Dear Neighbors,

                It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of Florence Lisanti, former Village Deputy Mayor, Trustee and Village Historian.  Florence will be deeply missed by so many in New Hyde Park, but her love and dedication to our village will not be forgotten. 

                Florence loved New Hyde Park and worked very hard to always make it, “a great place to live”.  She was actively involved in running the village and could often be found at Village Hall, lending a sympathetic ear to her neighbor’s concerns.  Florence researched the origins of New Hyde Park and enlightened so many of us on how this village on the plains came to be.  She helped us develop a greater sense of pride in our town, so we would take better care of it. 

                Viewing will be on Sunday, June 30 and Monday, July 1 at the New Hyde Park Funeral Home, 500 Lakeville Road.   The Funeral Mass will be on Tuesday, July 2nd at Notre Dame Church, 45 Mayfair Road, New Hyde Park. 

                Florence was a loyal and long-time Village resident, dedicated Village Trustee, and kind friend to us all.   The thoughts and prayers from all of us, past and present from the village, are with Florence’s family and friends.
