Pauline Oshetski, beloved wife, mommy, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and daughter, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 17, 2023. Her warmth, generosity, laughter, quick wit, listening ear, impeccable style, and deep love for her family will be sorely missed.
Pauline was a voracious gardener and talented quilter. Her enthusiasm for sports was genuine; she knew the stats, and strategies of all of her grandchildren along with several famous tennis players, Roger Federer being her favorite. Given any opportunity, Pauline enjoyed traveling and spending time with friends and family.
Pauline was the wife of Dr. Anthony Oshetski, her husband of over 50 years who predeceased her in December 2007. She raised four devoted children: Lori Bacchia of Port Charlotte, Florida; Linda Oshetski-Johnson of Westport, CT; John Oshetski of Penryn, CA, and Ruth-Ann Reinhardt who preceded her in 2021. She was beloved by her grandchildren Jack Bacchia who predeceased her in December 2019, Jeannette Bacchia, Samantha August, Taylor Nielsen, Matty Johnson, Meghan Johnson, Max Oshetski, and Maya Oshetski. She also was blessed to have a great-granddaughter, Aleyna August, and numerous nieces and nephews of the seven siblings whom she loved dearly. Pauline also leaves behind her son-inlaws, Matt Johnson, John Reinhardt, Jack Bacchia, and Paul Nielsen, and her daughter-in-law, Christina Oshetski.
Affectionately known as “Mere” for her warm smile and nurturing spirit, Pauline has left an impression on all who have had the privilege to know and love her. She will be truly missed and memories of her will be cherished forever. A Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, June 9, 2023 at St. John the Evangelist Church, in Schenectady followed by Entombment in Saratoga National Cemetery at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Connecticut Hospice.
