Obituary: Jane Veroxie-Nyquist

Jane Veroxie-Nyquist of Locust Valley, formerly of Glen Cove, passed away on Saturday, April 5, 2014. 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. 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 from 1976 to 1998. She served as their technical support advisor, providing her expertise in writing computer programs to ensure its 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 (www.whitting.com) where a gathering of friends and a memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014 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.

At the Tuesday, Nov. 18, Oyster Bay-East Norwich board of education meeting, Superintendent Dr. Laura Seinfeld said that the OBEN schools are partnering with local organizations to form a Community Advisory Board to deal with issues affecting the youth of Oyster Bay-East Norwich.

Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Dr. Lisa Mulhall spoke about some new courses that will be offered at the high school, including an exercise science course that will carry physical education credits from Adelphi University and a college level engineering course. These courses will be offered in conjunction with the State University of Stony Brook.

This holiday season, Oyster Bay will once again be home to unique, homemade, scrumptious confections from The Chocolate Lady, in the form of a mobile chocolate boutique set up at Buckingham Variety Store on Audrey Avenue. She arrived on Sunday and plans on staying throughout the holidays, and possibly longer.

“I have been developing this concept for the last year and a half and am excited to be coming home to Oyster Bay for this year’s holiday launch,” says Lee Perrotta, aka The Chocolate Lady, who had her shop across the street from Buckingham’s for about five years before she was forced to shut her doors on Christmas Eve in 2012 due to excessive water damage at the rental space.


Sports

Long Island Lutheran High School senior Samantha Horton of Oyster Bay signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Siena College and compete on the Girls Division I Lacrosse Team in the goaltender position next year. Samantha will be receiving a full athletic scholarship. Horton is pictured with her family.

On the weekend of Nov. 8, the Oyster Bay High School Boys and Girls Cross Country teams traveled to the State University of New York at Canton just a few miles from the Canadian border to compete in the New York State Cross Country Championships.

Alex Tosi became the first Bayman since Joe Jazwinski and Justin Nakrin (2008) to become All-State, placing 16th with a time of 16:53. Most runners ran about 20 seconds slower than their Bethpage times because of the muddy conditions on the course. Tosi’s time was basically equivalent to his best Bethpage time, as he powered through the toughest parts of the race. He led the Baymen to a seventh place finish in the Class C race, an improvement from their 11th place finish last year, which ties the highest place at the New York State Championships of a Baymen team since 2009.
