On June 14, 2019, we lost a dear friend, loving wife, amazing mother, NKBA Manhattan colleague & an incredible person, Merita Haxhaj-Kelmendi.
Merita was an integral part of the Gurri Design & Remodel company from its beginning days to the latest marketing of the company. A naturalized U.S. citizen, Merita was born in Plave, Montenegro, and resided in Prishtina, Kosovo. In 1993 she moved to Brooklyn, NY, met her future husband Sami Kelmendi and raised three beautiful children. Eventually the Gurri company moved to Manhattan with an office in the A&D building on East 58th Street.
At 49-years-old, Marita left us and this world on June 14, at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan from complications of stomach cancer.
