Annette McGrath

May 3, 1930 ~ May 10, 2023 (age 93) 93 Years Old



Loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, who was always surrounded by a caring family:

Her 6 children: John, Charleen, Brian, Kim, Michael, Laura

Her 21 grandchildren: Britt, Carly, Kevin, Casey, Andrew, Mathew, Emily, Loren, Kristen, Kailene, Kevin, Kristina, Brian, Christopher, Margaret, Joseph, Michelle, Andrea, Nicolas, Alexander, Julia

And 19 great grandchildren!

Annette loved her family, friends and neighbors and she devoted her time to St. Brigid’s Church and the Rosary Society.  She exemplified God’s message through her actions - serving needy families in the church community, and advocating for the unborn. Her life was blessed with a strong faith in God, and an endless spirit of giving to those in need. She made a deep impact on those who were fortunate to know her and she touched many lives with joy and happiness. Her family will be forever inspired by her passion of caring and loving towards everyone and her powerful prayer. 

She was fortunate to have been married for 60 years to 2 wonderful husbands, first to Charlie Conners, who passed away in 1976, and then to Capt. Edward McGrath, who passed away in 2017. 

Viewing is scheduled for Thursday, May 18, 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm at Donahue-Cecere Funeral Home, 290 Post Avenue, Westbury NY. The  funeral mass is scheduled for 9:45 am on Friday, May 19 at St Brigid’s Church, 85 Post Avenue, Westbury. She will be interred at Pinelawn National Cemetary
