Mason, Roswith  
Roswith Mason Roswith Renate Arnold Mason, 75, a much-loved teacher and member of the Bruderhof communities, died on Monday, January 19, 2015, surrounded by her family at the Woodcrest Community in Rifton. Roswith was born September 21, 1939, shortly after the outbreak of World War II, in Swindon, Wiltshire, England. Her parents, J. Heinrich and Annemarie Arnold, were political refugees from Nazi Germany. One year later, Roswith's brother Johann Christoph Arnold - today a local author and Bruderhof pastor -- was born. In 1941 her parents, faced with internment as enemy aliens and fearful of a German invasion of Britain, decided to take their family to South America, sailing at the height of the Blitz bombing campaign. There they joined other pioneers building a Bruderhof community in the Paraguayan jungle; in time six more sisters were born. As oldest daughter, Roswith learned responsibility early, often caring for younger siblings. At age sixteen, Roswith immigrated to the United States with her family, settling in Rifton. She attended Kingston High School (class of 1958), then studied art at SUNY New Paltz (BA, 1962). Joining the Bruderhof community, she began a rich 53-year vocation as a teacher in Woodcrest School. Her students recall her passion for art, history, and music, and especially remember her determination to help each child to flourish in all ways, "head, hands, and heart." In this she was following in a family tradition - one ancestor, the educational reformer Friedrich Fröbel, is known as the inventor of the kindergarten. Roswith's life as a teacher was grounded in a down-to-earth faith in Jesus that had been instilled in her by her parents. This faith continued to guide her when, in 1978, she married widower David Mason and became mother to his eight children; she and David then had a daughter and son. In 1983 they lost David's ten-year-old daughter Esther to cancer. Despite such hard times, they raised their large family with a mix of fun, hard work, and open-hearted hospitality. Dogs, sheep and horses - both were animal lovers - were always near at hand. In 2006, Roswith and David were both diagnosed with cancer. He died in 2007, while she battled the disease another eight years. Just two weeks before her death, she taught her last history class to seventh- and eighth-grade students. Roswith's life and legacy will be cherished by her children Gladys, Irene, Christopher, Marion, Eunice, Norann, Hanna, Emmy Marie, and Arnold, by her many grandchildren, and by all who knew her. The funeral service will be private.

McGarry, Kathryn  
Kathryn Elizabeth McGarry Clinton Corners - An inspiring young woman, Kathryn Elizabeth McGarry, is at peace after a 26 year battle with one of the rarest birth defects. Born August 19th, 1988 in Poughkeepsie to Kevin and Colleen McDermott McGarry, she was a lifelong resident of Clinton Corners. A trailblazer for the treatment of KT Syndrome, her death on Sunday January 18th, 2015 was mourned by the staff at Boston Children's Hospital, who admired the courage and the medical knowledge she revealed during her frequent visits. But it was her laughter, "just like Gammy's", and her stoic manner that most inspired the staff, members of the family, and her friends in the community. Despite her disability she graduated from FDR High School, Hyde Park in 2007, served as a Dutchess County Board of Elections inspector, and for as long as she could, she participated in sports and other community activities. Kathryn did not live life as if she was burdened by an incurable condition. Her quick wit, sometimes a bit off-color, and her bright smile put those around her at ease. Self-Employed, she ran her own business called Kathryn's Kreations. In addition to her parents surviving in Clinton Corners, Kathryn is survived by her sister, Colleen McGarry, and brother, Bryan McGarry, both of Clinton Corners; two uncles, John McDermott of Hyde Park, and George McGarry of Deltona, FL; several cousins; and great aunts and uncles. Calling hours will be from 3 to 7 pm, Friday, January 23rd at Sweet's Funeral Home, Inc., Rte. 9, Hyde Park. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Fr. Brendan Fitzgerald at 10 am, Saturday, January 24th at Regina Coeli Church, Rte. 9, Hyde Park. Burial will follow in Friends Cemetery, Clinton Corners. The McGarry family respectfully requests memorial donations to the Boston Children's Hospital, 300 Longwood Ave., Boston, MA 02115.
