Rendina Funeral Chapel held an open house for the community on Thursday evening. Taylor Wise and her committee made up of Greg Schafer, Marcia Ochoa, Barbara Fedorchak, Michelle Hanrahan, Carrie Evans, Teresa Dille, Mike Poweska and Kathy Chepela had the funeral home looking wonderful. A delicious array of authentic Spanish food was provided by Carlos Rivero, owner of Don Quijote restaurant in Valparaiso and his team along with a guitarist who provided soothing background music.
The parking lot was full and the building was filled with laughter and good fellowship as area residents and invited guests got a good look-see of the newly remodeled funeral home.
Although Tony officially retired from Rendina Funeral Home, he continues to help out and teach the newer generation the Rendina way of serving families. Calumet Park is proud to accept the passing of the baton and vows to serve “Tony’s families” as he and his family have since 1961.
