MOBIT: Hanna, Annabel Saiz [MCspouse RIP] on 2017-05May-17



Annabel Saiz Hanna
1947 – 2017

HANNA, ANNABEL SAIZ of Barrington, passed away with her family by her side on May 17, 2017, at the age of 69.

Annabel was beloved by all for her unforgettable warmth, boundless selflessness, and loving spirit. She cast a radiant light of pure love, she opened her heart to all, and she could make a stranger feel like family in a single greeting. Annabel’s legacy is her love and devotion to family, her depthless generosity, and her indomitable optimism and positivity.

Annabel was born November 24, 1947 in New York City, New York, to parents Alfonso and Clissi Saiz and brother Alfonso Saiz Jr. Her early childhood was blissfully spent between Manhattan and Cuba, from where her parents had emigrated. She attended Elizabeth Seton College in Yonkers, New York, where a blind date with a Manhattan College student would forever change her life.

From the moment Annabel and Mark met, it was love at first sight. He was a dark haired Irish boy from rural upstate New York, she was a vibrant blonde city girl, and they couldn’t have been more perfect for each other. Their love story was the likes of which were usually only seen in movies. Annabel & Mark’s devotion to each other for over 50 years is an inspiration to all. The beautiful family they would create is an everlasting reflection of their unique and unwavering love.

They married on June 1, 1968 in Riverdale, New York, and honeymooned road tripping across Europe. In 1970, they welcomed their first child Erik. Their second child, Todd, came in 1974, followed by daughter Erin in 1980, and son Ryan in 1983. In 1985, the family moved from Long Island, New York, to their waterfront dream house in Barrington, Rhode Island, which to this day remains the heart of holidays and family gatherings.

Throughout her life, Annabel was active in the community, supported countless charities, and ran a successful luxury linens business. But little would make her happier than seeing her beloved children find their soul mates and begin their own love stories. The addition of Erik’s wife Roxanne, Todd’s wife Karla, Erin’s husband Khushal, and Ryan’s wife Jessica brought her immeasurable joy, rivaled only by the welcoming of her cherished grandchildren Owen, Gabby, Gavin, Nico, Karoline, and Inez.

Annabel loved life deeply and fully, she wore her beautiful smile everywhere she went, and her unending positivity was legendary. She often and famously proclaimed everything she encountered as “the best ever.” And while everything wasn’t truly worthy of that designation, undoubtedly Annabel herself was. She was the best ever – the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and grammy ever.

Calling hours will be Tuesday, May 23rd, 4-8pm, at Perry- McStay Funeral Home, 2555 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, May 24th, 10am, at St. Luke’s Parish, 108 Washington Road, Barrington, Rhode Island. Burial will follow at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 550 Wampanoag Trail, East Providence, Rhode Island.

Flowers are welcome at the funeral home or church. Alternatively donations can be made in Annabel’s honor to Special Olympics Rhode Island (www.specialolympicsri.org) or the Women’s Ordination Conference (www.womensordination.org).

MOBIT: White, Margaret Sullivan [MCspouse RIP] on 2016-Sep-08




Margaret Sullivan White, 88
Kindergarten teacher and mother of eight

Margaret Sullivan White passed away on Sept. 9, 2016, in Toms River, N.J., after a brief illness. She spent her final days surrounded by her loving family. She was 88 years old.

Margaret grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where she was the oldest daughter of the late Thomas and Margaret (Golden) Sullivan, and the loving sister to eight brothers and two sisters. The mothering skills she acquired as the oldest daughter in a large Irish Catholic family served her well in later years when she had eight of her own children with her husband, John V. White; he predeceased her in 2005.

Margaret, lovingly nick-named Dolly by her family, attended St. Ephrem’s grade school, and Saint Brendan’s high school in Bay Ridge, and graduated from Notre Dame College on Staten Island in 1950. She met her beloved husband, John, through her brother, Gerry Sullivan, when they attended Manhattan College together.

After marrying on Nov. 23, 1950, they started the first half of their family on 74th street in Bay Ridge, where they had Mary, Tom, Marge, Bernadette, and John Joseph. They moved to Tenth Street in New Dorp on Staten Island in 1960, where the family grew to eight children with the addition of Richard, Frances, and Vincent.

The Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish was the center of their educational and faith universe, where at one point she had six of her eight children attending the elementary school at one time.

Her life became even busier when she became the kindergarten teacher at St. Clare’s elementary school in Great Kills in 1969, where she taught 90 children daily between the day and afternoon sessions.

At the end of the school day, she would come home to her own bustling household, where she tried to keep law and order, sometimes successfully.

In 1987, Margaret and John retired and moved to Toms River, N.J., and lived part of the year in Jupiter, Fla. They had a wonderful marriage.

Margaret’s Catholic faith was a constant in her life and sustained her throughout her 88 years. Challenged by polio as a young child, she spent two years in the hospital and received what was then considered radical surgery at the time on her spine which allowed her to live a normal life. She was a petite woman with larger than life courage culled from her faith, which sustained her through the untimely losses of her sons, John Joseph, in 1996, and Tom, in 2002, and her husband, John, in 2005.

To everyone who knew her, she radiated a warmth and gentleness that made her so beloved and easy to be with. She was adored by her children, grandchildren, daughters and sons-in-law, and siblings. All who visited with her always came away with some of her cheerful and faithful energy. Even when she met challenging health crises in her final years, she was ever reliant on her faith. Her health aide, Aida Delola, was a godsend who provided so much love and support along with her great neighbors, Linda and Sam LaBrutto.

