Barbara Ann Williams of Chester, N.Y., a Registered Nurse for Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and a 41-year resident of the area, died July 6, 2018, at her residence. She was 63.

Daughter of the late Vincent and Irene Januska, she was born in Queens, N.Y., in 1954.

Barbara was a longtime member of St. Columba Roman Catholic Church in Chester.

Her nine grandchildren were her world, she enjoyed traveling with them and watching them grow. She loved her beach in the summer and family ski trips in the winter. Family was most important to her and she cherished every moment. There is neither a writer nor poet that could describe how she will be missed, nor how much she was loved by her family.

She is survived by her husband, Donald Williams; their children, Michelle and her husband, Brent Masucci, of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., Donald and his wife, Jennifer Williams, of Goshen, N.Y., Christopher and his wife, Kristen Williams, of Chester; nine grandchildren, Andrew, Bradley, Madison and Katelyn Masucci, Kellan, Bryce, Caden, Chloe and Carter; brother, Vincent, and his wife, Maureen; and eight nieces and nephews.

A Funeral Mass will be offered on Tuesday, July 10, at 11 a.m. in St. Columba Roman Catholic Church, 27 High St., Chester. Cremation will follow at Oxford Hills Crematory, Chester.

As per Barbara’s wishes, In memoriam please perform a random act of kindness or two, or plant a tree or two — and “Live, Love and Laugh.”
