Obituary: Lillian Stecher

Stecher, Lillian (Ehrlich), 86, passed away in her sleep on March 2, after a long fight with cancer. Proud to be a New Yorker, she was the dedicated wife of the late Harry Stecher and amazing mother of son Allen Stecher and wife Arlene and daughter Debra (Stecher) McKosky and husband Robert. “Grandma Daisy”, as she was known by many, a reference to her alter ego of Daisy the Clown, was proud of learning how to juggle as she frequently uplifted the spirits of hospitalized children. Lillian was the cherished Bubbe to granddaughter Meriah Anne McKosky and grandson Jacob Harrison McKosky and wife Virginia. Aunt Lillian loved her nephews Paul Zam and godson Robert Zam and partner Mary Grover.  Lillian was partner in crime with her late sister Jeanette. She loved playing a vital role for 38 years at Hofstra University where she became the editor of the bulletin. Very active in her community, Lillian served for many years with honor and dedication as president of her condo association. A voracious reader, talented gardener and formidable Scrabble opponent, Lillian had an incredibly contagious sense of humor with a one of a kind personality. Anyone who knew her observed her energy and her love of life. A celebration of Lillian’s life was held at New Montefiore Cemetery, West Babylon, on March 10 at 11:30 a.m.

Firehouse Subs announces the grand opening of its first Long Island location in Levittown on Oct. 17. The award-winning fast casual restaurant chain is famous for serving premium meats and cheeses steamed piping hot and piled high on a toasted sub roll, which is served “Fully Involved” with fresh produce and condiments. Founded by former firefighting brothers, the restaurant’s firehouse décor is based on the founding family’s decades of fire and police service, and the new location is decorated with firefighter memorabilia from the Levittown Fire Department.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution. 

 

The Levittown School District has been vigilant with the increase of cases in general. “We are continuing to implement the precautions provided by the health department and the CDC,” said Levittown School District Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel Darlene Rhatigan. “We are also reminding students and staff to be mindful of the importance of proper hygiene including frequent hand washing.”
