A celebration of life of Maureen Gedman, 67, of Great Neck, who after a brief illness on Jan. 15, will be held Sunday, May 17, 2 p.m. at Our Lady of Grace Spiritual Center, 29 Shelter Rock Rd. in Manhasset.
A longtime resident of Great Neck, Maureen was predeceased by her parents, Alexander and Mildred Gedman, her Aunt Sophie Zebart and her brother Bruce. She is survived by her niece, Melinda Matkowsky and many loving cousins.
She was most recently employed by the Woman’s Club of Great Neck.
Known for her ability to make everyone feel comfortable in her presence, she was always ready to assist those in need and did so generously. Her infectious laugh will be remembered by those who knew and loved her. Maureen was an avid fisherwoman and was most at home on the water.
In keeping with her generous spirit, Maureen donated her body to the Hofstra School of Medicine for medical research.
Donations in Maureen’s name can be made to the North Shore Animal League, 16 Lewyt St., Port Washington, NY 11050.
