Beloved Gift of Life volunteer Nina Kretschetoff passed away on May 22, 2015 at the age of 66. A long time Sea Cliff resident, Nina 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 very active and dedicated volunteers for the Gift of Life for many, many years. Nina was predeceased by her brother and mother. Nina died one day before the 8th anniversary of 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!
