Obituary: Jane Veroxie-Nyquist

Jane Veroxie-Nyquist of Locust Valley, New York, formerly of Glen Cove, passed away on Saturday, April 5.  She was the beloved wife of the late Peter, who passed away on March 9, 2013.  Loving Aunt of Jaclyn, Steven, Mary Frances and the late Kathryn.  Niece of Doris and John Burns and Joan Mynarkiewicz.  Dear sister of the late William and Joseph.  Cherished daughter of the late Joseph and Josephine. 

 

Jane was a devoted and integral part of Anton Community Newspapers in Mineola from 1976 to 1998.  She served as our technical support advisor, providing her expertise in writing computer programs to ensure smooth operation, and was promoted to Second Vice President in 1982, a position she held until her departure from the company in 1998.  In addition, several of her family members were employed at Anton at various times.  Jane always considered her co-workers as “family”.  Even after leaving her employment with Anton, Jane kept in touch with many of the employees, often getting together for dinner or meeting in the city to enjoy a Broadway play.  Her husband, Peter, was also an employee of Anton for many years and at the time of his death held the position of General Manager.

 

Jane’s hobbies and interests were many and varied.  They encompassed her love of gardening, needlepoint, crocheting, jigsaw puzzles, cooking, traveling and attending concerts and shows at Tilles Center.  She enjoyed touring the local arboretums and designer showcases and was fond of haunting the local antique shops and those she came upon during trips around the country with her husband.  She and her parents spent many vacations in Las Vegas, and Jane and Peter loved traveling throughout New England, enjoying several excursions to Bar Harbor, Maine.  They were especially fond of Vermont, which they visited often and where they were married.  Another of Jane’s passions was her love of classical music, being a season ticket holder to the Long Island Philharmonic for close to 30 years.

 

She attended school in Glen Cove and was a  graduate of SUNY Oneonta.  Those who knew Jane would describe her as a unique individual who lived life on her own terms.  She was a caring, yet quiet individual with a tremendous sense of loyalty to friends and family.  She had a special way of holding a cigarette and loved driving her “baby” Lincoln.

 

Jane and her first husband, James Sterling Postley, who died in 1990,  lived at Mildew Manor in Locust Valley.  After Jane and Peter were married in 1999, they resided at the Manor until their respective deaths.

 

Arrangements by Whitting Funeral Home, 300 Glen Cove Ave., Glen Head, NY where a gathering of friends and a memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 4 from 5 to 7 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, Jane requested donations be made in her memory to the Long Island Philharmonic, 1 Huntington Quadrangle, Suite 2C21, Melville, NY 11747.


News

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from local school districts showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, 39 students in the Herricks School District opted out of the English exam, while 74 did not take the math test. For the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District, 17 students did not take the English test while 18 refused to take the math test.

At the Oct. 17 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Bierwirth discussed the recent investigation of students who have been illegally attending school in the Herricks School District, despite living in outer areas. Bierwirth said that 14 prospective cases were investigated and eight students were forced to leave the district.

 

Board of Education President James Gounaris said weeding out students who are attending school in Herricks under false pretenses is boiled down to one fact: it takes away valuable resources from the children of tax-paying members of the community.


Sports

The Sewanhaka Indians varsity football team hosted Elmont Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 18 in its final home game of the regular season. 

 

It certainly did not go as the Indians had hoped, falling 18-8, in a mistake filled game. Head coach George Kasimatis said the Indians had their chances, but kept digging themselves into a hole with mental mistakes on both sides of the ball. 

 

Playing from behind, senior running back Brenton Mighty was able to break free for a long touchdown run, to put the Indians on the board. 

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said.
