How Did Gina Pellettiere Die?
On Thursday, September 21, 2023, the bus carrying Pellettiere of Massapequa, a single mother with a 2-year-old boy, and several of her pupils to their annual band camp in Pennsylvania crashed, killing everyone on board.
The 8,500-strong Farmingdale community on Long Island banded together to help the injured children and the adults who perished in the bus disaster. Furthermore, Beatrice Ferrari perished in this collision.
She was a volunteer chaperone and the brains behind Farmingdale High School’s band program. The bus that crashed wasn’t carrying Ferrari’s grandson. Daniel Aldieri, Ferrari’s son-in-law, 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.”
Diane Herbert posted:
“We are all grieving the loss of two remarkable Dalers, Gina Pellettiere and Bea Ferrari, praying for friends and all families.”
Greg Warno shared:
“There are no words to describe the profound loss of our beloved band Director, Gina Pellettiere, and beloved “Band Grandma“ Bea Ferrari.”
