Margaret C. Playford
Margaret C. Playford ('Nanny P'), the beloved mother of Marianne (Frank) Lombardo, Ruthann (Louis) Lombardo, Robert (Doreen) Ferris and Cindy Playford passed away on October 3, 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her son Richard Ferris Jr. in 1977 and her husband Richard Playford in 1997.
She was born in Poughkeepsie, NY on December 22, 1926. She lived her life in Peekskill, Ossining, Garrison and Ellenville before moving to Cold Spring 15 years ago.
Nanny dedicated her life to her 12 Grandchildren (Karen and Michael Khadabux, Frank and Jill Lombardo, Michael and Rosalyn Lombardo, Christine and Scott Shubert, Tina and Tom LaBelle, Kathy Lombardo Hunt, Louis and Marcella Lombardo, Tony and Julie Lombardo, Melanie, Alisa,
Robert and Danielle Ferris) and her 25 Great Grandchildren (Andrew, Catherine, Sarah, Elizabeth and Mikalah, John, Dominic and Marissa , Arianna and Michael, Jennifer, Ryan and Nicole, Joey, Fox and Evan, John and Kara, Daniel, Michael and Angelo, Emily and Anthony, Hannah and Grace).
She taught all the importance of family. No matter the question, she always had the answers. Her greatest joy was being with 'her kids', going to 'her river' and her nightly ice cream cone. Nanny will be missed by all that knew her.
There was a service on Thursday, October 5 at the Cold Spring Cemetary. In lieu of flowers Marge requested that donations be made to Westchester/Putnam Hospice or the American Cancer Society so that another family could be helped.
