Sad to Report the Passing of Laura Deckelman
This just reported by Alan Silverstein, Class of 1970.

Dear friends, family & members,

I am so sad to announce that our dear friend Laura Deckelman has just passed away this morning, May 5, 2020

Laura will always be remembered for all her beautiful photography she has taken of the Rockaways and other beautiful photos. Laura played a very large part and was a strong advocate of making the ferry system a permanent part of the entire Rockaway peninsula through New York City's transportation system.  Laura will now be with her husband Paul who she loved very much.

Laura will be sadly missed. May she rest in peace.

If you would like to share memories about Laura, please email them to me at the following email address or go to the Friends of Old Far Rockaway and Rockaways and post your memory there.
