Elizabeth Joanne Green Ozolins Burger
June 2, 1946 - April 13, 2021
Woodbourne, NY
Elizabeth Joanne Green Ozolins Burger, 74, known to many as Joanne, passed away on April 13, 2021 after her complications due to surgery. The loss of such an incredible woman has left those closest to her with a piece of their hearts missing.
She was born on June 2, 1946 as the only daughter of Betty and Pete Green.
Joanne worked as a Registered Nurse who was dedicated to her career often expressing that "everyone needs care." She worked at Harris Hospital in both the Operating and Emergency Rooms as well as at the Sullivan County Maximum Correctional Facility and finally retiring from Sullivan County Jail. She truly made a difference in all aspects of her work and personal life, she had incredible faith that gave others around her hope. She endeavored to instill compassion, dependability, loyalty, good morals and strong work ethics in the people around her. She had a true appreciation for life which was felt by all who knew her; her friends and family were what made her rich in life.
In her free time she found enjoyment in reading, discussing movies, playing bingo and camping. She also volunteered her time to the Woodbourne Fire Department, who she considered to be extended family.
We find comfort in knowing that this is not goodbye and that our belief is that we will someday meet again.
Joanne leaves behind to cherish her memory her children: Aija, Julie, Ali and Alex; her grandchildren: Vizma, Trysten, Finn, Kira, Alayna, AJ, Gavin, Starr, Ashton and Evan; siblings: Stephen, Richard, and Kenny; niece and nephews: Amey, Timothy, Brian and Matt; as well as many friends and confidants. She is predeceased by her husbands, George and Robert; brother, Tommy and grandson, Bastian.
A celebration of Joanne's life will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 10th at Woodbourne Fireman's Park Pavilion, 560 Hasbrouck A Road, Woodbourne, NY 12788. We hope that all who attend will show their love for a woman who has touched so many hearts in such a beautiful way.
