Obituary of Meta M. Kaedy
Meta Kaedy - beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother - passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 18, 2023, at the age of 83.
Meta, a lifelong resident of Poughkeepsie, NY, was born on May 5, 1939 to the late Ferdinand and Mildred Werth and grew up alongside her brother, Robert, who also preceded her in death.
She was a graduate of Poughkeepsie High School, Class of 1957. It was there that she met her high school sweetheart, Richard Kaedy and the two were married on June 1, 1958.
Meta and Richard shared a beautiful life together. They grew a family and raised three children, supported each other through challenges and difficult times, welcomed and loved grandchildren wholeheartedly, shared countless dances together, celebrated alongside their first great-grandchild, and laughed every single day.
Meta left her job at Marine Midland Bank to focus on her growing children, and rejoined the workforce eventually finding herself working in the housewares department at Marshall’s until her retirement in 1993. Aside from her work, Meta was an avid reader that consumed her fair share of romance and mystery novels. She never met a word search puzzle that was too challenging. When watching Jeopardy! She was always prepared to get the most correct answers. Every task was always a musical event for her, usually including Doris Day’s “Qué Será, Será.” And during the summertime, she loved to go camping, often visiting Lake George, with her family - a passion that was passed down to her grandchildren, as well.
Meta is survived and missed by many, including her husband of 64 years, Richard, and their children: Lisa Borsuk and her husband, John, of Nicholasville, KY, Patrick Kaedy and his wife, Lisa, of Henderson, NV, and Kelly Wilson and her husband, Wayne, of Highland, NY. She also leaves behind her grandchildren who will miss her terribly: Michael Borsuk and his fiancée, Danielle Keller, Eric Borsuk, Allison Mando and her husband, Joseph, Douglas Kaedy, Alexis Wilson, and Kristina Mulligan, her husband, DJ, and their son Flynn (Meta’s great-grandchild).
Viewing hours will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, from 12PM-1:30PM at the Timothy P. Doyle Funeral Home 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie NY 12603, with prayers from 1:30PM-2:00PM. Burial will be at St. Peter’s Cemetery (171 Salt Point Turnpike, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603). In lieu of flowers, the family requests that gifts in Meta’s honor be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association or the March of Dimes, both of which were close to her heart.
