Joan Liekefet Obituary
Our beloved mother, Joan Liekefet, passed away on November 26, 2016 after a courageous battle with Parkinson's Disease. She was 87. She recently made her home with her son and daughter in law, Eric and Mary in El Paso, Texas. Previously she had lived in Bradenton, Florida, Cambridge, NY, Arlington, VT and Shaftsbury, VT. She was always up for an adventure.

Joan was the daughter of Edna and John Yedinack and was born in New York City.

She married her childhood sweetheart, George Liekefet, in 1949. She attended Hofstra University and was employed for many years at New York Telephone. When George retired, they moved to Vermont where they had many wonderful years together with their daughter and her family.

Joan is survived by her son Eric (Mary) and daughter, Karen (Tony) Urbon and her beloved grandsons, Sam and Ross.

There will be a memorial service on May 20, 2017 at 10am at St. Peter's Church in Bennington, where she was an active parishioner.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, any memorial contributions be made to the Norshaft Lions, where George and Karen were/are members. The address is P.O. Box 179 Shaftsbury, VT. 05262.

Our parents ashes will be spread in Vermont privately, as they wished.
