Obituary

It is with sadness that we share the passing of Gloria (Gresalfi) O’Brien who passed away on January 5, 2022.  Gloria was an incredible wife, mother, sister and grandmother.  She was loved by everyone.  She attended Mineola High School where she excelled academically and athletically.   After marrying the love of her life, Don, they lived in Syosset where they adopted their first child, Lisa, before moving to Nesconset where they then adopted Donald. While there she worked in the Smithtown School District as an assistant secretary to the Superintendent and then became a teacher’s aide in the pre-school. She was a breast cancer survivor of over 38 years. After the passing of her husband, Don, in 1994, she moved to Fairfield in St. James where she became very active in her community.  Her special love was dancing.  She will be forever in our hearts and will be missed deeply.

Beloved wife of the late Donald O’Brien

Beloved mother of Lisa Baio and Donald O’Brien

Beloved grandmother to Bryan, Elisabeth, Michael, Jack & Sara

Beloved brother of Joseph Gresalfi
