McKenna Maye (2022)

It is with profound sadness that Matthew Maye and Lynn Freehill-Maye of Beacon announce the birth and death of their treasured daughter, McKenna Marie Maye, on March 16 at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor.

McKenna was delivered via emergency C-section within eight minutes by the incredible team at the hospital. She was full-term to the day but appeared to suffer the rare complication of placental abruption, her parents said.

She is survived by her brother, Wilson Maye; grandparents, Richard and Rosemary Maye of Niskayuna and Al and Jane Freehill of Madison, Wisconsin; aunts and uncles David Maye (Leah Hines) of Colonie, Leslie Freehill (Ethan Schwenker) of Madison; and Paul Freehill of St. Louis; and cousins Ben and Luke Schwenker of Madison.

A visitation will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday (March 25) at the Riverview Funeral Home by Halvey in Beacon, followed by a funeral service at 11 a.m. on Saturday (March 26) at St. John the Evangelist Church.
