Bernadine A. Hizny (88) of Vestal, NY passed away peacefully December 2, 2023 at home surrounded by her children. She was born on April 9, 1935, in Plymouth, PA to the late Elmer and Anna Wanyo. She was predeceased by her husband, Bernard J. Hizny; her sister and brother in law, Marie and Edward Gensel; her infant brother, Johnnie Wanyo; and her mother and father in law, William and Mary Hizny. Bernadine graduated from Plymouth High School in 1953. She started her first job at Blue Cross Blue Shield and then went on to work for Social Security, both in Wilkes Barre, PA. While growing up in Plymouth, Bernadine and her friends never missed a dance on Sundays at Sans Souci Park. At one of these dances, she met her husband, Bernard. They married, moved to Vestal, NY and had five children. In addition to raising her children, Bernadine worked as an Administrative Assistant at Binghamton University until her retirement in 2000. Over the following years, she enjoyed her weekly lunches and Zoom meetings with her treasured "ladies group". Her most joyful moments were spent with her family during the holidays and special occasions. Every day was a blessing having her uplifting spirit with us. She is survived by her children, Susan Unger (Kevin), Endwell NY; Diane Stanton (Robert), Endicott, NY; Michael Hizny (Kimberly), Endicott NY; Jennifer O'Dell (Curt Wood), Jamestown, NY; and Cheryl Hizny, Vestal, NY. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, Daniel Unger (Anna), Rochester NY; Allison Unger, Rochester, NY; Courtney Stanton (Charlie Dutton), Endicott NY; Kassandra Domagala (Ryan), Endwell, NY; Colin Hizny, Smyrna, GA; David O'Dell, Rochester, NY; Emily O'Dell, Bemus Point, NY; and great granddaughter Jordyn Unger. Bernadine was a founding member of St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament Church in Vestal, NY where a private family funeral mass will be offered. Bernadine's children would like to thank Lourdes Hospice, Vestal, NY for their attention, kindness, and care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis TN and/or Lourdes Hospice, Vestal, NY.
