Ingrid Ahlberg Warren

Ingrid Ahlberg Warren of Tuxedo, NY died Monday, April 24, 2017 in Westchester Medical Center from injuries sustained from a single vehicle accident not far from her home.

Ingrid was born in Merchantville, NJ on December 25, 1937, a Christmas gift to Walter and Eleanor Ahlberg. From the beginning Ingrid was an adventurous and curious child who delighted in exploring her neighborhood, scraping her knees and making friends with every person and animal she met. Ingrid also held a special place in her heart for the education she received from Westfield Friends School in Cinnaminson, NJ. Always creative and stylish, Ingrid went onto attend the Tobe-Coburn School in New York City in her early adulthood. There she studied fashion design and founded many lifelong friendships. It was at this time that Ingrid met and fell in love with Kirby Warren.

Ingrid and Kirby were married on June 7, 1958 and went on to establish a beautiful family home in Tenafly, NJ. Together, they created a life that was full of travel, friendship, laughter, and love. They also raised three children, Lynn, Elizabeth and William and through example showed their children how to be responsible, conscientious and caring people. Ingrid’s love for her family and the adventure of life was evident in everything she touched, every house she decorated and her determination for personal growth continued to drive her. As example, Ingrid went on to get an additional degree in Architectural Home Design in NYC. Ingrid had a successful career as a designer and loved nothing more that creating warm and welcoming spaces for her clients, friends and family.

Ingrid was also forever bonded to Long Beach Island, NJ. As a child, Ingrid and her family spent many summers on the island. She loved telling stories about sailing on the bay, swimming in the ocean and lifeguarding on the island’s beaches. Ingrid designed her dream home on Long Beach Island in the town of Harvey Cedars, NJ. This home was the family’s “touch stone” and a favorite spot for extended family to gather and share good food, beauty, love and loss together!

Ingrid was forever devoted to her eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. They each had a special relationship with their Nana Ingrid. She had the innate ability to make each one of them feel special, loved and worthy of all the good that life can bring. Nana will always be remembered by them, ready to laugh and loving them unconditionally.

Ingrid will be remembered lovingly by her church family of St. Mary’s in Tuxedo Park and Tenafly Presbyterian where she was an active and giving member. She will also be greatly missed by her friends in the Tuxedo Park Garden Club, where Ingrid loved to help arrange flowers for special events and get her hands dirty in the soil helping to plant and maintain the beautiful gardens in the Park. She gave herself to the Arts, her friends, her family, and touched the souls of all she met. Ingrid’s passion for life and inability to stop any task until the work was done will always guide those fortunate enough to have shared her space, and aggressive enough to try and keep up.

Ingrid leaves behind her husband, E. Kirby Warren; her sister, Mary Ahlberg Petersen; her daughter, Lynn Warren Peters and her husband, Jeffery; her daughter, Elizabeth Warren Wotherspoon and her husband, David; her son, William K. Warren and his wife, Maryann. She is also survived by her granddaughter, Ingrid Peters Parnell and her husband, Sean, her granddaughter, Katy Peters, her granddaughter, Brittany Wotherspoon, her granddaughter, Charlotte Warren, her granddaughter, Kirby Wotherspoon, her grandson, Patrick Warren, her grandson, Grant Peters and her granddaughter, Jessie Lynn Warren. Ingrid also leaves behind her two great grandchildren, Kennedy Parnell and Paxton Parnell, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends.

Ingrid was predeceased by her parents Walter and Eleanor Ahlberg; her brother, Walter Ahlberg Jr., and her sister, Eleanor Ahlberg MacAllister.

Please join us in celebrating Ingrid at 11 a.m. on Saturday May 6th at St. Mary’s Church, on 10 Fox Hill Rd., Tuxedo Park, NY 10987. Followed directly by a gathering of friends at The Tuxedo Club, 1 West Lake Rd., Tuxedo Park, NY 10987.

