91, of Hackensack, formerly of Paramus, passed away on Sunday, May 12, 2019. As a teenager Rina was a talented singer and performed with Big Bands in the North Jersey area. She was asked to go on the road with the band but chose to remain in New Jersey where Rina met her husband to be, Andy. Andy had recently returned from duty in the Pacific after WWII. They married and settled in Paramus, NJ where Rina raised her four children. After 35 years as a homemaker, Rina started a new career as a customer service administrator at Sears. She also found time to volunteer at United Way in Paramus for several years. Rina was the guiding force, the heart of the family. The children would often come home from school to find mom singing and dancing. She will be remembered for that brilliant smile that lit up the room. Her gentle, caring way will remain with everyone who knew her.
