Obituary

We mourn the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother Dolores Sebestyen. We are truly broken-hearted and will miss her so much. She fought a fierce battle against Covid-19 and sad to say, she succumbed to it on Monday, May 4, 2020. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY to John and Mary Gervasi and raised with her brother John. She met and married the love of her life, Peter Sebestyen in June, 1964. Her joy was always her family and she and Peter were blessed with 2 daughters, Gabrielle and Angela. They moved to Long Island and raised their family there until tragically, her husband Peter died after 19 years of marriage of a massive heart attack at the age of 43. She never remarried, remaining a widow and devoted to her daughters and family. Dolores was known for her feistiness and sense of humor, despite the pain of living with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporosis for almost 30 years. Her daughters considered her to be a warrior in the face of a difficult life and she was loved by many. Even the hospital staff at Plainview hospital the last month of her life paid tribute to her sense of humor and fighting spirit, in the face of Corona virus and the complications that arose while treating her... She is survived by her daughters Gabrielle (Nick), and Angela (Anthony), and her beloved grandchildren, Nicholas, Kristina, and Ava, as well as her very loved cat, Domino. Her extended family includes her niece, Maria, and nephews George(Ellen), Brent(Vera) and Darren, as well as her sister in law Kathy(John), and cousin Grace. Mom, we love you and may you sleep peacefully, free of pain and suffering. Always in our hearts.
