Obituary of Louise Gohring
Louise Melucci Gohring passed on March 5, 2020. She lived an exceptionally healthy life until the last year.
Louise was born October 16, 1920 at 179 Broadway in Haverstraw, New York. She was the daughter of Louis and Lucretia Petrone Melucci. On October 28, 1945 she married John Gohring of Valley Cottage. The marriage was performed by Justice of the Peace Irvin F. Dillon.
Louise was predeceased by her parents and all of her siblings: Anthony Melucci, Frances Campi, Mary Melucci, Charles Melucci and Philomena Fitzpatrick. John, her husband of 63 years died in 2009. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Mary Lou and Robert I. Dillon as well as five nephews and four nieces.
Louise worked in various factories in Haverstraw before her marriage. In 1955 she went to work at Helen Hayes Hospital from which she retired in 1985.
Louise's family will never forget the unfailing kindness and attention of the staff at Bowline Park in Haverstraw. For more than a decade of spending summers by the pool she felt like a grandmother to dozens of young men and women who, upon her arrival would announce, "Louise is here!"
The care of the staff of the Joe Raso Hospice Residence provided the dignity and comfort that allowed her death to be exactly as she had requested.
Visitation will be at the TJ McGowan & Sons Funeral Home, 133 Broadway, Haverstraw, NY on Sunday March 8th from 2PM - 4PM and 7PM - 9PM. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated for Louise on Monday, March 9th at 11:15AM at St. Peter's & St. Mary's Church, 115 Broadway, Haverstraw, with interment to follow at St.Pauls Highview Cemetery, Middletown Rd. & Church St., Nanuet, NY.
