November 14, 1935March 11, 2021

Fouzia Khalil ("Um Khalil) born November 14, 1935, fell asleep in the Lord on March 11, 2021.

Fouzia was preceded in death by her late husband, Ibrahim Khalil and her late son Jack. Married for more than 50 years, she was the mother of eight children: Ida (John), Jacqueline (of late, Nabil) Charlie (Hala), her late son Jack (Julie), Susan (Emile), Joseph (Fidda), Renee (Elias) and Yvette, and through them 28 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She was beloved by her entire family and was always kind to all who crossed her path. A life-long faithful member of the Virgin Mary Antiochian Orthodox Church, Yonkers, New York, she loved attending church services and would always participate in the chanting services. Her commitment to her faith was exemplary always leaving everything in God's hands. Leaving her roots in Jordan, she immigrated to the United States with her husband and young children with her hopes and dreams. Throughout the years she worked tirelessly to raise her 8 children with important family values of honesty, hard-work and commitment. The fruits of her hard labor are evident in her children and their respective families. Her home was always opened to all and her warm greetings and dinner table abundant to all guests. She will be greatly missed. The pain of this loss is only tempered by knowing that her faith in Christ, Jesus, was strong and unwavering. May she be numbered among the righteous and the saints and may her memory be eternal. Visiting hours will be at Whalen & Ball Funeral Home on Friday 5-8pm. Funeral Service will be celebrated in Virgin Mary Antiochian Orthodox Church on Saturday March 13th at 10am. Interment will follow at Mt. Hope Cemetery.
