Madeline “Maddie” Sylvia Paperno

Madeline “Maddie” Sylvia Paperno - Rochester, NY - Rochester Cremation

Madeline “Maddie” Sylvia Paperno, nee Leef, died January 12, 2021 at age 85.  Survived by her daughters Jill Paperno (Les Scinta) and Karen Miller (Seth Miller), her son Mark Paperno  (Miriam Nunberg), her grandchildren Sophie, Asa, Alex, Toby and Isaiah, her brother Robert Leef and sister-in-law Joanne Leef, her sister-in-law Phyllis Paperno and nieces Cathy Leef Martin and Lizzy Leef Jacobson.

Maddie loved dancing, travel, shopping, adventure, and time spent near the ocean and bay.  The family thanks the staff at St. John’s, especially Terri, Ruth and Shayna.

Due to COVID-19, although we appreciate the kind wishes of friends, there will be a private service held remotely.  Maddie contracted COVID-19 in the last few weeks.  If you wish to remember her, one way is to make a donation in her name to oceanconservancy.org or your local food pantry.  Another way to remember her is to wear your mask.

    It’s so hard to lose a parent under any circumstances. My thoughts are with you and your family. Even though you can’t have a traditional shiva at this time, I hope that you find comfort with your loved ones.