Henry Alexander Salm

Alex Salm, a long-time resident of Tuxedo Park, N.Y., died peacefully on November 14, 2016.  A graduate of Le Rosey in Switzerland, The Kent School ('37) where he was on the rowing and hockey teams and a member of the class of 1941 at Dartmouth College, he immediately joined the US Army Air Corps immediately after graduation and served honorably and with distinction in the Pacific Theater.  As commander of the 6th Squadron, 29th Bomber Group, 314th Wing, of the 20th Air Force, flying B-29's, he was in command of the famed "City of St. Louis," ultimately flying over 30 missions towards the end of World War II.  Decorations included the Distinguished Flying Cross with oak leaf cluster and the Air Medal with two oak leaf clusters.

While enjoying a career in shipping, hotel management, and commercial real estate brokerage, Alex somehow found time for numerous sailing races, notably several Transatlantic (on the winning side in 1960), Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro, Transpacific, Sydney to Hobart, Miami to Montego Bay, Newport, and Block Island Races.  He loved sailing and was a member of the New York Yacht Club, the Storm Trysail Club, Cruising Club of America, North American Station of the Royal Scandinavian Yacht Club, and the Nylandfka Jatklubben.   He was also a life-long member of the Union Club in New York and served on the board of the National Horse Show. 

A man of many talents, Alex was at home on his lawn mower or up a tree with a saw, and he loved to serve as his own "butler" as a way of scaring off would-be salesmen.  While often professing to be a "hermit," he actually loved to host sailing reunions, Thanksgiving Dinners (would set the table himself) and Gold Racquets weekend opening parties.  Always a "law and order" man, after his daily breakfast at the local diner where he loved mixing with all the local citizens, he brought a cup of coffee and doughnut to the guard at the gate to Tuxedo Park, and was a long-time supporter of the Tuxedo Police and Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Corps.  He loved the history of the area, knew who lived at which house and when "before the war," and delighted at being the oldest participant in such events as the annual Tuxedo Club Ball and the Memorial Day parade in town.  He particularly enjoyed sitting on his porch with his friends, watching the sunsets and having good conversation.

A benefactor to many, the new boathouses at the Kent School and Tuxedo Club were a source of pride and joy ("and a good place to throw a party!").

The family would like to recognize his long friendships made at the Orange Top and with Tina Smith and Jun Viray, without whom his joy in life would not have been possible.

Alex is survived by his first cousin, John Train, and many "nieces and nephews" - the 17 sons and daughters of his other predeceased first cousins: James Gerard, Sumner Gerard, Coster Gerard, and Peter Salm.  

A funeral will be held at St. Mary's Church in Tuxedo Park, NY on Thursday, November 17, 2016, at 11am.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Tuxedo Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Corps.

Thomas J. Sullivan

Thomas Joseph Sullivan, a 20-year resident of Naples, Fla., and a former resident of Monroe, passed away Friday, Jan. 10, 2014.

Tom was born in the Bronx on Nov. 14, 1927, to Margaret Mary and John Sullivan.

He had two older brothers who preceded him in death, John and Stephen Sullivan.

John married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Marjorie Ann McKeon, also of the Bronx. The two were married for 66 years.

Tom graduated the same year as Marjorie from St. Nicholas of Tolentine High School in the Bronx in 1945. He went on to graduate from Manhattan College in 1950 after serving in post-World War II Germany in the U.S. Army.

He worked for Chevrolet Motor Division for 17 years in Tarrytown and White Plains. He and Marjorie became dealer/owners of Tom Sullivan Chevrolet in Monroe in 1966. They jointly ran their business until retiring to Naples, Fla., in 1994.

Marge and Tom had five children and he was a devoted father. His family meant the world to him and he was always known as “the most fun father” on the block.

He was always active in the parishes where they lived and was a lector and Eucharistic minister at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Naples.

He loved sports, getting together with family and friends and his humor and laughter always lit up any room he was in.

He was a great story teller, a trait his grandchildren particularly loved. He loved to sing and could burst into song on a moment’s notice. He particularly loved to sing happy birthday, his own renditions of it, to the delight of his family.

Besides his wife, Marjorie, Tom is survived by his five children: Kathleen Ricker (Gerald) of Colorado Springs, Co., Gail Sobolewski (Thomas) of West Sand Lake, Diane Dempsey (Martin) of Fort Myer, Va., Margaret Sullivan of Falls Church, Va., and William Sullivan (Patricia) of Walden.
