Obituary for Nancy Platas

Nancy K. Brawner Platas (Age 67) of Pomona, N.Y Born April 20, 1952 - September 9, 2019, Nancy has been called home by Our Heavenly Father and welcomed with open arms to His Kingdom. She is survived by her husband Mark Platas and daughter Mariel. Her father, Howard Clifton Brawner and her three nieces Sally Sullivan Simpson; husband Scott, and children Taylor and Grace. Emery Sullivan O’Connor; husband Kevin, and son Aidan. Willy Sullivan Brown; husband Richard, and children Grady, Clark, Christian, Blake, and sisters-in-law Mimi Platas and Rejoice Israel. Nancy is predeceased by her son Kade, mother Ruth Ann Taylor Brawner, sister Linda Brawner Sullivan; brother-in-law Leonard Sullivan, mother-in-law Carole Platas, brother-in-law Victor Platas, and father-in-law Julio Platas. Nancy served as an Art teacher in Nyack Public schools for 20 years. She was an avid lover of the fine arts and created much of her own artwork in her spare time via drawing, reading, and writing. Nancy's love and passion for teaching Art was immeasurable, as was the love she shared with her husband and two children. Nancy found the undeniable beauty in all things. She lived in visions of all colors, shapes, sizes, designs, and patterns. Some of her favorite vacations were to the British Virgin Islands, which is where she had always hoped to retire to one day! Compassionate, determined, willful, intelligent, kind hearted and loving, is how she will forever be remembered.
A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Time and location will be announced.
Memorial contributions/donations can be made in remembrance to: United Hospice of Rockland 11 Stokum Lane New City, N.Y 10956
