Emily Bodenheimer, a longtime North Haven resident, died at Eastern Long Island Hospital on Aug. 5 of cardiac arrest following hip surgery. Her age is not known; her sister, Arlene Ball Dempsey, said that “she never gave it out.”
Ms. Bodenheimer was born to Andrew and Emily Dunne Kauffield in Jamaica Estates, Queens. She moved to North Haven in the late ’70s and to Peconic Landing, the retirement home in Greenport, in 2002, spending the last few years at its nursing home, the Shores Care Center.
