Nanette M. Grasman

d. July 25, 2023

Nanette “Gigi” Grasman, a deeply cherished wife, sister, mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend, passed away peacefully at her home in Holbrook, New York on July 25, 2023, after a courageous battle with metastatic lung cancer. Born on March 30, 1960, in Freeport, New York, Nan lived a life marked by kindness, thoughtfulness, and abundant love.

 

Receiving her education at Lindenhurst Public School, Nan was an intelligent, caring, and diligent student, qualities that would prove foundational in her later life. She carried these traits into her professional career, where she served as a highly respected Administrator for The Resource Group and the Copiague School District. Always putting others before herself, Nan’s work ethic was exemplary, and she became a beloved figure in her workplace.

 

Above all, Nan was a dedicated homemaker and an inspiring mother. She poured her heart into raising her four children: Warren, Thomas, Britney, and Ryan. Her love for her family was deep and unwavering, and is reflected in the family values and love for one another that her children all share. She was also a doting grandmother to Amelia, Violet, Luna and Zoe whose lives she enriched with her warmth, wisdom, and endearing sense of humor.

 

Nan’s husband, Warren Grasman, Jr., was her cherished partner of many beautiful years. Their love story was one of mutual respect, shared dreams, endless laughter, and unbreakable bonds. Warren was not only her husband but also her best friend, confidant, and rock, providing strength and support throughout her life and especially during her illness.

 

Outside of her family and work, Nan cultivated a life of varied interests that brought her great joy and satisfaction. She loved fishing and crabbing, finding peace and tranquility in the rhythm of the sea. An ardent reader, Nan would often be seen immersed in a book, exploring different worlds and perspectives through the written word. She enjoyed spending hours by the pool, basking in the sun, and playing with her grandkids. Beach trips were a special favorite of Nan’s, where she reveled in the simple pleasures of the sand between her toes and the calming sound of ocean waves.

 

Nan’s life was a testament to the words of Helen Keller: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” She was a beacon of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness. Those who knew her were touched by her gentle spirit, her resilience, and her unwavering positivity even in the face of adversity.

 

Her laughter, her warmth, and her love will be missed dearly, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of those she touched. Nanette Grasman was a gift to this world, a woman of strength and beauty, who found joy in every moment and taught those around her to do the same. As we remember Nan, let us celebrate her life, honor her memory, and strive to embody the values she held dear.
