Vic­to­ria Mary Kosiba, 82, of Glasco

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

Vic­to­ria Mary Kosiba, age 82, much trea­sured mother, grand­mother, wife, aunt and friend, loved build­ing her col­lec­tion of an­gel stat­ues. On Sun­day, Nov. 20, 2016, Vickie be­came an an­gel watch­ing over all of us. She passed from this earth sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Vickie was born in Catskill, N.Y., on Aug. 28, 1934, to An­to­nio and Vic­to­ria Sangi. She grad­u­ated from Sauger­ties High School at age 16 and spent sev­eral years as a valued sec­re­tary with firms in New York City. She re­turned to Sauger­ties and mar­ried John who, in her words “put her on a pedestal”. She and John had a ful­fill­ing life rais­ing their five chil­dren in Lake Ka­trine. In 1980 they re­lo­cated to Austin, Texas, with four of the chil­dren. Her beloved hus­band John went to heaven in 1981.

Next to her grand­chil­dren, cook­ing for her fam­ily and friends was one of her great pas­sions. She loved shar­ing her food gifts with the fam­ily, be­stow­ing on all ev­ery­thing from the world’s best meat­balls to her fa­mous ba­nana and Amish breads. Vickie was an avid gar­dener tak­ing great pride in all the beau­ti­ful flow­ers her green thumb pro­duced. Most im­por­tant to Vickie though was her fam­ily, neigh­bors and friends.

Vickie is sur­vived by her son, Vic­tor Kosiba and fi­ancée Can­dace Smith; son, Ralph Kosiba and wife Su­san; son, John Kosiba and wife Dianna; daugh­ter, Joanne Brock­way and hus­band Dan, and daugh­ter, Laurie Miller. She has seven pre­cious grand­chil­dren, Jes­sica Se­graves and hus­band Stephan, Michael Miller, Jennifer Kosiba, Amanda Brock­way, Catie Kosiba, Sarah Kosiba and fi­ancé Ian McPher­son and Mi­randa Miller. Vickie is also sur­vived by her sis­ters Josephine Peter­son, Tonita Lezette and her hus­band Karl and Deb­o­rah Freiburg. In ad­di­tion, she re­ceived great joy from many nieces and neph­ews in up­state New York.

The fam­ily will re­ceive friends Fri­day evening, Nov. 25, 2016, from 6 to 7 p.m. with a Vigil at 7 p.m. at Cook-Walden Chapel of the Hills, 9700 Anderson Mill Road, Austin, Texas, 78750. The me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at the same lo­ca­tion on Satur­day, Nov. 26, 2016, at 10 a.m. fol­lowed by in­tern­ment at Cap­i­tal Me­mo­rial Park in Pflugerville, Texas.
