Howansky, Jr. (Patricia) of St. Cloud, FL, Robert Howansky (Deborah) of Cohoes, Ronald Howansky (Debbie) of Troy and Linda Libera (John) of Charlton, MA. She is also survived by her 6 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her siblings, Anna Drzewiecki, Stella Dabek, Bertha Schultz.
