Obituary for Lucy Seddon

In her 92nd year, loving and outstanding mother, grandmother , and great grandmother, Lucy Carrado Seddon passed away peacefully in her sleep, Friday, March 6th, 2020.
The daughter of the late Andrew and Mary Carrado, she was born in Long Island City, N.Y., June 17th, 1928, where she was also raised. An A student, attending St. Mary’s Catholic School, Lucy needed to drop out due to the illness, and eventual death of her mother to help raise her little sister Joan. She later got her High School diploma at the age of 65. Lucy married the late Harry L. Seddon Sr. a restaurant manager, and eventual owner of Norals Food Shop, in Long Island City. They built a home and raised 2 children, MaryLynn, and Harry Jr. in North Bellmore, N.Y.
Lucy stayed mentally and physically active only weeks before her passing, driving, cooking, traveling on bus trips with her many friends, especially at the Walkill Senior Center, where she was also an Officer. In addition, she was involved with the Mulberry House Senior Center, the Red Hatters, where she organized their monthly luncheons, and with her neighbors at the Seniors Way Apartments, where she had many happy moments playing bingo, and other functions.
Lucy was known for her great personality, sweetness, outspokenness, and very warm heart. In 1987, while living in Queens, N.Y., a school bus filled with 50 children and teachers became stuck in a snow storm.

In 1997, when her son, Harry suddenly became a single dad of his 2 year old son, Andrew. , she moved to Middletown, N.Y. to help them at this difficult time.
