 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a son-in-law, James Martin.

Biography

Beatrice Meachum

Liberty, NY

On December 19, 2015, Beatrice Meachum was called home to be with her Lord. She passed away peacefully at Catskill Regional Medical Center with her loving family by her side. She was 94.

"There's magic in a Mother's touch,

And sunshine in her smile.

There's love in everything she does

To make our lives worthwhile.

We can find both hope and courage

Just by looking in her eyes.

Her laughter is a source of joy,

Her works are warm and wise.

There is a kindness and compassion

To be found in her embrace,

And we see the light of Heaven

Shining from a Mother's face."

Beatrice was born on June 26, 1921 in Brooklyn, NY to her late parents, Hans C. and Rose F. Beatrice Jensen. She moved to Liberty in 1946 with her husband and became an active member of the community.

Beatrice looked forward to passing on for she knew she would be with her Lord and could start her ultimate job of looking down on her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren who she loved so dearly. Her final wish would be: "Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glint on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn rain. When you waken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of the quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die."

Beatrice is survived by her five children; Peter C. Meachum and his fiancé, RaeEllen Becker of Swan Lake, NY, Kathleen Meachum of Mechanicsburg, PA, Maureen Barber and her husband Clarence of Liberty, NY, Nancy Meachum of Ilion, NY and Linda Brewer of Bellwood, PA; 13 grandchildren, Todd, Terri, Sandi, Tracy, Samantha, Tonia, Jeremiah, Heather, Christopher, Jasmine, Matthew, Korin and Angela; 32 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren.
