Oksana Paschenko, 42, was released to the heavens on June 27, 2020, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Born and raised in Pyshkivtsi, western Ukraine, Oksana became a Williamsburg resident in 2006 along with her husband Serhiy. After finding a passion for helping and serving other people, Oksana was able to start a successful career in the restaurant industry and has been recognizable and loved figure among employees and patrons.
Oksana will be remembered for her gentle nature and a genuinely strong spirit, her warm heart, and glowing eyes. But more than anything she will be remembered for devotion to her daughter Yulia, 14, son Roman, 18, and the love she and her husband Serhiy shared for over 20 years.
Oksana will be laid to rest in her native town in Ukraine where her children, mother, sister, and other family members and friends grieve in anticipation of Oksana’s last homecoming.
