Obituary of Mary Ruschak

Mary Ruschak (nee Hard) passed away peacefully at the Hudson Valley Hospital in Peekskill, NY on September 18, 2019.  She was 90 years old.

Mary was born in Peekskill to the late Francis Benjamin (Frank) and Lavinia Hard on December 22, 1928 and was a life-long resident of the city. She was pre-deceased by her husband, Robert (Bud) Ruschak who passed away in September, 2007; 3 brothers Thomas Hard (Audrey) of Roanoke, VA, John Henry Hard (Janet) of Peekskill and Joseph Hard (Gwen) of Stoney Point, NY and her dog Samuel Adams. She is survived by her brother Robert Hard (Pam) of Garrison and sister Kathryn Lounsbury (David) of Peekskill.

She is survived by her two sons, Randy and Ron, her 4 grandchildren - Casey Ruschak Taylor, Jason Ruschak (Melissa), Ryan Ruschak and Carly Ruschak and her 3 great-grand children Evan Michel, Charlotte Rae Taylor and Rowan Ruschak.

Also surviving Mary are numerous nieces and nephews. Please forgive us for not mentioning all of you individually – but you are loved.

Mary graduated from Hendrick Hudson High School and spent her entire professional career at New York Telephone Company on Brown St, Peekskill and the Beach Shopping Center – a span of over 35 years.

She enjoyed photography, her dog Reo, playing on the computer (Facebook follower & creating  greeting cards) and was a wonderful baker and seamstress. Of course she delighted in spending time with her immediate family spanning four generations, her brother Bob and sister Kathy – especially rewarding were the Sunday afternoon get-togethers with sister Kathy her niece Kathy Ann & her husband Skip Alsdorf.

We will greatly miss her quick and sharp wit and her delicious cookies and cakes.
