Miss Mildred Charnetsky

May 10, 1917 - April 21, 2017

Mildred "Millie" Charnetsky formerly of Johnson City

Mildred (Millie) Charnetsky, dearly beloved sister, aunt and friend, fell asleep in the Lord on Friday morning, April 21, 2017 at Groton Community Nursing Home, Groton, NY. Born to Anna and Harry Charnetsky in Johnson City, NY on May 10, 1917, Millie was 99 when she passed away peacefully. She was 20 days short of her 100th birthday. 

Millie was a faithful member of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Johnson City, NY, a church that her father helped found.  Millie selflessly devoted her life to others; she was a loving caregiver for her parents and her sister for many years.  After Millie’s retirement from IBM as an Executive Secretary, Millie regularly visited shut-ins from her church. While she never married and had no children of her own, she was like a mother to all of her nieces and nephews. She never forgot a birthday. When asked for help, her wise advice was always sensitive and exactly what we needed to help solve problems.

She is survived by her loving brother and sister-in-law, Harry and Helen Charnetsky, Lansing, NY. They were her caregivers for the last 10 years. Millie is also survived by her sister-in-law Blanche Charnetsky, Binghamton, NY and 11 nieces and nephews and their families, whom she adored: Michael Charnetsky, Binghamton, NY; Peter Charnetsky, Vestal, NY; Richard Charnetsky, Tucson, AZ; David Tomik, Tampa, FL; Carol Williams, Murrells Inlet, SC;  Cathy Beard, Binghamton, NY; Rose Kelly, Clayton, NC;  John Tomik, Virginia Beach, VA; Harry Thomas Charnetsky, Johnson City, NY; Denise Moore, Lansing, NY; and Diane Charnetsky Albrecht, Endicott, NY.  She is also survived by Carol Tomik, Schenectady, NY, the widow of Millie’s nephew, Daniel Tomik.  Millie is predeceased by her siblings Mary Charnetsky, Sophie Tomik, Peter Charnetsky and Michael Charnetsky.

The family extends grateful thanks to her physician Lazarus Gehring, MD, the staff at the Memory Care Unit at Castle Gardens, Vestal and Groton Community Nursing Home for her care.

Millie will always be remembered.  With a twinkle in her blue eyes and lovely blond hair, she was gorgeous and always impeccably dressed. And never seemed to age. A wise, gracious, generous, kind, intelligent woman.  Beautiful in all ways.  She loved her family, her church, the song “You are My Sunshine” and the color blue. We hope that Millie’s life inspires you to do good and keep hope and faith alive.

A luncheon will follow at St. John’s Memorial Hall.  Please also remember Millie with an unexpected act of kindness in her name.
