Letter: Regarding Obituary

In the Feb. 3, 2011 issue of the Record Pilot you published the obituary of Margery Finley. What was missing from the obituary was the fact that Margery was the widow of Robert Marshall Finley, whose name is on the Glen Cove Middle School.

Prior to his death in 1986 Robert Finley had served as superintendent of schools in Glen Cove for almost 20 years. He loved children, he loved teaching and he loved education. Even while he was superintendent of schools, he taught Sunday school at the United Methodist Church of Sea Cliff; we were honored to have him in our midst. The fact that the Middle School was dedicated to him is an indication of how much he was admired.

He was a much-loved man who gave his professional life to serving others. He should not be forgotten.
