NEW CITY: Evelyn Kolodzi passed away peacefully at the age of 74 on January 28, 2022.
Evelyn was born in Brooklyn, NY on June 29, 1947 to Carmella (Macchio) and Henry Kolodzi who predeceased her.
While living in Brooklyn, her playground was biking and catching tadpoles in Prospect Park, the wonders of The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and the rough surf at Coney Island. Many weekends were spent in NYC at the battleship piers, Hayden’s Planetarium, NYC museums, and, last but not least, the end of the day pretzel on the Staten Island Ferry before heading back to Brooklyn. In 1959 the family moved to New City, NY.
She is survived by her sister, Phyllis Schweizer and husband Bruce of Pearl River, her beloved niece and nephew Kristin Schweizer of Fairfield CT and David Schweizer of Northvale, NJ who she would always whisk off to Fire Island and Rye Beach for weekend jaunts. She also leaves behind David’s wife, Caridad, and her beautiful grandniece and nephew Beyla and Nolan Schweizer of Northvale, NJ whom she loved so deeply along with so many dear friends. She was the official family liaison with all of her first cousins, known intimately to her as sisters and brothers. She heartbreakingly leaves behind her soulmate, Glen Poulin, for whom she deeply cared.
For now, if you’re stuck in the place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming, maybe all of us can meet there sometime – go on adventures together - climb mountains, swim the oceans, explore galaxies. She would like that.
For all eternity know that Evelyn will smile down on all those she loved.
