Virginia Nowak, 96, passed away on April 24, 2019 in Goshen, NY. She was born on September 18, 1922 to Frank and Anna (Heter) Palmer.
She would say her proudest achievement was the creation of a new generation with her daughters Paula (Vincent) Kujawski, Susan (Glenn) Kleveno, Melissa (Bill) Elwood; grandchildren Kristopher (Frieda) and Evan (Keith) Kujawski, Loryn (Alex) Atkins, Kolin (Danielle) Kleveno, Corrine (Henry) De Sosa, T.J. (Michelle) Feagles, and Courtney Elwood; great-grandchildren Faith Wong-Kujawski, Caiden De Sosa, and Mikayla and Greyson Kleveno. She was predeceased by her husband, Albert, whom she cared for tirelessly for 10 years through his battle with Alzheimer’s; daughter, Angel; son-in-law Vincent; brothers and sisters, Frankie, Eddie, Daniel, Betty, Pauline, and Fanny. She is survived by sisters, Rita Nowak and Dolores Palmer. She was an amazing and caring wife, mother & grandmother. She loved going up to camp with her family all year long.
The family is very grateful for her loving caregivers, Taso and Nino; the nurses and staff at Valley View, and the emergency service members who came to her aid over the years. She is at peace now.
