Amelia Woodard

ELIZABETHTOWN — Amelia "Betty" (Nowakowski) Haverlick, 99, died peacefully Sept. 3, 2013, at Horace Nye Nursing Home in Elizabethtown. She had been experiencing declining health since shortly after her 99th birthday, which was celebrated with numerous family members in February this year. She was born February 8, 1914 in Utica, N.Y., to Stella and Walter Nowakowski. She was the third youngest of ten siblings. All of her siblings had predeceased her and she is the only family member to have reached this age. Her parents had immigrated to the United States from Poland in the early 20th century and settled in the Mohawk Valley, where they initially lived in Herkimer. They subsequently moved to Westmoreland, N.Y., where her parents ran a very active and productive dairy farm where all family members worked. Amelia attended school until tenth grade, then worked as a Nurses Aide at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Utica, attended the Utica School of Commerce and worked at Mele Manufacturing for over ten years. In 1938 she married John J. Haverlick Sr., to whom she remained married to until his death in May, 1981. Afterwards, she had a special companionship with Raymond Moore, who also predeceased her.

She is survived by her daughter, Helene Fuller and her husband Bruce of Rome, N.Y., and their three children, Lee Griffith (and his children, LeeAndra, Bradlee and Marleena) who reside in Florida, Andy Griffith (and his wife Sheila and their children, Kiera and Jack) who reside in Maryland and Michele Ricker (and her husband John and their children, Austin and Brooklyn) who also reside in Maryland. She also is survived by her son, John J. Haverlick Jr. and his wife Debra Whitson, their two sons, Justin and Noah who reside in Keene Valley, N.Y., and John's adult children, Mako Haverlick (and his wife, Monica and their children, Matthew and Marisa) who reside in Virginia and Naomi Haverlick who resides in Nevada.
