Brie Redmond, formerly of Westhampton Beach, died March 21, 2017, after battling cystic fibrosis for 33 years.
Born on December 13, 1983, she was a 2002 graduate of Westhampton Beach High School, excelling in computer skills, sign language, and art. She loved to write, draw, and all kinds of music and dance. She was also a member of the Wildwood Bowling League.
There was something about her and her personality that touched everyone she met, survivors said. She was very strong-willed, no matter what or how she was feeling, she put others before herself. She fought to the very end and she would never give up the fight. She wore boxing gloves around her neck as a symbol of her fight. Her personal motto was live, laugh, love. “Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away,” she often said.
She is survived by her mother, Regina Najdzion Redmond; her father, Brian Redmond; and grandparents, Zenon and Lucy Najdzion; a half-brother, Brian Redmond; many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends; and her fiancé, Andrew Conforti and his family.
