Back to Abby's LifeWeb


From Michael Hartig '72: Abigail “Abby” Scheck passed away in February 2020 after a long battle with cancer. She was one of the “first women” who were admitted to Stuyvesant, and she was truly beloved by just about everyone in our class. She was one of the kindest, most compassionate and caring people that I ever knew, and she was always deeply involved in charitable work in our community and elsewhere. She was also cherished by her family from Montreal who all travelled to New York City for her funeral.

Abby's classmates have set up a scholarship fund with the Stuyvesant High School Alumni Association to honor her memory. Learn more about the Abigail Scheck Class of 1972 Memorial Endowed Scholarship here.
