Eileen B. Previll

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.”


Visitation will be held on Friday, December 23, 2016 at Humiston Funeral Home, Kerhonkson from 11-4pm.

I would like to thank Eileen's family for this opportunity to say goodbye to my precious friend. I have such great memories from unforgettable times with Eileen and all of the people that were included during this all too short visit to this earth. I will never forget her very special soul. I miss you Eileen.

Mrs. Previll was my 8th grade math teacher, and always had a place in my heart. I am sadden to hear about her passing, especially because I just saw her this spring at the Relay Event at RVCSD and took pictures together. She is one reason that I became a teacher myself. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

I first met Eileen at Stone Dock Golf Course in Stone Ridge, NY. We were members of the same golf league, and became friends. We re met at Alapaha Golf Course and played in their league. we played competitive fun Golf. I enjoyed her bawdy sense of humor, her soft spoken, gentle nature, and her kindness. I was so incredibly sad to learn of her passing. I will miss her dearly. She was a woman of grace.

Hi Alan and Harry, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Eileen will always be an amazing lady whether she be here with us or with the good Lord. May you find comfort in knowing that she is not suffering anymore, and she has found peace. Sincerely, Kevin and Cathy
