On March 13, 2020, at the age of 68, Christine M. (Taddei) Radomsky passed on peacefully while surrounded by loved ones. Christine’s death followed a nine-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Christine was preceded in death by her father, Pasquale Taddei, and her mother, Lucy (Buccella) Taddei. Christine is survived by her husband John Radomsky of Virginia; her children, Stephen (Payton) Radomsky, Cynthia Radomsky and her partner Grant Harlan, and Stephanie (Carlos) Herrera all of Northern Virginia; her beloved grandsons, Max Herrera and Nathanael Radomsky; her siblings, Rita (Jack) Nagle, Sylvia (Richard) Conway, and Bernard (Rose Boldizar) Taddei all of Gallitzin, Pennsylvania; as well as many cousins, especially Anthony and Michael Taddei and Patrick Mulhern, nieces, and nephews; and very close family friends Mary (Bubzie) and Joe Malcotti. Christine’s legacy is etched in the hearts of the next generation of her family.
Christine treasured her memories of growing up in Gallitzin, Pennsylvania as part of a tight knit Italian-American community that valued the Catholic faith, family, hard work, and good cooking. Christine graduated from Penn Cambria High School in 1969, and went on to study occupational therapy at Mount Aloysius before marrying her husband of 44 years, John K. Radomsky. Together, they delighted in raising their three children and later in spoiling their two grandsons.
Christine can best be described as someone who freely and naturally cared for others. Her cooking will be sorely missed but not as much as her warm embrace and words of encouragement. Christine believed that a simple life is the best life, and she found joy in everyday blessings like tending to plants; enjoying the warm sunshine; and, listening to the songbirds. Even while she endured tremendous suffering at the end of her life, Christine always maintained her faith in God, her concern for others, and her positive outlook.
