She was kind and loving. She loved cooking and baking for her family and friends and their door was always open with a seat at the table. She was a true homemaker and crafter. She loved working with her hands, knitting, crocheting, and she could sew anything! Her dream was to live in Cape May, and they did. They built their dream home where they vacationed for many years and then lived for 25 beautiful years. Cape May will always be home for the family, having many wonderful memories together on the beach. Beloved wife of 64 years to the late Alfred "Al" Rando (2021). Devoted mother of Mark Rando, Marcy Rando and Kerri Gutierrez and her husband Jose. Loving grandmother of Joseph and Kyle. Dearest sister of Tommy DeFazio and his wife Kathy, Anna Vitolo and her husband Joey and the late Nancy Fatone.
