Meeker, Emily (Emy) Jones On March 27th,of Somers, NY passed away peacefully at the age of 74. Emily had been musically serenaded for two days in intensive care by her eight loving children, five of her eighteen grandchildren, and many dear friends and colleagues. 

Emy was born to Walter Clyde Jones and Emily Watt of Glenco, IL in 1933. She is survived by her sister Mary Helen McKeldin (Georgia), and her brothers W. Clyde Jones (Illinois) and William Jones (Florida) and her children Emily O’Mahoney (Florida), Grace McKeegan (California), Dorothy Wolfe (Vermont), Mary Alber (Nevada), John Meeker Jr.(Somers), and Elizabeth Meeker (Connecticut).  She is also survived by her grandchildren: Erin Rose, Katie, Brian, Danny, Megan, Kathleen, Jessica, Sarah, Michele, John, Nicole, Alec, Madeline, Danielle, Sean, Kelly, Heather and David.
 
Emy received her BA from Smith College in 1955 where she majored in English. She has expressed her love of literature through voracious reading and completing the most challenging of crossword puzzles (New York Times exclusively). One of her favorite forms of socialization was playing Bridge.
 
Emy married John G. Meeker in 1956 with whom she raised five daughters and a son in Arizona, New Jersey, and New York. Her love for children extended beyond her own to include volunteering at a school for wayward boys, acting in children’s theatre, reading for the blind, and serving on many PTA organizations. After her first three children were in college, she opened her heart and family to include two more children, Susan Rosvally O’Mahoney and Harry Rosvally, at ages 17 and 14, after both their parents had passed away.

Emy was always on the move as an active tennis player and distance swimmer; she often swam across the lake that she loved in northern New Jersey, where the children spent summers growing up. As a passionate traveler, Emy always enjoyed new cultural adventures and experiences and encouraged her children and grandchildren to explore the world as well.

As the former proprietor of Fire Glow Distributors of Jefferson Valley, now run by her son, John Jr., Emy enjoyed working there as an accountant and salesperson after retirement as well. Her other passion was singing with the Chappaqua Singers for which she was a mainstay for over 35 years. As a member of the United Methodist Church of Purdys for over three decades, she will be greatly missed there – especially by the alto section of the choir.

Dr. William H. Smith, 88, of Katonah, died on October 22, 2008.  Dr. Smith (“Doc”) was born in NYC on December 16, 1919 and was raised in Cold Spring, NY.  He attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine and interned in pediatrics at the University of Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania.  During WWII he served in the Army in the medical corps.  In 1950 he settled in Katonah to work as the first pediatrician at the newly formed Katonah Medical Group.  He practiced with the group for 40 years and was the long-time Katonah-Lewisboro School district physician, a job he continued for years after retirement from the medical group.  An interest in scouting led to his role as Scoutmaster of Katonah Troop #1, BSA, a position he held for the past 52 years.  During those years he attended national and international jamborees, hiked miles of trails including some in the Swiss Alps, was a leader and mentor to thousands of boys and guided 63 of his scouts to the rank of Eagle.

Doc was a long-time member of the Northeast Westchester Rotary Club where he held the office of Sergeant at Arms and was a past recipient of the club’s Stan Schaefer Award.  He was a fixture at the club’s fundraisers and rarely missed meetings even when away from his home club.  Doc was a member of the Katonah United Methodist Church where he often played his harmonica during services. 

Doc loved spending time at his camp on Lovewell Pond in Fryeburg, Maine and especially looked forward to the yearly canoe trip on the Saco River with the scout troop. Known for his unique sense of humor, quirky sayings, extemporaneous poetry and harmonica serenades, he will be greatly missed by generations of patients, scouts and friends.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 1 at the Katonah United Methodist Church at 11am.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Dr. Smith’s memory may be made to the William H. Smith Memorial Fund, 171 Bedford Rd., Katonah, NY 10536

Meeker, Emily (Emy) Jones On March 27th,of Somers, NY passed away peacefully at the age of 74. Emily had been musically serenaded for two days in intensive care by her eight loving children, five of her eighteen grandchildren, and many dear friends and colleagues.

Clyde Jones (Illinois) and William Jones (Florida) and her children Emily O’Mahoney (Florida), Grace McKeegan (California), Dorothy Wolfe (Vermont), Mary Alber (Nevada), John Meeker Jr.(Somers), and Elizabeth Meeker (Connecticut).  She is also survived by her grandchildren: Erin Rose, Katie, Brian, Danny, Megan, Kathleen, Jessica, Sarah, Michele, John, Nicole, Alec, Madeline, Danielle, Sean, Kelly, Heather and David.
 
Emy received her BA from Smith College in 1955 where she majored in English. She has expressed her love of literature through voracious reading and completing the most challenging of crossword puzzles (New York Times exclusively). One of her favorite forms of socialization was playing Bridge.
 
Emy married John G. Meeker in 1956 with whom she raised five daughters and a son in Arizona, New Jersey, and New York. Her love for children extended beyond her own to include volunteering at a school for wayward boys, acting in children’s theatre, reading for the blind, and serving on many PTA organizations. After her first three children were in college, she opened her heart and family to include two more children, Susan Rosvally O’Mahoney and Harry Rosvally, at ages 17 and 14, after both their parents had passed away.

Emy was always on the move as an active tennis player and distance swimmer; she often swam across the lake that she loved in northern New Jersey, where the children spent summers growing up. As a passionate traveler, Emy always enjoyed new cultural adventures and experiences and encouraged her children and grandchildren to explore the world as well.

As the former proprietor of Fire Glow Distributors of Jefferson Valley, now run by her son, John Jr., Emy enjoyed working there as an accountant and salesperson after retirement as well. Her other passion was singing with the Chappaqua Singers for which she was a mainstay for over 35 years. As a member of the United Methodist Church of Purdys for over three decades, she will be greatly missed there – especially by the alto section of the choir.

Dr. William H. Smith, 88, of Katonah, died on October 22, 2008.  Dr. Smith (“Doc”) was born in NYC on December 16, 1919 and was raised in Cold Spring, NY.  He attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine and interned in pediatrics at the University of Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania.  During WWII he served in the Army in the medical corps.  In 1950 he settled in Katonah to work as the first pediatrician at the newly formed Katonah Medical Group.  He practiced with the group for 40 years and was the long-time Katonah-Lewisboro School district physician, a job he continued for years after retirement from the medical group.  An interest in scouting led to his role as Scoutmaster of Katonah Troop #1, BSA, a position he held for the past 52 years.  During those years he attended national and international jamborees, hiked miles of trails including some in the Swiss Alps, was a leader and mentor to thousands of boys and guided 63 of his scouts to the rank of Eagle.

Doc was a long-time member of the Northeast Westchester Rotary Club where he held the office of Sergeant at Arms and was a past recipient of the club’s Stan Schaefer Award.  He was a fixture at the club’s fundraisers and rarely missed meetings even when away from his home club.  Doc was a member of the Katonah United Methodist Church where he often played his harmonica during services. 

Doc loved spending time at his camp on Lovewell Pond in Fryeburg, Maine and especially looked forward to the yearly canoe trip on the Saco River with the scout troop. Known for his unique sense of humor, quirky sayings, extemporaneous poetry and harmonica serenades, he will be greatly missed by generations of patients, scouts and friends.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 1 at the Katonah United Methodist Church at 11am.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Dr. Smith’s memory may be made to the William H. Smith Memorial Fund, 171 Bedford Rd., Katonah, NY 10536
