She was the daughter of the late Joseph Washousky and Angela Fela, born on June 10, 1952, in Liberty, NY.
She was a loving person that knew how to brighten everyone’s day. She had a special aura about her and a positive outlook on life that always made you feel good after talking to her. Many may remember her as an educator at Sullivan County BOCES where she started the Early Childhood Program. She dedicated countless hours to bettering all of the children that she came across throughout her career. She was a member of the Grace Episcopal Church of Port Jervis, where she frequently helped with the food pantry. She had many interests and hobbies throughout her life, such as reading, golfing, visiting the beach, cooking, swimming, drawing, and going to Florida for half the year. She always took pride in her appearance and carried herself with dignity and grace. She loved animals, especially dogs, Yorkies in particular. With everything she loved and enjoyed doing she had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren. She loved spending as much time as she could with them.
