Felice Mae (Paltrowitz) Spivack passed away on June 7, 2022 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was 66 years old.

Felice was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She studied art at Brooklyn College, after which time she met her former husband, David Spivack. The two were married for over 30 wonderful years and had two beloved children, Marla and Craig. The family enjoyed a life of travel and lived abroad for several years in Hong Kong and Japan before returning to the U.S. and relocating to Long Island in 1995. Their cherished pug named Pugsley joined their family that year, and Felice lovingly took care of him until his death in 2009. Felice and David amicably divorced in 2010, after which she spent her time growing her personal eBay business, exploring other satisfying work opportunities and thriving as an adored grandmother to her grandchildren, Mikayla and Jacob.

Felice is survived by her brother, Harris Paltrowitz and his wife Catherine Paltrowitz, her children Marla (Spivack) Wasser and Craig Spivack, son-in-law Tobias Wasser and daughter-in-law Kristy Wong, and her grandchildren Mikayla and Jacob Wasser.

My dearest cousin, I will miss you terribly. You’re bright smile and loving heart was the base for all you did in life, from your children and family, to you work and hobbies. I’m so sorry we didn’t get to have lunch together once more. May you be at peace now – hugs to Aunt Etta and Uncle Leon. Love you and will remember you always.

Felice was my first cousin on her father Leon’s side. We grew up together going to grandma Lena in Brooklyn and spending many overnights there.

We lost touch for several years but then got reacquainted when the family lived in Syosset and we were living very close by in Woodbury Long Island so we got to see them occasionally at their home.

I’m so happy that I reconnected with Felice a few years ago and was able to stay in touch with her the last several months. She raised such a beautiful family that I will continue to stay in touch with.

Rest in peace Felice. You were a wonderful and very knowledgeable person. It was always a pleasure to see you and talk with you about antiques. God Bless you.
