Elizabeth Marie Harschow
April 17, 1957 – July 13, 2019
Elizabeth Harschow died July 13th after a long illness. Her quirky humor and upbeat personality will be sorely missed by family and friends. After graduating from New Paltz High School, she earned a degree in Forestry and from Paul Smith’s College. Elizabeth then joined the army, where she taught geodetic surveying at Defense Mapping School at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. After leaving the army, she worked for Bendix, a subsidiary of N.O.A.A. and travelled extensively to remote areas surveying, including Alaska, South America, and Easter Island. Elizabeth then worked stateside for various survey and engineering groups. She returned to the Hudson Valley in 2008 to begin her 11 year battle with Cancer, during which time she was an active member of various village boards.
Elizabeth is survived by her mother, Trudy Harschow and her sister, Julie Harschow, both of New Paltz. She was predeceased by her father, William Harschow.
There will be a memorial service at a later date.
Donations can be made to the ASPCA and/ or the American Cancer Society.
