In memory of
May Kassem
May Kassem Cherished wife & mother, amazing hostess, proud grandmother May Kassem, of Roseland, NJ, died peacefully on Friday, October 16, 2020, just before noon. May was born in Beirut, Lebanon on July 30, 1947, and she moved with her family to the United States when she was one year old. She grew up in Danbury, CT where she developed a love of horseback riding in her teen years. She married Dr. Nadim Kassem and moved to NJ where they raised four children and where she lived until her death. May was an amazing hostess who set an outstanding table. She adored her grandchildren and encouraged all those she loved to hold hands throughout life. She died at the age of 73 after battling cancer for nearly four years. She left this world too soon, robbing us of her infectious smile, warm heart, kindness, grace and generosity. She was active until the last week of her life, entertaining just days before her death. May is survived by her children, Juhayna (husband Ashley), Nabil, Raniya (husband Charles), and Jawad; grandchildren, Laith, Kais and Leila; sister Samia (husband Moe with their children and grandchildren); brother Sammy; sister-in-law Ann (husband Bill with their children and grandchildren). She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and brother, Ghassan. Visitation will be Sunday from 9:30am - 11am at Shook-Farmer Funeral Home, Roseland, NJ, shookfarmer.com . A private burial to follow that will be broadcast via Zoom. Please contact the family for details. In lieu of flowers, donation links can be found at MayKassem.com
