Randazzo, Jane Riddell
Jane Riddell Randazzo, a longtime resident of Torrance, California, passed away on September 4, 2009. Jane was born in Luverne, Minnesota, on July 11, 1932, and has resided in Torrance for the last 44 years. In addition to being a loving wife and homemaker, she was a very active member of the Seaside Elementary PTA in the Torrance Unified School District where she volunteered hundreds of hours tutoring children, assisting teachers with instructional activities, and working in the school's library. She was presented with the PTA Life Achievement Award in honor of her commitment to children. Jane later worked for many years as the Vice President for Pension/Profit Sharing Systems in Long Beach where she managed pension plans for numerous professionals. In her spare time, she enjoyed working in her garden, solving challenging crossword puzzles, reading, volunteering for political campaigns, and writing poetry. Jane will be remembered for her thoughtfulness and wisdom. She never failed to acknowledge the birthdays, anniversaries, and special events of the people she loved. Jane is survived by her husband, William Randazzo, and three daughters, Leslie Riddell, Doreen Means, and Carolyn Seaton. She was the proud grandmother of Stephanie Thomas, Thomas Means, Angela Means, Richard Thomas, and Lindsey Ballard, and she was delighted with the arrival of her five great grandchildren, Anthony and Matthew Thomas, Gregory and Samantha Means, and Matthew Kingsley. Her beloved first husband, John "Jack" Riddell, and her sister, Donna Schmidt, preceded her in death. The family will hold a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Jane's name to the Seaside Elementary PTA. Donations can be mailed to Carolyn Seaton c/o MBUSD, 325 S. Peck Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.
