Tiffany Marie Adams
June 28, 1985 – December 30, 2020
Tiffany Adams, 35, of New York, New York, passed away from cancer on December 30th 2020 at her Manhattan apartment. She was surrounded by her loving husband and family.
Tiffany was born in Newburgh, NY to Ralph and Kathleen Losinno. Attending Syracuse University, Tiffany graduated cum laude with a dual degree in Marketing and Retail Management. After college, she moved to New York City, where she worked at Bloomingdale’s in Buying and Planning for over ten years. She has been blissfully married to Raynor G. Adams III since August 11, 2012.
When Tiffany moved to New York she quickly fell in love with the city. She most enjoyed strolls in Central Park, attending Broadway shows and dining at new restaurants.
Throughout her career Tiffany had numerous successes and was a mentor to many. Some of her most notable career accomplishments included the successful revitalization of high-focus retail lines. Friends and family frequently turned to Tiffany for career and fashion advice. In her free time Tiffany loved to travel. She most enjoyed her time on the Amalfi Coast as well as trips to Turks and Caicos. An avid reader, Tiffany could be found on her travels most often reading a book on the beach during the day and watching the sunset in the evenings.
Tiffany was exemplary in all aspects of life. She had an infectious laugh, impeccable taste, and a generous and grateful spirit. She loved poetry, music, board games, houseplants, researching the family tree, water balloon fights with her nephews as well as bonding with her nieces and five god-children. Tiffany was an adored “Aunt T” as well as an amazing and supportive friend. She will be remembered with love and admiration by all who were fortunate to know her.
Tiffany is survived by her husband Raynor Adams III, her parents Ralph and Kathleen Losinno, Sister Adrienne Lodge, Brother-in-law Robert Lodge, Nephews Robert Lodge and Oliver Lodge, Brother Nicholas Losinno and many others.
The Memorial Service will be held at a later date, post pandemic.

I was blessed to have known Tiffany throughout her years at Syracuse and beyond - I was a professor of retail practice at the Whitman school and the faculty advisor for SIFE (now ENACTUS) and we became close.
What a fabulous young woman! So intelligent, positive and loving - a real joy to be around. She helped me out as a TA when she was a senior and we laughed together a lot in my office.
To all her family and friends, I can only imagine the depth of your loss - my thoughts are with you - please know she was a very special person with a huge heart who positively impacted my life in many ways. All my love to you all ... Amanda

My sister-in-law Tiffany. She was amazing in so many ways. From the beginning I always felt comfortable with her. Tiffany was short, like me, which meant that I could literally see eye-to-eye with her (a rare occurrence for me). I was always amazed at her strength, confidence and grace. I loved that she was short, smart, elegant and fiesty - all in one. She was so organized and composed, while I was the complete opposite. She loved the city, and I loved open spaces, but despite these differences we got along just great.
Tiffany was always up for an adventure: shopping, lunch, a show, or a walk in Central Park. She came on family vacations, played with the kids, made meals, helped with chores. She loved her family and always talked about her siblings and her hard working mom and dad. She would debate Ray on any topic and was always up for intellectual conversation. Someone as special as Tiffany has made such an incredible mark upon our lives and will never be forgotten.

My cousin Tiffany was such a beautiful breath of fresh air who lit up the room with her smile and effervescence. Although she became a beautiful woman, I still see her as a smiling little girl. I remember one time i needed young subjects to give intelligence tests to and Aunt Kathy let me test Tiffany. I had never seen anyone giggle through a test before (or since) but that’s just what she did. It’s such a fond memory. I worried that we were having such a good time that I wouldn’t get an accurate result; as it turned out, she was brilliant too! I take comfort she is in heaven with our family who have passed before, looking down on her loved ones with that adorable smile.

As a family, we are all saddened by Tiffany's passing. When we were younger, we talked about both being middle children. I was so excited and proud when Tiffany went to Syracuse University, I had graduated from there. She made a beautiful bride. During family gatherings she was always smiling, laughing and changing her clothes like four times...she was so brave and strong through her illness, staying positive and optimistic. She gave me good advice and supported me with medical/health decisions. Now she's with my dad, our uncle and grandparents, along with those who passed on the other side of her family. Her beauty was as much internal with a big heart as external, having a great fashion sense and beautiful smile. I love her and will miss her, once again, nothing will ever be the same....
