Rest in Peace, Nancy Cataldi

Dear Friends,

We are very distressed to report that the Society's President, Nancy Cataldi, died unexpectedly yesterday at her home in Richmond Hill. Our information is that she will be waked out of Kearns Funeral Home, 85-16 115th Street in Richmond Hill, but final arrangements have not yet been made. We will let you know as soon as we learn what those arrangements are. Otherwise, you may call Kearns Funeral Home at 718-441-3300 on Friday for more information.

Nancy's death leaves a terrible void in our community, our organization, and our personal lives, and we cannot imagine how that void will ever be filled.

The Greater Astoria Historical Society extends its sympathy to the family and friends of Nancy Cataldi. She was an advocate for her neighborhood, a community leader and a wonderful human being. Nancy was never afraid to stand up for what she believed in and make her voice heard. What a loss for Richmond Hill and all of New York City.

What a noble, gentle, caring lady.

Her community loved her

I AM TRULY IMPRESSED... I met Nancy because MY name is Nancy Cataldi and she looked for me circa 2001.... I could not come to meet her more, but the little I knew from her showed to be an amazing woman. My respect to the family, to Albert, her father... Deeply impressed for this piece of news. Rest in peace, Nancy
