Annette L. "Pappy" Bostic, born in Binghamton, NY to Arthur and Ardith Evans on April 14th, 1938, transitioned from this world on Wednesday morning, January 29th, 2020 in the loving company of her family at home. The family would like to acknowledge the special care provided by Kevin, Tonya, Danielle, and Collette of Hudson Valley Hospice.

Pappy and her husband, P.G.A. Professional, Harvey Bostic together formed a powerful and dynamic husband and wife team that ran the Wiltwyck Golf Club golf operation and pro shop for 27 years. Her service to the membership at Wiltwyck and contribution to the local golf community will always be remembered by the people that knew her. The young adults that were mentored by her kindness and guidance will always be a large part of her love for her golf family. Pappy was the 1975 Ulster County Women's Golf Association Champion, and later added the title of U.C.W.G.A. Senior Champion.

Pappy enjoyed golf, skiing, the beach, Mahjong, and especially the company of her family and circle of friends. She will be remembered by them as a caring, loving, compassionate person that held her friendships and respect for other in high regard. Everyone who knew her loved her. Pappy leaves this world with wonderful memories of a life that was filled with love, grace, friendships, community, and the knowledge that she touched the lives of the people that knew her. She was a special person.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years Harvey R. Bostic of Kingston. They wed on July 14, 1957 at Fair Street Reformed Church in Kingston. She also leaves behind her two children, Harvey M.

"I have very fond memories as one of her ?boys?. I worked in pro shop for many years and caddied for her when she won the county tournament. Pappy was hard working and liked and respected by all who knew her. During retirement, I saw her frequently when she was in Stuart, FL and during the warmer months in Kingston. She always had an upbeat attitude. We miss you already Pappy!"

"Pappy was a Special person, not only to Ann and I, but the many people she met over the years at Wiltwyck Golf Club. I fondly remember her and Harvey sitting with me in the front pew at the Hurley Reformed Church every Sunday, until her breathing got to a point she could not attend. Our thoughts and prayers go out the whole Bostic Family,"

"R.I.P. Mrs. Bostic. I can still hear your voice shouting out "Hopher" when you walked into the Pro Shop as you recognized me in the room. I am sure I am speaking for all the past Junior Golfers at Wiltwyck. We appreciate all the advice and love you expressed towards us over that great period of our lives. You were like a second mom to all of us. You will be missed but never forgotten Mrs. B. Love Chris (Hopher) . Godspeed. "
