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.

When it comes to fitness, getting off the couch is half the battle.

 

Plenty of people start each day with the best of intentions, but plans to eat healthy and get to the gym often fall by the wayside with even the most shoddy of excuses. But a New

Hyde Park native is bringing physical fitness to the front door with a mobile, personal traning regimen focusing on individualized one-on-one fitness, group sessions and corporate fitness. 

The Herricks School District recently concluded a series of contract negotiations with the administrators and teachers of the district. Though talks were reportedly difficult, both sides were able to come to an agreement.

 

However, at the Nov. 20 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, Board President James Gounaris revealed that another bout of negotiations taking place with teaching assistants, which have taken an unfortunate turn for the worse.

The students of Herricks High School were treated to a “Blast from the Past” as the Herricks High School Class of 1964 during this year’s Homecoming celebration.  Approximately 60 members of the class of 1964 arrived at the high school on homecoming day for a tour of their alma mater.  Most of these alumni had not been back to the high school since graduating 50 years ago.

 

All were impressed with the changes that have taken place and with the friendly demeanor of our high school students. One alumnus became teary eyed when he ventured out into the courtyard.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
