Stefana Lesiuk, at the age of 97, passed away peacefully at her home in Cortland, NY on January 1, 2022. Stefana, the wife of her late husband, Nick Lesiuk, is survived by her two sons, Philip (Linda) Lesiuk of Cumberland, RI and Vasil (Terry) Lesiuk of Freeville, NY and her two daughters, Linda Parker of Florida and Virginia (Dan) Sykes of Cortland, NY; five grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.
Stefana loved spending time with her family. She loved watching her grandchildren and kept busy with them. She loved to be outside sitting at her table enjoying the nice weather. If she wasn’t cooking something in the kitchen you could find her out in her many gardens. Stefana had a green thumb for sure, she could grow anything. Along with the love of cooking in the kitchen and gardening, she loved her chickens.
Stefana will be laid to rest privately next to her husband in the Willow Glen Cemetery, Dryden, NY. The family asks that in lieu of flowers a contribution be made to Hospicare & Palliative Care Services, 172 E. King Rd., Ithaca, NY 14850.
