Barbara Goldstein, child care advocate, community leader, philanthropist, died at the age of 62 in Manhasset on Dec. 27, 2010. While cancer claimed her life, it could not diminish her spirit nor the legacy she leaves with her family, her many friends and the community of Port Washington, which she always considered her home, despite a recent move to Manhasset.
Barbara Goldstein leaves her mark on Port Washington in many ways. As a child care advocate, in 1978, Barbara joined the board of directors of the Children’s Center and was elected its president the following year. Among other things, she fought, albeit lost, the emotional battle to maintain the center’s first home at the Merriman School. Committed to a seamless transition to a new, welcoming site, she oversaw the creation of the center’s new, but temporary, home in the old Flower Hill School building.
In 1990, Barbara was the first recipient of the Barbara Kramer Memorial Award honoring her generous and skillful leadership of the Port Washington Children’s Center. In 1995, Newsday selected her for their “Citizen’s Action Award for Community Pride, Raising Awareness, Establishing Identity and Empowering Community Residents.” Recently, her alma mater, Jericho High School, honored her in its Hall of Fame for her community service. And this past year, in June, 2010, Barbara was named “Child Care Advocate of the Year” at Child Care Council of Nassau’s Stand for Children.
