Rosina Minniti Izzo passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at Greenwich Hospital on March 26, 2021, days after celebrating her 91st birthday.

A lifelong resident of Rye, Tina, as she was called, was born in Port Chester on March 23, 1930, the daughter of Joseph F. and Santa (Surace) Minniti. As the eldest daughter in a family of ten children, she helped raise her younger siblings, learning at an early age the rewards of caring for others.

She attended Milton School and, in 1948, graduated from Rye High School, where she was a Varsity cheerleader. She went on to earn a degree from Berkeley College in White Plains.

She met the love of her life, Michael J. Izzo, while they were both employed by the Rye Trust Company on Purchase Street. They were married in 1954.

In addition to spending many years as a homemaker and working mother, Mrs. Izzo worked as an office manager for several brokerage firms in the Rye area, and, later, as an assistant to her brother, Joe Minniti, at his law practice.

A lifelong Yankee fan and an avid golfer, Mrs. Izzo loved playing golf at Rye Golf Club in the summer and Heritage Ridge in Hobe Sound, Florida, where they spent their winters after her husband retired.

“Tina took great joy in preparing traditional Italian dishes and was happiest when sharing a meal and creating memories around the dining room table,” said her family. 

She was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Mike Izzo, in 2006. She will be greatly missed by her three loving children, Cynthia Gazouleas (John) of Sugar Land, Texas, Michael Izzo, and Richard Izzo, both of Rye, and her cherished grandchildren, Stephen and Michael Gazouleas, and Madeleine, Sophia, and Nicolas Izzo. She is also survived by her sisters, Marcia, Greenbaum, Patricia Grubbs, and Joanne Minniti. Her brothers, Dom, Joe, and Fred Minniti, and sisters, Polly Mertz and Norma Chiarappa, predeceased her.

Funeral and burial services were private. Contributions in Tina Izzo’s memory may be made to the Autism Society of America
