Angela Mary (Furlong) Gonick, born on January 3, 1937, in Knutsford, England, passed away on February 20, 2024, in New York, in the presence of loving family members. In her later years of life, Angela suffered from dementia, the complications of which ultimately caused her death. Angela was born and grew up in wartime and post-war England, where she trained at Manchester Royal Hospital to become a registered nurse and midwife. Her adventurous spirit led her to New York City in the early 1960’s through a nurse exchange program, where she worked at the neonatal unit at Mount Sinai Hospital.While in New York, Angela met Paul Gonick, a doctor, on a blind date, and they married soon thereafter. Over the ensuing years, Angela and Paul lived in Canada and the Bronx before finding a home in suburban Philadelphia, having three children along the way. She also tragically lost two children afflicted with cystic fibrosis.While raising her children, Angela went back to school, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University. Returning to nursing, she found her calling as a compassionate psychiatric nurse. As the children left the nest and Angela and Paul retired, they split time between Big Sky, Montana, and Manhattan, enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, the thrill of skiing, and the culture and bustle of the City. Her later years were spent in Ardsley, New York.Angela's infectious joy for life and charm, along with her British accent, made her memorable and cherished in every community she encountered in her travels. She enthusiastically enjoyed passions old and new – music, bicycling, hiking, skiing, cooking, travel, birdwatching, and literature to name just a few. Her ability to find humor in everyday life, both good and bad, made her a wonderful partner, mother and nana, and will be sorely missed.Angela is survived by her loving husband, Paul, and their children’s families: Brian and wife Dawn and their children Liam and Katherine; Peter and wife Edie Adams and their children Elena and Evan; and Julia and husband Tim Wike and their children Sarah, Lily, and Ben. She is also fondly remembered by her sisters Monica and Stella Furlong and her loving caregivers Beulah Hamilton and her daughter Tia.

Josephine Nova

Oct 12, 1946 - Feb 15, 2024

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.
