Obituary

Florentine, Fortunata ”Nata” went to be with our Lord on October 28th at her home in EHT. She was surrounded by beauty and love as she passed over to her truly deserved reward. Nata influenced everyone she met with her beauty, grace, intelligence, strength, service and unconditional love. She led by example. She was born in Atlantic City Hospital on August 26th, 1928 to the late Katherine and Phillip Rando. She is predeceased by her beloved sisters Dominique “ Netta” Fruscio and Antonina ‘Nina” Rudolph and brother Anthony Rando. She was married for 63 years to the late Rudolph Florentine. She attended Atlantic City Public Schools and graduated from Atlantic City High School. While Nata would have loved to have been a nurse, circumstances deemed that impossible. She worked for the Bell Telephone Company for thirty years. There she made many precious lifelong friends. Her favorite time of the month was when they all got together to play BUNCO. Nata resided in Ventnor for 63 years. The ocean was her bliss. Tranquility was found sitting on her porch, looking at the bay. She loved Absecon Island. The Ventnor City Fireman not only assisted her numerous times but also made her son an honorary fireman. Nata respected and cherished them. She attended St. James Church but St. Michaels in Atlantic City was the parish of her heart. Fortunata is predeceased by her niece and nephew, Jay Florentine and Kathy Fruscio. She is survived by the love of her life her granddaughter, Jena Librizzi of Maple Shade NJ, her precious loving brother Ross Rando of Northfield, NJ; her brother-in-laws Paul Rudolph and Harry Fruscio; her children Joanne Florentine Kunik and husband Maitland Kunik of EHT, Susan Florentine of EHT and the joy of her life, Rudy Florentine of Northfield. Also, surviving are her beloved nieces and nephews, Paula and Jack Stryker of Ventnor, Patty and Tom Evan of Northfield, Carol and Greg Bell of Galloway, Robert and Susan Rando of Absecon, Phillip Rando of Blackwood, Kelly Thavisack of Absecon and Ray and Kathy Fruscio of Mays Landing. She treasured her many great-nieces and nephews and took great pride in all of their accomplishments.

We were saddened to hear of Nata's passing. I will always remember her for her sweet and kind disposition, and her concern for my own mother in her later years. My mother was Rudy's cousin, Kathleen Florentine Sheehan. May Nata's memory be with her family forever!

Nata’s husband Rudy was first cousin of my mother, Kathleen Florentine Sheehan. Nata was a supervisor at the phone company when I started working there as a high school student-trainee. I remember how kind, gracious, and beautiful she was. She always had a kind word for me. Up until a few years ago we continued to exchange Christmas cards. I am sorry to hear of her passing, but rejoice that she is now with Jesus.

My beautiful Aunt Nata has now gone to her Heavenly reward along with her two beloved sisters. It is hard to express in words the honor it was to be her niece. She taught me so many life lessons and was such a mentor to me. Because of her I had a wonderful career as a Special Education teacher. I learned to think outside the box in solving medical and behavioral issues. She taught me that all lives have value and to treasure small steps of progress. Probably the most important lesson that she taught me was to persevere no matter how difficult obstacles may seem. Our family has lost its matriarch, but she will be forever with us in our love, values and life lessons…
