On May 5, 2023, Bernadette Petti, 88, resident of Rye, NY and Ridgefield, CT passed away after a battle
with cancer. She was born April 16, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY to the late Joseph and Norma Lynch. She was
raised in Brooklyn and graduated with a teaching degree from St. John’s College in Queens. She was an
avid sports enthusiast, METS fan, captain of her high school basketball team and later competitive tennis player, golfer and bowler. She had a deep patriotic love for this magnificent country that led her to open a gift store in Stamford, CT featuring gifts and jewelry made only in America by American craftsmen and artists.

She was the proud mother of four beloved children; Mary Ruddat and her husband Michael from West Hartford, CT, Sharon Camillo and her husband Anthony residents of Ridgefield, CT, Chris Petti of White Plains, NY, and David Petti and his wife Danni of Rye, NY. She considered her eleven grandchildren the greatest blessing of her life.

She was predeceased by her two brothers, James and Robert Lynch and her husband of 35 years Dr. Norman Petti.
