Margaret Mahusky, 64

M argg, as she was known to her friends, passed away June 25, 2014 at the age of 64. She was born May 20, 1950, in Newburgh, N.Y., to Frank and Mary Mahusky. At the age of 10 she and her family relocated to Granville, where in 1968 she graduated from high school. She headed to Hood College and in 1973 graduated Cum Laude from Siena College.
Margg was a lover of the arts and animals. She was a self-employed artisan with her kinetic sculpture business ‘Airrangements.’ She has fostered many dogs over the years and some of her favorite times were enjoyed at the dog park or her own fenced backyard watching the dogs play. Margg also enjoyed scrabble and was quite the competitor in her ‘scrabble club.’
Margg leaves behind her daughter, Jessica Bell Sullivan, son-in-law, Sam Sullivan, and three wonderful grandchildren, Cooper, Sydney and Harrison. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren watching the wildlife in her backyard, doing projects and eating clementines.
Margg is predeceased by her parents Frank and Mary Mahusky and her brother Van Mahusky.
A private memorial will be held at a future date. Contributions may be made in memory of Margg Mahusky to the Hudson Mohawk Humane Society.
