Obituary

Randi Hertz Suriano, 64, passed away at JFK Hospital in Edison, NJ on Saturday, April 25, 2020.

Randi was born in Atlantic City, NJ on October 29, 1955. She attended Atlantic City High School, graduating in 1974, and then attended Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey-New Brunswick, earning a BA degree in Communication.

Randi worked for 30 years at Willis Towers Watson. She mainly served as marketing support across multiple lines of business and did so with great pride and a "can do" attitude. Her coworkers would routinely stop by her desk for help or just to say hi.

Starting in the mid 1980's, Randi became very involved in the size acceptance movement and became an advocate for people facing fat discrimination. She led many workshops at NAAFA conventions, and enjoyed the social aspect of NAAFA and similar organizations - dances, pool parties, movie nights, hayrides, get togethers, etc. She became a mentor to many people.

Gregarious and outgoing, Randi's thoughtfulness, intelligence, wit, humor and kindness led her to have many friends. Time spent with Randi was never boring. She touched many people and they all have their own special story of time spent with her. She was a giving person and took extra time to make people feel special.

Randi grew up in Margate, NJ, near the ocean, and that love of the ocean never left her. Her favorite place to vacation was in Maine -- she loved the rocky coast and she loved LOBSTER. For many years, she enjoyed spring and fall trips to MA and ME with her friend, Linda.

Randi loved to try new foods and was actively involved with the Trader Joe group on Facebook. She liked to try out new restaurants. She took amazing photographs, liked to read, hang out with friends, and watch movies. Her favorite TV show was Schitt's Creek, which she described as a treasure and an absolute gift to the world. She was creative, a good writer and enjoyed various crafts.

What most people want out of their life is to make a difference. Randi succeeded because she certainly made a difference in many people’s lives.

Randi will be greatly missed by, her sister Marcy ,nephews Benjy (Inna) and Danny, niece Miriam(David), great nephews, cousins, and her many, many friends.

Randi was an integral part of my circle of friends back at RU circa 1975 - 78. She loved being with people and we loved having her entertain us with her wit and kind gestures. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I will miss our early morning conversations in the office. Sometimes it was only a hello but most often it was a conversation about almost anything, either at your desk or in the kitchen. Movies, TV shows, boyfriends (yours), kids (mine), our mutual age and what came with that. You introduced me to the Trader Joe's group and quite often we would run into each other on our Sunday morning TJ's shopping trips. You would be there with your list, studying everything, as I breezed through the store. That Facebook page will never be the same without you. My sympathy to your family, friends and everyone who loved you. I will miss you.

Although it’s been about 20 years since we shared a deep bond of friendship, Randi was such an integral part of my life for at least a decade. She always opened her home to me, and I would stay in the extra bedroom upstairs, near the bookcase with the Stephen King paperbacks, for days or a week or more at a time.

At the dawn of our friendship – less than nine months after I met her – Randi threw a 30th birthday celebration for me. The theme? “Exotic Foods of the East (Coast).” This fifth generation Californian didn’t understand White Castle or ziti or egg creams. She opened the door to a wealth (sometimes questionable) culinary delights.

Her indecisiveness at the grocery store would fray my nerves, when what I thought would be a 20-minute dash turned into a 90-minute marathon. But her generosity of spirit was ever present.

She was such an integral part of NAAFA, and gave selflessly of her time and talent. Her writing helped activate people and draw people to our cause (and our conventions).

When we went to her dad’s house, she took me to the Atlantic City Boardwalk, where I got genuine salt water taffy. Then she patiently drove me around so that I could “collect” Monopoly street color groups.

I so appreciate the friendship we shared and the laughter and good times we had.

I knew Randi from fat acceptance groups. She worked with NAAFA for many years and was active in organizing and promoting social events in New Jersey. i attended several, and kept up an online correspondence with her for a long time. She was always funny, encouraging to others, and very well organized. I have not talked to her for a while, as the groups we attended together have dissolved. She was an amazing woman and when I found out of her departing, it was a great loss to me. Rest in peace, Randi. You were the best.
