Announcing the untimely passing of Eileen B. Previll “Miss Gerstein” daughter of Isidore and Gertrude. Wife of Harry S. Previll, sister of Alan and Stewart Gerstein and the late Judy Kadan.


After a six month fierce and tumultuous battle with lung cancer Eileen passed peacefully at her home she shared with her husband in Melbourne, Fl. along with their dogs, cat and “dear friends”. She will be missed by her classmates whom she graduated with in 1965 from the Ellenville School, Ellenville, NY and also Plattsburgh Teachers College. Eileen taught math at the Rondout Valley Middle School in Kyserike, NY.


Eileen leaves her fellow teachers, her friends from the Accord Food Pantry, All Faith Chapel in Melbourne at F.I.T. and just about everyone she met. She never met a “Bingo” hall or Casino she didn’t love to hate. Eileen lived life to the fullest and fought hard and now has a date with “Our Lord.”
