Anne M. Estroff passed away peacefully on February 19, 2012 at the age of 61 in her Kerhonkson, NY home, after courageously battling breast cancer for 12 long years.
Anne, daughter of the late Josephine and Albert Meyer, born in Callicoon, NY, grew up in Mileses, NY, and moved to Kerhonkson in 1968.
