Obituary, Signa Janene Logiudice

Signa Janene Logiudice, 53, a lifelong resident of Dover Plains, New York, entered into eternal freedom after a brief, but hard-fought battle with cancer on October 28, 2023, at Putnam Ridge.

Signa was born in Poughkeepsie, NY, on May 4, 1970 to the late Richard and Helen Holmes. She had a “Gypsy Soul”, as the words tattooed on her arm would tell you- she yearned for travel and dreamt of one day owning a van to live life on the road- to escape to the mountains or the seas. She was an exceptional artist throughout her life with an affinity for painting on canvas, drawing in sketchbooks, sculpting with clay, singing melodies with her angelic vocals, and making others laugh until their bodies ached and tears fell. She had a passion for helping others, working in direct-care and counseling at Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center, in-home care for local senior residents, and volunteering as an EMT with the Dover Rescue Squad, at J.H. Ketcham Hose Company, but her lifelong commitment was being matriarch to her family.

She is survived by her children Joseph Logiudice, his wife Krystin, and her granddaughter Arya, of Amenia; Carlie Logiudice, Salvatore Logiudice and his girlfriend Kyla Turner, all of Dover; and Rebecca Logiudice and her grandson James Pockett, of Hyde Park. She also leaves behind her partner Eddie Williams, her grandsons Aidan Logiudice and Julious Swartz and their mother Fallon Swartz, her sister Kimberly Holmes, her brothers Jeffery Sheridan of New York State and John Sheridan of Washington State, many nieces and nephews, including Shauna Sitter and her children Jaxon and Journey Finley, Jonah Sheridan, Jason, Jeramey, Jaryd, and John Sheridan. As well as, long-time close friends, Kimberly Maceyak-Jenkins and Christina Sblano; and her fur babies Rollow, Archie, and Kady.

Along with her parents, Signa was also predeceased by both of her husbands, Michael Tucker and Salvatore Logiudice, as well as her daughter Signa Victoria Logiudice, her grandson Ashton Michael Logiudice, and her long-time best friend Robert Watson.

There are no services planned at this time, a celebration of life will be announced at a future date.

Donations may be made in Signa’s name to the Dutchess County SPCA, 636 Violet Avenue, Hyde Park, NY 12538, or to a dachshund rescue of your choice.
