Gloria Bilcik of Chester, N.Y., a homemaker and a 50-year resident of the area, died peacefully at her home on Jan. 18, 2018. She was 84.

She was a very active member of St. Columba Roman Cathlic Church, St. Columba Ladies Auxiliary and the Chester Golden Age Club.

She was always proud of the fact that she was the foster mother to 56 children in need. The only aspect of life bigger than her contagious laugh, was her love of children and animals.

She was the widow of Lt. Rudy Bilcik (NYFD).

She is survived by her children, Christopher, Debbie and Michael; grandson, Bryce, Tyler and Owen; nephews, John and Mike Muskus.

Visitation was held Jan. 23 at Flynn Funeral & Cremation Memorial Centers, Chester. A Funeral Mass will be held Jan. 24 at St. Columba Roman Catholic Church, Chester. Burial followed at St. Columba Church Parish Cemetery, Route 94, Chester.

The family has specifically requested that friends do not send flowers. In lieu thereof, honor Gloria by providing memorial contributions in her name to Pets Alive at 363 Derby Rd., Middletown, NY 10940 (petsalive.com).
