Agnes DiChiara, long-term former resident of Garden City, passed away from complications after heart surgery this past Saturday.
While living in Garden City she was a very active community member, serving on the boards of Welcome Wagon, the Children’s Medical Fund of New York, as well as their Garden City chapter, and as the first two-term president of the Garden City Chamber of Commerce. She was a truly exceptional person and motivating force in the Garden City community.
After the passing of her husband of more than 50 years, Tony, she worked many years for Roslyn Savings Bank on 7th Street in Garden City, and only retired last year at the age of 80.
She is survived by three children, Michele DiChiara of Mineola, Jodi Richard of Breezy Point, and Ernest DiChiara of Ronkonkoma, along with their spouses, and one grandson, Frankie. Agnes also leaves behind three siblings, Charlotte Delloiacono of Garden City, Loretta Lapajenko of Watertown, Wis., and Russell Hotzler, also of Garden City, as well as several beloved nieces and nephews.
Agnes was loved by all who knew her, and she will be greatly missed.
