Barbara O’Han
Rhinebeck, NY
A familiar and beloved figure in the village of Rhinebeck, Barbara O‘Han, passed away peacefully February 2, 2006 with her family prayerfully by her side. At the time of her death she was surrounded by her eight children. Her husband of 59 years, John Charles O’Han, Sr., passed away September 10, 2002. Mrs. O’Han was remembered today as a person of rare beauty and goodness, extraordinary devotion to family and to God, and boundless love, kindness and generosity to all who knew her.
Barbara O’Han, was born Barbara Accetta on January 20, 1925, in New York City, the only daughter of Elmo and Rose Accetta, recently arrived in the United States from their home in the small village of Sacco, southeast of Salerno, in southern Italy. She grew up in the Bronx, New York with her parents and her three brothers, Nicholas, Joseph, now diseased, and Elmo. She would often reminisce about annual summer vacations, a great luxury for a child raised during the Depression, in a little cottage her father had built in Elmont, New York. Barbara Accetta was an excellent student. In the sixth grade she was promoted into the Rapid Classes, which enabled her to graduate at age 16 from the James Monroe High School An expert typist and stenographer, upon graduation she went immediately to work at The Western Union Company in Lower Manhattan. Later, in addition to the constant demands of raising her large family, Mrs. O’Han would apply these business skills as her husband’s secretary and assistant in his many entrepreneurial ventures.
Barbara Accetta met John O’Han in 1940, when she was fifteen years-old. On their first date, he took her to Coney Island, where she took her first, and last, ride on the famous rollercoaster there. After her graduation from High School, they became engaged. In May of 1943, they married. Mr. O’Han had already received his induction orders from the United States Army. A civil ceremony was performed at New York’s City Hall and the next day, after a brief honeymoon overnight at the elegant St George Hotel in Brooklyn Heights, Mr. O’Han shipped out. He eventually served with the 492nd Engineers in New Zealand and other islands in the South Pacific before returning home, after sustaining a serious injury, in 1945. After recuperating in upstate New York, he returned home and in April of 1946 the O’Hans began their family with the birth of their first child, Nicholas. Seven children would follow.
In 1968 the family moved to Rhinebeck New York, where the O’Hans purchased an 1847 Victorian home situated on a rolling site bordering Crystal Lake. Six of her eight children were educated in the Rhinebeck school system and graduated from the local High School. Mrs. O’Han was known to every Rhinebeck High School Student, serving with distinction as Secretary to the Superintendent of Schools and Clerk to the Board of Education for fifteen years. With her husband, she was regularly seen at Rhinebeck High School sporting and cultural events watching her children play soccer and basketball and perform in school productions. A generation of Rhinebeck youth fondly remembers the O’Han residence as a second home and John and Barbara O’Han as second parents when they were growing up. In later years Mr. and Mrs. O’Han were equally devoted and involved in the lives of their fifteen grandchildren, often attending concerts, dramatic performances and numerous athletic events, an activity Mrs. O’Han pursued with great energy, enthusiasm and joy until the onset of her recent illness.
Barbara O’Han was a person of profound faith and was a devoted member of the Good Shepherd Church. She was a legendary cook, a passionate gardener and an avid reader. But, first and foremost she was selflessly devoted to her loving and growing family, which at the time of her death included, in addition to her eight children, fifteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Her children and their spouses are Nicholas O’Han and his wife Elaine Winter of New York City; Barbara Brazina and her husband Joseph Brazina of Vero Beach Florida; Janice Gallarano and her husband Michael Gallarano of Sebastian, FL.; John O’Han, Jr., of Rhinebeck; Joseph O’Han and his wife Karen O’Han of Red Hook, New York; Alice Lloyd and her husband Cary Lloyd of Morristown, New Jersey; Carol Chestney and her husband Christopher Chestney of Rhinebeck; and Robert O’Han and his wife Kim O’Han of Raleigh, North Carolina. In addition, she is survived by her two brothers, Nicholas Accetta of Zephyrhills, Florida and Elmo Accetta, and his wife Helen of Selden, New York; a sister-in-law Eula Accetta of Stony Point, NY, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Joseph Accetta of Stony Point, New York and a sister-in-law Florence Accetta of Zephyrhills, Florida.
