1928 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
SERVODIDIO, LORETTA J. Loretta J. Servodidio passed away on November 27, 2016, at age 88. Loretta was a retired guidance counselor at John Jay Middle School and had also worked as an English teacher during her long, 30-year career in education. Loretta helped literally hundreds of students find their way to college or other post-secondary education. She also counseled many students as they acclimated to the adolescent world of high school. Loretta was a graduate of Good Counsel College and completed all course work for her Master’s Degree in education from Fordham University. Loretta taught and counseled at several schools, including John Jay High School, Westlake Middle School, and Sts. Peter & Paul School. Loretta worked her way through college holding several positions in various businesses. After her retirement, she began a second career as an administrative assistant, working in her brother’s law office, dealing with clients and working at word processing. Loretta enjoyed attending seminars that related to her work and that related to helping children and adolescents. She was so well-liked by her former students that they invited her to class reunions for many years after she retired. Her stern “teacher’s look” was tempered by a genuine and compassionate interest in her students. She was a caregiver for several family members who predeceased her, including her parents, Pasquale and Caterina, and her brothers John and Pasquale. She always liked to give unusual Christmas gifts to family members. Loretta had been active in her church as a teenager, taking part in religious processions and representing various religious figures and her church involvement continued throughout her life as a member of Church of the Assumption in Tuckahoe. She enjoyed her beach house in Old Saybrook for over 32 years and often invited her family and friends to spend time there with her. Loretta is survived by her remaining brothers and sisters and many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews and she was sincerely interested in the lives of her younger relatives. A gathering will be held at Westchester Funeral Home, Tuckahoe on Wednesday, November 30, between the hours of 2 PM to 4 PM and 7 PM to 9 PM, followed on Thursday, December 1, with a Mass of Christian burial that will be celebrated at the Church of the Assumption, Tuckahoe at 9:30 AM.
