Her greatest pleasure was being a devoted mother, grandmother, daughter, friend and neighbor.
She will be sadly missed by those who knew her. Gaziano is survived by her loving children Lisa Hodza Lewis and her husband Heath of Queens and Janine Hodza Schenck and her husband Michael and her cherished grandchildren Matthew and Kristine of Yorktown Heights.
