Joy C. Studley died on July 10, 2021 in Weston, Florida. She was the beloved daughter of Benjamin and Francis Leff Cosor, sister of Lewis Cosor, wife of Jack Hill Studley, mother of Jamienne Studley (and her husband Gary Smith) and Jeffrey Studley (and his partner Holly Star), grandmother of Jacqueline (and her partner Ahmad Akhgar) and Lt. Jace Benjamin Studley, and partner of Frank Parrotta.
Joy was a graduate of Woodridge High School and Barnard College, and did post-graduate studies at Columbia University and New York University Law School. She served on the board of directors of Monticello Hospital/Community General Hospital for more than two decades, and on the Ellenville National Bank board. Joy volunteered for the hospital women’s auxiliary, Woodridge PTA, Girl Scouts, and Barnard alumnae activities. She and Jack were co-owners of Green Acres Hotel, Loch Sheldrake, NY, in the late 1960s-early 70s. She was a member of the Liberty, Middletown, and Bonaventure Country Clubs.
Joy was a loving, proud wife and mother, and a loyal and generous cousin, neighbor, and friend to many in Woodridge and Sullivan County, and later in Weston, Florida, where she and Jack were early residents of the Bonaventure community. Joy will be remembered for her devotion and service to Sullivan County; her candor and problem-solving; her affection for chocolate, fast cars, and schnauzers; and her exceptional sense of style. Her standout accomplishments range from planning an unforgettable seven week tour of Europe for her family in 1964 to winning club championships at three different country clubs, the last at the age of 80, and completing the NYT crossword puzzle in ink throughout her life.
The Studley family is grateful to Lilly Bodon and Norma Miranda for their patient, attentive care for Joy in her last years, and to the doctors and nurses at the Cleveland Clinic, Weston.
A celebration of Joy’s life will be scheduled in the fall. A memorial will be placed in the cemetery in Glen Wild, NY alongside Jack and near Ben, Fan and Lewis Cosor. The family welcomes contributions to the Cosor-Studley Fund through the Fallsburg Central School Scholarship Fund, c/o Business Office, PO Box 124, Fallsburg, NY 12733.
