Obituary of Elizabeth Lavin
Elizabeth B. Lavin, a resident of West Nyack for 56 years, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 1, 2019. Born October 26, 1933 to Eugene and Bridget Brady in Manhattan, NY. Liz was predeceased by her parents, brother Eugene Brady, niece Megan Brady and the love of her life, her husband of 60 years Tom Lavin in February 2018. She was the loving Mom to Eileen (Herman) Dohmann, Patricia (John) Lennon and Jeanne Marie Pavia and the best Grandma Liz to Jeffrey (Michelle), Gregory and Patrick (Stephaine) Dohmann, Kathryn, Thomas and Matthew Lennon and Jordan and Spencer Pavia. Sister in law to Sr. Eileen Lavin and Katherine Brady Petersen and Aunt Liz to many nieces and nephews.
Liz graduated St. Vincent’s Hospital School of Nursing in 1954 working at the Bronx VA, St. Vincent’s Hospital and finishing her nursing career at Nyack Hospital for 34 years with the last 17 as Vice President - Nursing. Liz was known as a “Nurse’s Nurse”, firm but friendly and always approachable. Everyone who knew “Mrs. Lavin” knew that she had “the hook” at Nyack and they could call her in an instant with a nursing question from an emergency to a long term admission and she was called often! Mom loved her vacations with her favorite being the 2 weeks at LBI when all 15 family members were in attendance. Trips to Honey Bubbles and the traditional Grandchildren trip to Surflight Theatre were times she treasured. She enjoyed reading and took many trips with Tom.
