With extremely heavy hearts, the Board of Directors of the Junior League of Long Island regrets to announce the passing of our fellow Board member, Alicia Aguilera, on March 26th, 2021.
Alicia was the true embodiment of the mission of The League, through her countless hours of volunteerism, and deep rooted passion to give back to her community. During her 14 years with the League, Alicia held numerous positions including Membership Development Co-Chair, Done In A Day Chair, First Step Co-Chair and Projects & Research Director. She led projects such as Thanksgiving baskets, brunch for Ronald McDonald House, Kids in the Kitchen, as well as the Halloween Party, and the International Day of the Girl event hosted at the Yes, We Can Community Center.
Alicia was heavily involved in all of Junior League’s events. Even while fighting her long and hard battle with cancer, Alicia never hesitated to raise a hand to help and fill in a slot where she was able. Her beaming personality could be felt from across the room. She always was one to make you feel special and this was because of her unconditional love for those around her and in her life.
Alicia was the Associate Director at North Shore Day School where she worked for over twenty years. Alicia had an extraordinary way with children and it was evident by the way they flocked towards her at any event. She was most proud of her nieces and nephews, Peyton, Dylan, Brian, Olivia, Mia and Ramon. She will always be looking after them.
Alicia, “our sunshine” will truly be missed. We sincerely thank her for her impact on our members, community and world. We love you Alicia and will always be missing you.
Alicia’s family will receive loved ones from 9:30am – 1:30pm Wednesday March 31st at Thomas F. Dalton Funeral Home 2786 Hempstead Turnpike Levittown, NY 11756, for a wake in honor of the beloved. In lieu of flowers, Alicia’s family has graciously opened a donation page for the Junior of Long Island as it was a meaningful part of Alicia’s life.
