Obituary: Stella M. Reyes

Stella M. Reyes, M.D. passed away on Sept. 17, 2012 after a long courageous battle with ovarian cancer. She was surrounded by family and friends. Born in Cebu, Philippines, Dr. Reyes immigrated to New York in 1964 to start her medical career. She met her loving husband while doing her pediatrics training and moved to Long Island, where she practiced pediatrics in Oyster Bay for 35 years. She touched many lives during her successful career and was loved by many. An avid world traveler, she was an accomplished pianist, ballroom dancer, and gardener. She loved to play tennis, collect jewelry and especially loved spending time with her family and friends. She was deeply devoted to her Catholic faith.

Predeceased by her parents Mateo and Carolina Maramara. She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years Gregorio, her children Rick (Whitney), Michelle DiLapi (David), John (Jeana), and Gregory (Ji Hyun), her grandchildren Allison, Thomas, Ricky, Christian and David, brothers Ramon (Jane) and Emmanuel (Maria Victoria), sister Teresa (JoAchim) and nieces Angela, Lauren, Julia, Olivia and Caroline, and many loved in-laws, extended family and friends.

Reposing was at McLaughlin-Kramer Funeral Home and Funeral Mass was at St. Rocco’s Church Friday morning Sept. 21. Donations in her name can be made to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

News

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.

The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40-percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.

Oyster Bay High School Principal Dr. Dennis O’Hara addressed the board of education at Tuesday night’s meeting about offering a summer school program at the high school. It would be the first time the district had a summer school program in more than 12 years.

Dr. O’Hara explained that with the institution of the Common Core state standards, students are faced with a greater level of academic rigor and more challenging coursework. The program would offer remedial and enrichment classes for students both in and out of district.


Sports

In the history of Oyster Bay High School athletics, no one has ever won a Girls’ Tennis New York State Championship. Celeste Matute and Courtney Kowalsky became the first when they won the 2014 New York State Doubles Championship in Latham on Nov. 3. What makes this tremendous achievement even more remarkable is that Matute is a junior and Kowalsky is a sophomore.

The girls, who are usually singles players, teamed up to take on the very best players in Nassau County and New York State. They won all 10 matches in the section XIII and NYSPHSAA tournaments and left Latham as the 2014 New York State doubles champions.

The conditions were as fierce as the competition earlier this month at Oakcliff Sailing’s Halloween Invitational.

Ten teams from the U.S., Canada and Bermuda battled 30-knot-plus winds, heavy rain and biting cold to see who would take top honors at Oakcliff’s final match racing event of the 2014 season.