The essence of her being was exemplified in a school project interview conducted by her grandson, Dylan Jones, who asked her about the best ways to help others, and she replied, “the greatest gift to help others is the gift of kindness.” This she gave in great quantity.Margaret is survived by her loving children, Mary Kudless, Margaret Yale, Bernadette White, Richard White, Frances Dailey, and Vincent White, and her beloved sons and daughters-in- law, John Kudless, David Yale, Stephen Jones, Dina and Ernie Karayel, Caroline Chauvin, Richard Dailey, and Donna White.

She is also survived by her loving siblings, John Sullivan, Peter Sullivan, Ralph Sullivan, Betty Haggerty, and Frances Sullivan, and her beloved sisters and brothers-in-law, Barbara Sullivan, Kathy Sullivan, John Brennan, and Patricia Sullivan.

She also leaves her many grandchildren who loved her deeply, Matthew White, Jessica White, Deanna White, Margot Yale, Dylan Jones, Olivia Jones, Leon and Johnny Kartsanis, Emily White, Kathleen Dailey, Erin Dailey, Richard Dailey, Colleen Dailey, Joseph Dailey, Christopher White and Andrew White, and three great-grandchildren, Thomas, Harleigh, and James, and many nieces and nephews.She was predeceased by her brothers, Thomas Sullivan, Gerry Sullivan, Billy Sullivan, Richard Sullivan, and Bishop Joseph Sullivan.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bishop Joseph Sullivan Center for Health in Haiti, c/o The Catholic Medical Mission Board, 100 Wall Street, 9th Floor, New York, N.Y. 10005.

Calling hours are Monday, Sept. 12, between 7 and 9 p.m., and Tuesday, Sept. 13, between 2 and 4 and 7 and 9 p.m. at the Casey McCallaum Rice Funeral Home, 30 Nelson Ave., S.I. with the Mass of Resurrection to be held on Wednesday at St. Clare’s R.C. Church at 11 a.m. followed by burial at The Resurrection Cemetery, Staten Island.

MOBIT: Hegarty, Mary Ellen [MCspouse RIP] on 2015-Apr-05 reported 2015-May-01



Mary Ellen Hegarty
By Star staff | April 30, 2015 – 2:24pm

Mary Ellen Hegarty, who split her time between Glen Head and Montauk, died on Easter morning at home in Glen Head. She was 75 and had had cancer for over eight years.

She had lost sensation in her hands and feet a year and a half ago and began using a wheelchair or needing help to walk, but her spirits never dampened, her family said. At Christmas, they said, nothing, not even cancer, could keep her from shopping, and she managed to purchase a plethora of gifts for her 10 grandchildren.

Mrs. Hegarty and her husband, Michael J. Hegarty, bought a Leisurama home in Montauk in the early 1970s after falling love with Montauk while visiting friends. Their home in Montauk was filled with family, friends, and parties, from Christmas in July to Halloween in August, complete with trick-or-treating from bedroom to bedroom, her family said. The family had also re-enacted Hurricane Bob by shutting off the power and cooking the same meal they had eaten back in 1991.

Their grandchildren, all of whom survive, were the center of many of the couple’s activities, and a sign at their North Farragut Road house in Montauk read, “Careful, Grandparents at Play.” When Mrs. Hegarty lost her hair as a result of chemotherapy, the grandchildren proved their affection for her by hosting a Crazy Hat Party.

Born Mary Ellen Duggan on Dec. 6, 1939, to Helen and James Duggan, Mrs. Hegarty was raised in the Bronx. She graduated from Blessed Sacrament Academy.

Her husband was a student at Manhattan College when they met, her daughter, Ellen McDonald of East Hampton, said. Mr. Hegarty and his fraternity brothers used to joke by saying they were going to a dance with Mary Duggan as a code for going stag. At one particular dance, Mr. Hegarty met Mary Duggan, introduced her to his friends, and the rest is history. They were married on Jan. 26, 1963.

Mrs. Hegarty is survived by her husband of 52 years and her children, Michael Hegarty of Westbury, Brian Hegarty of Golden’s Bridge in Westchester, N.Y., and Ms. McDonald.

A wake was held earlier this month at the Whitting Funeral Home in Glen Head, followed by a funeral Mass at St. Hyacinth Catholic Church in Glen Head. She was buried at the Locust Valley Cemetery.

Memorial donations have been suggested to Recanati/Miller Kidney Transplantation Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital, One Gustave L. Levy Place, Box 1049, New York 10029, or online.


Hegarty, Mary Ellen of Glen Head, NY on April 5, 2015. Beloved wife of Michael J. Loving mother of Michael (Liz), Brian (Madeleine) and Ellen McDonald (Joseph). Cherished grandmother of Caitlin, Danielle, Nicole, Erin, Joey, Michael, Matthew, Mary, Cameron and Megan. Dear sister of Bill Duggan (Ellen). Visiting Wed. 2-4 & 7-9 pm at Whitting Funeral Home 300 Glen Cove Ave., Glen Head, NY 11545 http://www.whitting.com Funeral Mass 9:30 am Thur. at. St. Hyacinth R. C. Church, Glen Head, NY.
