Alice W. Muzynski

Rhinebeck – Alice Winchester Muzynski, 93, a former longtime resident of Millerton, passed away peacefully on March 2, 2022 at The Meadows in Rhinebeck, NY. Alice was born March 31, 1928 in Sharon, CT to the late Milo and Louise (Barrett) Winchester. She attended schools in Highland, Millerton, and Pine Plains before graduating in 1946. She then attended the Krissler Business Institute in Poughkeepsie, NY from 1946 to 1947. Although Alice had a long professional career that lasted almost 50 years, she often mentioned how one of her favorite jobs was working as a bank teller, especially meeting Richard Chamberlain, the famous actor who played Dr Kildare. On June 10, 2000, she married Edward J. Muzynski, Jr. who survives the home. Alice will always be remembered for her love of family, her friendship with Buddy the ruffed grouse, camping in Copake Falls and Rhode Island, summers on Mount Riga, and the sewing she learned as a little girl from her cousin and of all the many counted cross-stitch pictures and personalized family Christmas stockings she has made.

In addition to her husband, Alice is survived by her sister Jean Kleinhomer, three children, Susan Perotti (Robert), George Beckwith (Lenice), Linda Rowland (Jess) and five stepchildren, Carolyn Hart (John), Joan Muzynski – Dupree (Arthur), Amy Muzynski, Elizabeth Means (Bruce) and Douglas McKenzie (Linda); nineteen grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.
