Georgette E. Krauss

Jewett,NY Krauss- Georgette, beloved sister, aunt and friend, passed away on May 3, 2016, at age 72, after suffering a stroke at her home. Georgette had lived in Jewett, New York, since 1988. Born in Jackson Heights, Queens, she was the daughter of Dr. George G. Krauss and Mrs. Evelyn (Weiss) Krauss. Georgette earned a law degree and practiced real estate in Brooklyn before moving up the mountain, where she served as Town Judge and Sole Assessor for the towns of Jewett and Lexington. Georgette is survived by her sister, Stephanie Farrell, her neice, Deirdre Gabbay, her nephew, Stephen Farrell, and her beloved animal companions, Raney and Sophie. A memorial gathering will be held for her friends and family at Decker Funeral Home in Windham on Saturday, May 7, at 2-4 pm. Donations in her honor may be made to Animal Kind in Hudson, New York.


At one time, Georgette and I considered each other to be very good friends. I don't know what happened, but she was angry at me for something and chose to never communicate with me about it, although I did try to reach out, while she was running for office in Jewett. Many years ago, Georgette had a neighbor who was a very good friend of mine (Denise Sugrue). I lost contact with Denise and found out just this week that Denise and her younger sister both passed away. I tried to contact Georgette, in the hope that she could help me contact Denise's father who it appears, is still alive. And so I found this. I am so sorry for your loss, and so sorry that I didn't try harder to maintain my friendship with Georgette. I see that her dog Samantha and her older kitty died (they would be 100 if they were still alive) - are her two younger kitties well-taken care of? With much sadness, Ellen Schorsch
