Vinnie Mccreight

March 27, 1928 — February 27, 2024

Vinnie  McCreight passed away peacefully at home on February 27, 2024. She was born on March 27, 1928 and was predeceased by her parents, Antonio and Maria Caputo; siblings, Nancy (Danny) Cavaluzzi and John (Ann) Caputo and her only son William McCreight (Nancy Lavelle) with whom she is now eternally reunited. She is survived by her daughter, Dorothy (Scott Tiernan; grandchildren Eric, Danielle and Jessica Tiernan and great-grandchildren Dominic and Brandon Dillon and Marissa and Jaxon Tiernan; very close nieces and nephews Toni, Christopher and Kaiya Dunne, Daniel and Joseph Cavaluzzi, Barbara (Richard) Sehring and Jonathan (Georgia) Caputo.

She was born in Manhattan and lived in the Yorkville section until she moved to the Bronx shortly after she was married. She raised her children in the Bronx and took care of both her parents who lived downstairs in their two-family home. She relocated to Chester, New York 31 years ago to be near her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She enjoyed a 40-year career at AT&T and was executive assistant to the Vice President. She truly loved her job, developed her love of "papers", and loved the lifelong friends she made there, especially her dearest friends Veronica Weber, Deme Boutzalis, Lois Hollander and Edie Maloney. Vinnie was larger than life and lived her life to the fullest. She was an avid tennis player and loved playing volleyball for St. Clare's in the Bronx. When she was no longer able to play tennis and volleyball, she joined a bowling league, never having played previously, and continued until she was 90.

She loved everything musical - playing guitar, dancing and singing. She performed with a classical choral group in the Bronx and a barbershop choral group in Orange County and even sang Christmas carols one year at Rockefeller Center. She was involved in a military wives' theater group in Orange County that travelled to the City monthly, enjoying the various plays, restaurants and comradery. She made many good friends in every group she became involved with due to her always smiling and charismatic personality. Vinnie was loving, optimistic, positive, supportive - every positive adjective could be used to truly describe her. Vinnie's many interests were all second to her love of family. Her family was her life and the void she left will be felt deeply by all she left behind. Many thanks to the compassion and care of Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties.
