Theodosia J. Liesendahl passed away Sunday morning March 7th at her home in West Camp with her family by her side. Sue was born in 1928 in West Camp at the home of her parents, the late Foster L. and Rosetta J. (O'Banks) Winchell. She graduated from Saugerties High School in 1947 and married Werner Liesendahl in 1950. They built their home in West Camp and raised two sons and two daughters.
Sue was employed at the Saugerties High School for 25 years and was a valued and active member of the St. Paul's Lutheran Church in West Camp for 92 years. She loved to travel and would take frequent trips with family and friends.
A life-long resident of West Camp, she will always be remembered by her family and friends for her love of her church, family and community.
Sue was preceded in death by her husband Werner Liesendahl, son Gary Liesendahl Sr., her two brothers Roger Winchell Sr. and Foster Winchell Jr., and her beloved Bichon Frise Toby.
Sue is survived by her son Jeffrey Liesendahl of Saugerties, daughters Bonnie Myers of Port Orchard WA and Jo Ann Isca and her husband Christopher Isca of Saugerties, along with four grandchildren - Colin Almquist, Matthew Myers, Kimberly McClearn, Gary Liesendahl Jr., and her great-granddaughter Harper Almquist.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Pamela Distefano of Bridge Street Family Medicine and also Hudson Valley Hospice for the compassionate care they provided for Sue. A grave-side service is planned for the spring.
To the Liesendahl and Winchell families. I am so sad to hear of the passing of your mom,(grandma, aunt). Jeff, Bonnie and Jo Ann, I have very fond memories of her at Asbury Park, and when I practically lived at your house years ago. She always made me feel at home. We had alot of fun, and I can still hear her laughter. Thanks for the memories with all of the pictures. They are great. One more picnic table will be added to the group in heaven! I have Josie's grandson Mark in my class this year, and he let me know. I am so grateful to him. Bonnie if you were here, I am so sorry I missed you. I would love to hear from you. Just let the first two words be, "It's Bonnie" so I know it's you. God Bless you all. Love, Leo and Cindy Valenchis (Myer)
To all of Sue's family, My sincere sympathy to all of you. I will cherish my memories of Sue at church, at Bible study on Monday mornings (think the last year was 2015), getting ready for the church dinners and yard sales...she was there to help along with her sister in law, Mary. And on those Monday mornings when Ted and i were pulling into the church parking lot for Bible Study, your Mom was going by, heading to the post office and there was no hesitation about her driving. When Ted could no longer come to church, she never failed to ask me how he was. And she liked to remind Ted he was 4 months younger! Let all of your wonderful and loving memories of her carry you through the months ahead....it is a blessing to me to have known her.
We love you Mom, and miss you terribly already.
