Please adhere to all COVID-19 precautions and guidelines when visiting the family and funeral home. Masks are NOT required but encouraged when visiting the funeral home. I heard the call, “Come follow”' That was all Earth’s joy grew dim, my soul went after Him, I rose and followed…That was all Who would not follow, if you heard His Call? “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith” II Timothy 4:7 The Lord called our beloved Gloria Brown-Scott home on Saturday, February 17, 2024, after her second battle with a stroke. Gloria Brown was born to William Brown and Corabelle Doctor-Brown in New York, NY on June 10, 1974. Gloria attended elementary school at Manhattan Country School and Graduated high school from Mother Cabrini High School in 1992. She started her career at Lincoln Center doing payroll for many years. Gloria later changed career paths and became a Corrections Officer for the NYC Dept. of Corrections for 12 years. Gloria was loved and respected by many. She was a devoted daughter and loving sister. Gloria was loyal to her family as a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children. They knew that they could always depend on her for anything. Cora (Mommy) made sure all of her children knew that God’s Word is the foundation for their lives. She truly believed in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Gloria’s strength came from the Lord and she never stopped believing, trusting, and praising God! Gloria leaves to cherish her memories: mother, Corabelle Doctor-Brown; father, William Brown; two sisters, Joy & R. Denise; husband, Albert Scott Jr.; three children, Kamhali, Xavier, and Jaequre; step-daughters, Vernice, Varonica, and Shanai; mother-In-law, Florence; sister-In-law, Jennifer (Carl); brother-In-law, Arnold (Cresentia); four aunts, Esther, Alberta, Betty and Dorothy; three uncles, Ernest, Perry, and Frankie; sister-in-law, Renee; nieces and nephews, Shantelle, Ashley, Jamil, MaKenna, Ezekiel, and Khamiya; and a host of cousins, god brothers/sisters, family, and friends.

New York City, NY

Josephine Nova, lovingly known as JoAnn, 77, of the Upper West Side passed away on February 15, 2024 in New York City at Mt Sinai Hospital. JoAnn was born in Brooklyn to Fiore and Jennie Perrone Nova on October 12, 1946. A graduate of New Utrecht High School she went on to have a successful years-long career in Human Resources on Wall Street beginning with Lehman Brothers and ending with Drexel Burnham. Several stints would follow until she found a second career in sales as a wine rep first followed by a cheery role in spirits. JoAnn so enjoyed her education in these industries and was proud of the strides she'd made as a mature woman breaking into a new field. Her role brought her to Scotland where she perfected her palate for scotch. In every capacity she gained lifelong friends thanks to her outgoing nature and bountiful heart. JoAnn was the consummate cosmopolitan woman having delighted in European travel, fine foods, theater and live music. She had a keen eye for stylish clothing and jewelry. Her generosity knew no bounds as she was first to quietly help someone in need. This same unselfishness proved to be limitless as she was recognized as an Organ Donor Hero by LiveOnNY. JoAnn is preceded in death by her parents and twin brother, Michael, who passed in February 2018. She is survived by older brother and sister, Lou Nova and RoseMarie (Mike) Savino, five nieces with whom she had deep and meaningful relationships, their husbands, and nine grand nieces and nephews, all of whom she gleefully spent time with going to Broadway, over meals or just catching up on the phone. JoAnn's connections to all of these kids was such that they would call and make plans with her to do anything she would recommend. Entirely flattered she would remark, "how lucky am I that my nieces and nephews want to spend time with an old woman!" Memorials may be given to St Jude Research Hospital and Planned Parenthood. The family owes a debt of gratitude to her favorite doctor, Stanley Schneller, M.D.; Lori Tice, who gave her an unimaginable gift of hope; Rogosin West Side Dialysis and all of the LiveOnNY team who were sensitive to the needs of JoAnn's family, especially the Family Services department, in her final days of earthly life. A memorial is being planned for early summer 2024.

Margaret is survived by her nine loving and devoted children: Continue Reading x Margaret Mongiori August 3, 1926 - February 20, 2024 Margaret Mongiori, age 97, passed away on February 20, 2024. She is predeceased by her parents Charles Joseph McDermott and Mary Kathleen McDermott, brother Billy, sisters Therese and Ann, husband Peter Mongiori, children Robert Roche and Thomas Mongiori, and grandchildren Mickey Roche and Danny Mongiori. Margaret is survived by her nine loving and devoted children: Frances, Margie, Kathy, Charlie, Jimmy, Mike, Joe, Charleen, and Helen. Also mourning her are her sons and daughters-in-law, her 21 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren who all loved and cherished her until her very last breath. Margaret was born August 3, 1926 in Saratoga Springs, New York. She spent summers on a farm there when she was young, but she was a city girl at heart. Raised on the upper east side of Manhattan, Margaret ventured to California for a very short while, but returned to New York City where she would remain for the rest of her long and beautiful life. Margaret loved working in the theater district and listening to Elvis when she was a young lady. She had a passion and love for all animals, but she especially loved horses. She enjoyed spending time at the racetrack and watching the races on tv— even at 97, she was still picking winners. Through the many phases of her life— apartments and houses lived in, jobs had, friends made— the real story of Margaret’s life is a beautiful and enduring love story, one of a mother and her children. Margaret raised eleven wonderful children and lived her life defined by an all consuming and unconditional love for her family. All her life, this love extended even beyond her own children, as she welcomed countless friends into her family and treated them all as one of her own. Margaret will be missed dearly by her family. She has left behind an enduring legacy of selflessness and love that her children and grandchildren will pass down for generations. A wonderful life was lived, and a family indebted to her many sacrifices has been left with countless memories of Margaret’s beautiful life.
