Obituary of Elva Pekarsky
On Saturday, February 2, 2019, Elva Samonte Pekarsky peacefully passed at the age of 76 years.
She was the devoted wife of Arnold Pekarsky, who predeceased her; they lived many loving and memorable years together. A loving sister to her brothers, Orlando, Serafin, Emigardo, Edmundo and sister, Eloisa, and the beloved aunts to her numerous nieces and nephews in the Philippines, she will forever be remembered and cherished.
Elva lived in Manila and Los Angeles before settling and calling Dutchess County, NY her treasured home. As a member of the Hudson Valley Filipino-American community, she took great pride in sharing Filipino culture with anyone she met.
Elva is fondly remembered by her numerous friends in Wappingers Falls and at the Town of Wappinger Senior Center, which provided a constant fountain of enjoyment and happiness. She loved sharing a good meal with friends and family while entertaining with music. Loving and singing the musicals of Rodgers and Hammerstein, she drew positive inspiration from the stories and lyrics her entire life. Remembered for her genuine kindness, generous spirit and cheerful personality, Elva wholeheartedly enjoyed the simple pleasures that life brings and lived every moment to the fullest.
