Think of the Westchester suburbs and you will likely think of natural beauty. You will also likely think of intact families with a mother, a father, and a couple of children, living in a good school district. Perhaps, if you're older, you and your spouse were enjoying being empty nesters and you downsized to a townhouse. Or perhaps you are growing older in place, living for decades in the large home where you raised your children. In any of these living situations, now that you are a widow, you probably feel "different" from others, more isolated and alone.
While many women have long established friendships and family, they quickly discover that widowhood creates a different kind of sisterhood that can be understood only by those you have gone through it, or are currently going through it.
This is where the W Connection's Mid-Westchester chapter comes in. Members of this chapter will know deeply what you're experiencing and what you're talking about. Through the W Connection, you will find a small community of widows who are learning to adjust to living in a suburban setting without their life partners. We invite you to join us.
