Your editor received the very sad news that Gina Costanzo, wife of Grand Knight Joseph Costanzo, has passed away.

Gina was someone I referred to affectionately as one of Croton's "church ladies", and that is how I knew her best. But she was more than that.

Always there to lend a hand at Holy Name events, she was a tireless volunteer at countless St. Patrick's celebrations, Oktoberfests, numerous other Knights of Columbus events, the annual church rummage sale, and so much more. That she managed to do all this while being  impeccably coiffed and with a genuine smile, was just another of her many gifts. She was also sweet, kind, carried herself with grace, an excellent listener, and was a "roll up your sleeves and just do it" kind of woman.  I will miss seeing her.

Visitation will be held on Monday February 4th, 2019 from 6-9 PM and
Tuesday February 5th 2-4 PM and 6-9 PM, at Holy Name of Mary Church, 110
Grand St., Croton-on-Hudson, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be
celebrated at 10:00am on Wednesday, February 6th also at Holy Name
Church. Burial will follow at St. Augustine Cemetery, Ossining, NY.

The Knights will officially honor Gina by saying a decade of the Rosary at 8 PM during Tuesday's visitation.

DONATIONS CAN BE MADE TO Calvary Hospital OR St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
