Heneberger, Tracy Walling  
1954 - 2015 Born in New London, CT on November 7, 1954, Tracy W. Heneberger, 60, died February 28, 2015 after a courageous yearlong struggle with glioblastoma. He grew up in Brazil, graduated from HS in Rye, New York, then earned a degree in Journalism from NYU. His interests soon thereafter turned to art and sculpture which became his career and life's passion. Tracy shared life in Brooklyn, NY with his wife, artist Susan Mayr, and their many close friends. He loved collecting organic materials for his pieces; working in his studio; casting bronze in Beijing, where he also lectured at the Central Academy of Fine Arts; and exhibiting his work. Tracy's sculpture often started with organic or mineral forms, later permanently sealed in bronze or aluminum casts, shellac or resin. As described at his 2010 Seton Hall University show, "Heneberger often uses iterations of materials that organize smaller parts into a well-ordered whole of line, pattern, color and shape. By combining natural elements in rhythmic ways, the end result is at once rich in detail and yet elegantly simple." Significant to Tracy's artwork were experiences around nature and water growing up. As he expressed for his show "Undercurrent" at Kerrigan Campbell Gallery in 2003, "I am at home in water. When near a body of water - a creek, a lake, an ocean - I want to be in it.... The places with which I have identified most of my life - Bahia, Rio, Newport and Norcross Pond, Maine - all are defined to me by family and water. For me, some of nature's most poetic and spirited theatre occurs under water. At a healthy reef schools of fish pour over the coral in molten metal.... and the entire reef.... vibrates with movement, color and possibility." In addition to doing his creative work, some of Tracy's happiest times in life were spent during summer trips to Mabou, Nova Scotia with Susan, and family visits to Norcross Pond, ME; Newport, RI; Sarasota, FL; and Newark, DE. Among the things that made Tracy a great companion were his sense of humor, intelligence, quick wit, adaptability, eagerness and devotion. He was polite, considerate, extremely hard working, and had all the attributes of a natural leader. Tracy was passionate about his family, his friends, his art and standing up for his values, and we were passionate in our love and admiration for him. Memories of life with Tracy will always be treasured. Tracy is the grandson of Captain and Mrs. Harry B. Heneberger and General and Mrs. Samuel B. Griffith. He is survived by his loving wife, Susan; parents Harry and Belle G. Heneberger; sister Belle Heneberger (Joseph Melancon); nephews Joshua and Jacob (Marissa) Melancon; their children Jaya, Tayton (Joshua) and Braxton (Jacob); maternal aunt Jane Griffith and cousins William Bell, Bruce and Robert Rushing; Susan's sisters: Patricia (Thomas) Twilley; Carol Buczik; and Judy Mayr; nieces and nephews Laura Buczik and Evan Winfree (Carol); Dustin Twilley and Lindsay Tadduni (Patricia); and many other beloved family and friends.

HOLZER, ROSE - Aventura  
HOLZER--Rose, (nee Last)--on March 30, a still-vital and amazing 99, but sadly, just before the holiday that she loved best: Passover. Born to an Orthodox family in Greenpoint, Brooklyn on February 6, 1916, she attended the Monitor School and Eastern District High, and traveled widely with her brothers before marrying her true love, the late Charles Holzer, in 1948. As the long-reigning matriarch of several generations, she proudly instilled Jewish and family values, not to mention high standards and toughness against all odds--a lifelong caregiver who her family took pride in caring for during the golden years of her long, blessed life. Survived by devoted children Harold Holzer and his wife Edith, Deanne Holzer, and Susanne Holzer Miller; her adoring grandchildren Remy Holzer Kirsch (and her husband Adam), Meg Holzer, and Emily Miller; and her beloved greatgrandson Charles Ezra Kirsch.

Locker, Irene Poldy  
1916 - 2015 Irene Poldy Locker, 98 of Scarsdale, NY passed away peacefully at her home on March 16, of natural causes. Born in Vienna, Austria on November 4, 1916 to Gustav and Frieda Locker, Poldy was a young lady when Germany invaded Austria. The family lived above the synagogue they attended, and Poldy, the eldest of three sisters, told of parting the curtains to witness the burning of the Torah by an anti-Semitic mob. In 1939, Poldy was able to immigrate to America because of the help of a stranger whose address she found in a telephone book, Herbert Locker of NYC. Herbert Locker provided the necessary affidavit of financial support, which enabled Poldy to obtain a visa to enter the U.S. Poldy was eventually able to bring her parents and two sisters to New York. And she married Herbert Locker. For many years, Poldy was a homemaker in the Bronx and then in Ardsley, New York. She volunteered in several capacities at Dobbs Ferry Hospital. An accomplished cook and supreme baker, Poldy ran and hosted restaurants for Pergamon Press in Elmsford, and Bloomingdales in White Plains. As hostess for Bloomingdales public restaurant, she enjoyed meeting and conversing with a diverse clientele and staff. Always a hard worker and person of high culinary standards, Poldy earned the respect of co-workers and supervisors until her retirement at age 83. Pre-deceased by her husband, sister Herta Rettig, and brothers in law Jack Knoll and Gene Rettig, Poldy leaves three sons – Jim (Ilene) of Stamford, Howard (Christine) of Dallas and George of New York City. She also leaves four grandchildren, Barry, Howard, Elena and Aaron, one sister, Dora Knoll, nieces Geraldine and Jane, nephew Michael, and all of their children and grandchildren.
