This past Saturday, I was shocked to find out a longtime friend of mine and my family was diagnosed with Leukemia.
Sheila Knoesel is a longtime resident of Ardsley and is known to many in the community. Her husband, Ted, is famous in the community. He owned the Texaco station (the one by Sylvia Lane) and a busy towing business for many years, is currently the crossing guard at Concord Road school, and has been a member and ex-Chief of Ardsley Fire Department for over 50 years, best known now for his upkeep of Ardsley's 1928 Seagrave. Her son, T.J., is a County Police Officer and his wife Kiera is a Greenburgh Police Officer. And the rest of the family is extensive throughout this area and Brookfield, CT.
Sheila is a mother and grandmother, and is loved by many people. I hope those who can come out to give some blood will.The blood drive will be held at Ardsley's temporary firehouse on Saw Mill River Road (Route 9A) in Ardsley on Friday November 17th, from 4PM-8PM.
