SURFSIDE BEACH—Regina Jaronczyk, 87, passed away May 26 at Embrace Hospice House.

Regina was born on May 6, 1932, in Brooklyn, New York, and was the daughter of the late William and Margaret Keating.

After spending most of their married life and raising six children in Uniondale, New York, Regina and Frank retired to Surfside Beach, fulfilling a dream of retiring to the beach.

She was very active with St. Michael Catholic Church, enjoyed daily water aerobics, crossword and jigsaw puzzles and played golf (and lunch) with a neighborhood ladies group.

She was a loving and devoted wife and best friend of Frank, beloved mother of Regina Esernio (George), Frank, Brian, William, Michael (Rose), and Kevin.

She was a loving Nana to Michael and Christa, loving sister to Anne, and sister-in-law to Bruce, John (Mary), and William (Betty).

A funeral Mass was held May 30 at St. Michael Catholic Church. Entombment followed at Hillcrest Cemetery Mausoleum.

Goldfinch Funeral Home, Beach Chapel, was in charge of the arrangements.
