Sis was born January 3, 1930 in Kingston, NY the daughter of the late Burton and Sarah (Davis) Haver. She was married to Stephen A. Nekos, who passed away on October 19, 2004.
Sis raised her family with love and kindness.

She loved working with children. After her retirement she continued to volunteer at the Rosendale Elementary School.
Sis was also the long-time dessert baker for the Hurley Mountain Inn and Nekos Luncheonette. She was a member of the Fair Street Reformed Church and Hurley Reformed Church. Sis was an active volunteer until October 2019 at Angel Food East in Kingston where she helped cook for those who are homebound. Sis always enjoyed horseback riding. She also loved motorcycle riding, four wheeling and boating, all of which she actively participated in throughout the summer and early fall of 2019.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I've known Sis almost all of my life. She'll be missed by so many people, & for so many reasons. RIP Sis

We will keep her in our prayers.

When hearing of Sis's it quickly brought back many fond memories. The Murray's, the Nekos's and us had a lot of good times. She was proud, as she should have been, of all her children. More recently I always enjoyed punching her in the shoulder when going to my seat at the Hurley Reformed Church. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Family. May she rest in piece.
All of what I fondly remember about your folks, Sis (and Stevie) Nekos, I learned from their close friends on Hurley Heights (mainly "Go-Go" Simmons).
What was not to like about your Mom?! Every year I could remember, I looked for a "personalized" birthday card to send her ("Happy Birthday, Sis"!).
One of my major memories from the Lomontville days included the LARGE dogs (small house-HORSES?), the big old golden horse and small black pony in the yard (names escape me).
The first time I tried to ride the family motorbike (?), I spun out in the driveway and came away very scraped up and bruised.
Being around Sis was always lively, with laughter. And, yes, she was very kind... to me, especially when Glo died (2004).
I will miss your Mom but remember her happily when I see you at the pharmacy.
