Jenny D’Amato (nee Comizio), lifelong resident of Yonkers, NY, entered into eternal life on September 8, 2019, at the age of 99. Jenny was born in Yonkers, NY on September 5, 1920. She was the daughter of the late Joseph & Caroline (Sarno) Comizio. Jenny was the oldest of eight siblings born into a loving Italian family. Jenny married Frank D’Amato on January 5, 1946 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Yonkers, NY. At one time, she was employed by the New York Telephone Co., the Yonkers Board of Education, and the Yonkers Public Library. With her own parents predeceasing her at an early age, Jenny will be remembered as the beloved matriarch of the entire Comizio family. Her compassion and dedication to family enabled her to raise many of her siblings well into adulthood. Of course, she will also be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother. In her children, Jenny instilled a strong sense of purpose, character, and love of family. Jenny’s family is forever grateful for the care and compassion she received from the staff at the New York State Veterans Home at Montrose, and in particular, the Catskills Unit. Jenny was cared for with great dignity, respect, and love.
