Gloria Randazzo Enjoys 100th Birthday With Family and Care Team Members
OAKLAND, N.J. (April 11, 2023) — Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center honored their newest centenarian resident, Gloria Randazzo, with a birthday celebration. The New York City native recently celebrated her milestone 100th year with family and care team members at the Oakland skilled nursing facility.
Randazzo graduated from Eastern Parkway Girls High School in June 1941. She held several secretarial positions with Prentice Hall and New York advertising companies, which she enjoyed very much. Her favorite job, however, was at Kallir, Phillips & Ross, a book and art publishing company, where she worked for 20 years, before retiring.
In 1948, Randazzo married her late husband, Ranny, at Saint Simon Stock Church in New York City. Together, they traveled to many different places, including Italy, Hawaii and Morocco. They also enjoyed spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans and attending family reunions.
One of Gloria’s and Ranny’s favorite things to do together was gardening. They took care of many flower and vegetable gardens at their home. Their neighbors were always treated to the prettiest flowers and tasty veggies. The couple also devoted much time to the Northwood Senior Citizen Organization, helping with events. Randazzo is a widow of 18 years, but she has many nieces and nephews who love and care for her deeply.
“What an honor to celebrate this beautiful birthday girl,” said Matthew Russo, Oakland’s administrator. “Our residents have such rich life stories to share, and inspire the entire team – Gloria is no exception.”
Located at 20 Breakneck Road in Oakland, Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. The facility maintains a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for quality measures.
