Serafina Randazzo, a resident of Tarrytown, died February 17, comfortably in her own home.
She was born and raised in the Bronx and moved to Tarrytown in 1962. She was a member of Transfiguration Church and was on their Parish Council and PTA. Fina had been a member of various committees including: Girl Scout Leader, Sleepy Hollow PTA, Neighborhood House Board, and a Phelps Memorial Hospital volunteer. She was also one of the original-founding members of the Columbiettes of St. Elmo Council of Tarrytown.
The 1970 Bi-Centennial of Tarrytown held great memories and joy as she and her family participated in many of the follies. In 1976, she was appointed Director of the Senior Citizen Nutrition Program at the Knights of Columbus. Fina’s first job in Tarrytown was for Sleepy Hollow High School BOCES. She then became a Real Estate Agent and worked for Nagel and Beck and Wheatley Realtors. Fina then got bitten by the travel bug and became a Travel Agent working for Tarry Travel, Miles Unlimited and finally ATC. She often said that one of the best times of her life was traveling the world on Pan Am.
Later in life Fina took up painting at the Neighborhood House and was an amateur yet impressive landscape artist. Her paintings along with all of her classmates were displayed at the Warner Library each year. Fina always embraced different cultures and was touched and honored to be chosen as an aide in the 2012 Tarrytown St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
