In Memoriam: Nina Kretschetoff
Nina Kretschetoff passed away
on May 22, 2015 at the age of 66.
A long time resident of Sea Cliff, Nina was a beloved Gift of Life volunteer. She had an intestinal blockage and
had been scheduled for surgery at Glen Cove Hospital. She died of cardiac arrest before being taken
to the operating room. Nina and her late mother, Rita Jarovicky, were both very active and
dedicated volunteers for the Gift of Life children's charity for many, many years. Nina was predeceased
by her brother and mother. Nina died one day before the eighth anniversary of her mother's death.
Nina will be greatly missed by the entire Gift of Life community and by everyone
whose lives were touched by her generosity, compassion, and warmth. May her memory be eternal!
