Marie Dunleavy, the wife of former councilman John Dunleavy and a founding member and ex-captain of the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps died suddenly at her home in Calverton Monday morning. She was 74 years old. A 46-year resident of Riverhead Town, Dunleavy was active in the local community. She was a past-president of Riverhead Lions Club, a Suffolk County EMS instructor, an American Heart Association CPR instructor and a Suffolk County Crisis Response Team volunteer. She was also a member of the St. Isidore’s Holy Name Society. “Marie, a past-president of Lions Club, was instrumental in all we do as a club,” Riverhead Lions Club president Robert Kozakiewicz said. “She worked closely with the Leo program and worked very hard on our eyeglass collection project. Marie was a dedicated volunteer and will be sorely missed.” She leaves behind her husband of nearly 53 years, their sons, John and Vincent, her daughter-in-law Elyssa and two young grandchildren, Emilie and Shane, whom she adored.
