Obituary: Carol Lee Bailey

 

Carol Lee Bailey, a longtime resident of Sea Cliff who relocated to Waltham, MA a few years ago died in her sleep on Friday, Nov. 8 from complications from COPD.  Carol was an active member of Roslyn Presbyterian Church in Roslyn and Trinity Church in Waltham, MA.  She was an avid Mets fan although since her move to Boston, the Red Sox also enjoyed her allegiance.   Carol moved to Massachusetts in 2010 to be near her daughter Kate, and grandchildren Maeve and Reese Burnham.  Carol is survived by her sisters Leslie Eve McHale, Beverly Bailey Shields and daughters Leslie Marie O’Shea, Jean Patricia O’Shea and Kathryn Eileen Burnham.  In addition to Maeve and Reese Burnham, she is survived by grandchildren Jakob Parker, Cierra Borgers and Gabrielle Bailey.  Carol died at peace and with faith in Christ’s redemptive love.  

News

Howard Kroplick was just settling in to his new position as North Hempstead’s town historian in April of 2012 when a phone call from a resident who found an old headstone led him into a comprehensive study of all 28 cemeteries within

the town’s boundaries.

 

Kroplick, an East Hills resident for 29 years, serves in the unpaid role as an advisor to the North Hempstead board, out of his longtime love of history. His exhaustive study of the area’s cemeteries has helped him complete a history of

North Hempstead that will be published in January, which will coincide with the 400-year anniversary of the discovery of Long Island, by Dutch explorer Adriaen Block. It was Block, according to Kroplick, who first identified Long Island as an actual island, not a peninsula as many believed back then. The 128-page book from Arcadia Publishing is the first ever written about North Hempstead.

For the time being, much of the Roslyn area is without representation on the Town of North Hempstead council. Recently, Thomas K. Dwyer, who has represented Roslyn on that body since 2002, announced that he would step down from the board while he is in negotiations with a Manhattan-based consulting firm.

 

Dwyer, who is the chief operating officer of Syosset-based American Land Services, would not identify the firm he is talking to, but he said that the new job would represent a conflict of interest with his work on the town board.


Sports

Albertson resident and Kellenberg sophomore Gabby Schreib qualified for the Millrose Games in New York City. Schreib qualified as a member of the Sprint Medley Relay along with Danielle Correia, Bridget McNierney, and Jazmine Fray. 

The Kellenberg relay’s close second place finish in January’s Millrose Trials has moved them closer to defending the title they won in the same relay at last year’s Millrose Games. Schreib and her teammates time is currently second in the United States for girls track and field performances.
