Remembered for her strength, love, smile, Elizabeth Regan, 88


Elizabeth Regan of East Hampton passed away June 23, 2020. She was 88.

Born Feb. 3, 1932, in Adrigole, County Cork, Ireland, to parents Mary and Michael Corkery and grandparents John and Elizabeth Corkery. She immigrated to New York and met her soul mate at an Irish dance where they put down their roots.

She lived in Riverdale for more than 30 years, where she and Michael raised their family and were active participants in the religious life of St. Margaret of Cortona church and school, and the civic and community life of Riverdale. Their lives together were ones of beauty and love.

She will always be remembered for her strength and love for her family. Her beautiful smile, wavy silver hair, wonderful sense of humor, sweet brogue, and her love of cooking will always remain in our hearts.

She leaves behind her beloved husband of 61 years, Michael Regan, and her four children: Mary, Kathy (Michael), Finbar (Denise) and Eileen (Jonathan) Regan. She was loving grandmother to her eight beautiful grandchildren: Christopher, Alyssa, Katrina, Taylor, Shane, Aidan, Keira and Maeve.
