Judythe Ann Ghosio, (née Monette), of Greenport, died July 18 after a 12-year battle with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She was 71 and will surely be missed.
Born June 28, 1944, in Jamaica, Queens, to George and Gertrude Monette, she grew up in Levittown and Northport where, at the age of 14, she met her future husband, Robert Ghosio. After graduating from Northport High School, they married and have been married 51 years. Having lived in the Lake Ronkonkoma area most of their lives, they moved to Greenport in 2003 to be near family.
Judy was a feisty and very intelligent person who worked as Full Charge Bookkeeper and was a very active member of Lake Ronkonkoma United Methodist Church. It was there that she co-founded the nursery school some 40 years ago and acted as the treasurer. She was a devoted volunteer who was also an avid bowler, superb cook, and loved to garden, crochet, and read. She would relax by playing her piano.
Judy was proud of having raised five successful children who give to the church and community. She is survived by her husband, her sons, Robert Jr. (Gail) of Greenport, Christopher (Theresa) of Wading River, Matthew (Kathy) of Shirley, Jonathon (Holly) of Ronkonkoma, her daughter Serena of Tampa, FL., seven grandchildren, Robert III, Zachary, Christa, Kelly, Meghan, David, Jonathon Jr., and her brother Doug Monette (Joanne) of Selden.
