Manooshag Seraydarian of Endicott
Manooshag Seraydarian was 101 years old when she peacefully passed away on May 25, 2023 at home. She was predeceased by her parents Osgan (he died after surgery as this was prior to the antibiotic era, when she was only 6 years old) and Siranoosh Artzerounian, her husband, Harry of 67 years, her sister and brother-in-law Berjouhi and Robert Studer, daughter- in-law Susan Greaves Seraydarian, many aunts, uncles and cousins. She is survived by two sons and a daughter-in-law Richard and Sheron Seraydarian, Rob Seraydarian and Deb Reiter, her brother and sister-in-law Jerry and Anne Kalayjian, granddaughters and spouses: Stephanie and Eddie Oddo, Sacha Seraydarian, Laura Hawk Seraydarian and Dechen Hawk. Great grandchildren Eddie and Alex Oddo as well as several nephews and nieces.
She was born in her home in Philadelphia and only spoke Armenian when she started school. Her family lost their home when her father died as most of their income was gone. In 1932 her family moved to Binghamton. She later met her future husband, Harry, at St. Gregory’s. She volunteered at the Endicott Girls Club of Western Broome from 1977 to 1992, Catholic Charities and Broome County RSVP. Two of the positions that she enjoyed were at Welcome Wagon and George E. Treyz. She was a homemaker (she never retired) who loved gardening (she was a member of the Endwell Garden Club), sewing, baking (especially Armenian deserts but she also made wonderful pies), cooking and furniture refinishing. She was always working to make a nice home for her family. She enjoyed vacations at the beach with her family. She passed on family history and was a member of St. Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Church where she was an active member of its Women’s Guild for several years. She traveled with her brother and sister to the street in Sivas-Sepastia, Armenia where their mother was born and lived until forced from her home at the beginning of the Armenian genocide.
