Alicia Seeger

Alicia Seeger, 76, a Port Washington resident for 42 years, died suddenly from a heart attack on Oct. 26, 1998. She was the beloved wife of Lou Seeger for 56 years, the mother of Carol, Joshua and Julie and the grandmother of Adam and Jeanine Seeger, Mark and Conrad Risher and Samuel Sano. Alicia was the administrator of Sh'ma Magazine for 22 years and for the last six, the administrator of The National Association for Poetry Therapy (NAPT).

While holding down a full time job, Alicia felt the need to do more for the community and became a hospice volunteer, visiting patients, transporting them to medical appointments and relieving bedside caregivers. When the program ended, she organized a Mitzvah Committee at Community Synagogue, staffing it with volunteers who visited, ran errands and cooked for the sick and homebound.

Alicia was a brilliant letter writer with pen friends and email friends everywhere. She was a weaver, a quilter and an innovative craftswoman of many talents. Many know her for these arts, especially the carved eagle over the fireplace, but she was also a marvelous cook who could whip up a meal in minutes out of nothing. She was altogether a remarkable wife, mother and grandmother, who was loved by all who knew her.
