It is with a great sense of sadness that we learned of the passing of our beloved Treasurer and dear friend Evelyn Ludwig on November 3, at the age of 81.
Besides being our Treasurer for the past 6 years, Evelyn is best remembered for her willingness to help out wherever she could, whether it was making the arrangements for our annual Christmas party, greeting people who stopped at our booth at the annual Hofstra Irish Festival, or volunteering for other events in which the Forum participated. At our monthly meetings, Evelyn was always one of the first to arrive at the library to help set up the Forum displays, assist the Hospitality group in setting up the refreshment table, greeting participants and, when needed, helping sign in members, and of course selling the 50/50 chances.
Recognizing all of the contributions she made over the years to the success of the Forum, last year the Board of Directors honored her with the Forum’s 2019 Certificate of Appreciation and named her “Volunteer Extraordinaire,” a designation she so justly deserved.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Evelyn’s loving husband, Joseph; her children and grandchildren; and her sister, Forum member Margaret Gonzalez, during this time of great sadness.
Suaimhneas siorai Da hAnam Uasal…Eternal rest to her gentle soul.
During these very trying times we at Donohue Cecere Funeral Home want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to provide a safe environment for you and your loved ones. Our location is cleaned and sanitized daily and we continue to follow best practices for social distancing and safety.
In accordance with Executive Order 202.17 (which requires any individual over age two, and able to medically tolerate a face-covering, be required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or cloth face-covering when in a public place) we are required to follow this mandate or risk being shut down; therefore, all individuals entering our funeral home will be asked to wear a face mask or cloth face covering.
As of the latest update we are able to offer limited visitation periods in the funeral home for family and friends up to 25 people per session. Please be mindful when visiting during these sessions to limit the amount of time spent at the funeral home. This will give the opportunity for other family and friends to visit.
In lieu of flowers donations in Evelyn’s memory would be appreciated to: Wounded Warrior Project
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Evelyn Ludwig, please visit our floral store.
