The family would like to acknowledge the special care provided by Kevin, Tonya, Danielle, and Collette of Hudson Valley Hospice.
Pappy and her husband, P.G.A. Professional, Harvey Bostic together formed a powerful and dynamic husband and wife team that ran the Wiltwyck Golf Club golf operation and pro shop for 27 years. Her service to the membership at Wiltwyck and contribution to the local golf community will always be remembered by the people that knew her. The young adults that were mentored by her kindness and guidance will always be a large part of her love for her golf family. Pappy was the 1975 Ulster County Women's Golf Association Champion, and later added the title of U.C.W.G.A. Senior Champion.
Pappy enjoyed golf, skiing, the beach, Mahjong, and especially the company of her family and circle of friends. She will be remembered by them as a caring, loving, compassionate person that held her friendships and respect for other in high regard. Everyone who knew her loved her. Pappy leaves this world with wonderful memories of a life that was filled with love, grace, friendships, community, and the knowledge that she touched the lives of the people that knew her. She was a special person.
