BRANCHVILLE - Nellie Humphreys passed quietly on the morning of July 11, 2014, after a long illness. She was born Neeltje Kool, in West-Graftdijk, the Netherlands, on April 1, 1924, to Dirk and Elizabeth (Hottentot) Kool. During the war years she worked as a nurse's aide in a tuberculosis sanitarium for children in Amsterdam. It was the beginning of a lifelong career in nursing. She married Josef Steinhardt in 1946 and they came to the United States that same year. Upon becoming a U.S. citizen, Neeltje changed her first name to Nellie. Josef passed away in 1963, leaving Nellie a widow with three young children. While working a full-time job, she raised her children and went to school, earning a bachelor's degree in nursing and a Master of Arts in education from New York University in 1971. In 1973, she married Theodore Humphreys and together they moved to Wilmington, N.Y., where they enjoyed camping, hiking, skiing and sailing. In retirement, they spent winters on their sailboat in St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles. Nellie was predeceased by Ted in January of 2012. She also is predeceased by her brothers, Hendrick and Simon. She is survived by three children: Ellen Steinhardt, Michael Steinhardt, his wife, Kathleen, Lorraine Steinhardt Ernst, her husband, Steve; five stepchildren: Raymond Humphreys, Patricia Kugel, Gary Humphreys, Diane Whitten and Barbara Humphreys; and by numerous grand- and great-grandchildren.

NEWTON -- Morgan Michael Owens Sr. (Mike), of Newton (formerly of Massapequa, L.I), passed away July 9, 2014. Born in Corona, N.Y., he was the son of Joseph Owens and Anna Cassen and was raised in Rockville Centre, N.Y., with his brother Joseph and sisters Mary and Elizabeth. Mike was the beloved husband of the late Rosemary Murphy Owens. He is survived by his five children: Morgan Michael Jr and his wife, Gladys, Rosemary Labozza and her husband, Jack, Maureen Gismervik, Paul J. Owens, M.D., and his wife, Mary, and Maria Forenza and her husband, Steve. He is also survived and cherished by 16 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and his beloved nieces Jean Abate, Patricia Owczarek, Mary Ann Eckhoff and Ellen Moran, and his nephew William Larkin. Mike enlisted in the U.S. Navy on July 24, 1943, after completing his junior year in high school and trained to become a radio operator in the South Pacific Theater, where he was awarded a number of ribbons and medals. After his honorable discharge in 1946, he earned his GED and graduated from Melville Radio Institute in 1947. He became a licensed radio telegraph operator in the Merchant Marine until 1951, after which he continued as an amateur radio operator with call sign K2BKF. He worked in the construction industry in New York City selling heavy equipment for Theodore Burke and Son and then the JI Case Co., until his retirement in 1991. For the past five years, he had worked as a professional companion for his grandson through Easter Seals. Mike was a parishioner in St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church and lived independently at Bristol Glen, where he maintained a number of friendships. He was a charter member of the "ROMEOs" (Retired Old Men Eating Out), which included his good friend and neighbor Werner Lutz. He was a loyal, lifelong Yankee fan, although he would root for the Mets as well. And like Lou Gehrig, Mike considered himself to be the luckiest man in the world. Visitation will be held Friday, July 11, from 2 to 4:30 and 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Powell Funeral Home Inc., 67 Broadway (Route 110), Amityville, N.Y.
