How did Gina Pellettiere Die?
The bus bringing Pellettiere of Massapequa, a single mother of a 2-year-old son and some of her students to their annual band camp in Pennsylvania collapsed on Thursday, September 21, 2023 killing them all.
The 8,500-person Long Island community of Farmingdale joined together in support of the children who were hurt and the adults who died in the bus accident. Beatrice Ferrari has also died in this accident.
She was a volunteer chaperone and the driving force behind the band program at Farmingdale High School. Ferrari’s grandson was not traveling on the bus that crashed. Ferrari’s son-in-law Daniel Aldieri said:
“She was a mom, a grandmother, my mother-in-law. She was like a mom to me. She was a pillar of the community. She loved band camp. She must have gone for 30 years. This was a trip, she looked forward to it every year. To have her go this way, it’s so sad. We’re all devastated, the whole family.”
“Her grandchildren, my boys, I have a senior who graduated last year and she was able to do band camp with him and I have another boy who was supposed to go this year, but they turned the buses around.”
Gianna Camisa wrote, “Heaven gained a beautiful angel.”
Diane Herbert posted, “We are all grieving the loss of two remarkable Dalers, Gina Pellettiere and Bea Ferrari, praying for friends and all families.”
