Obituary for Edna Grace Machnicki

Edna Grace Machnicki, a lifetime resident died on September 12, 2020, just five days after her eighty second birthday.

The daughter of William and Pearl Baird Howard, she was born in Otisville on September 7, 1938. She graduated from Otisville High School and was a devoted alumnus of her class and she remained friends with many of her classmates throughout the years. Edna worked for many years at the Middletown Psych Center as a Therapy Aide and after retirement filled her days working with various organizations helping others.

In her younger days, Edna was known for her affinity for sports, especially softball, in which she excelled. She played bingo, worked on puzzles, enjoyed luncheon outings with friends, and loved her dog, Ethel.

She was a member of the Otisville Presbyterian Church, loyal and longtime member of the Middletown Elks #1097, more recently the Port Jervis Elks Lodge #645, and the Mt. Hope Seniors. For years she chaired the popular Polish Dinner Dances at the Elks , sold many raffle tickets for the support of community causes, and was recognized as the Elk’s and Lion’s Club Citizen of the year.

She is survived by a son, William Monaco (Gabi) in Germany, a stepson Eddie Machnicki (Krissy) in Honesdale, PA, a daughter, Carol Allen in Colorado, and sister-in-law Eleanor Howard, in Middletown, several nieces and nephews and beloved dog, Ethel., as well as many friends and acquaintances who enjoyed her friendship and her pleasant personality.

She was predeceased by her parents, her husband Edward, brother William Howard and her sister Beatrice Goes.

A special thanks to Dr. John Ferguson for his many years of compassionate care, Garnet Health; Dr. Vincent Gulfo and the entire Rehab Team and her angels Grace, Rhonda and Andrea for their Love, time and patience.
