Christina J. (Rando) Russo of Waltham & Weston, youngest daughter of the late Philip Rando and his wife, the late Caterina (Difina), entered into eternal rest on Sunday, December 23, 2018, at her home in Waltham, among family and friends, after a brief illness.

Beloved wife of the late Joseph R. Russo, devoted mother to Donna R. (Russo) Hayes and her husband Malcolm (“Mac”) of Waltham and Weston, loving grandmother of Seth R. Hayes and his wife Elizabeth (Clancy) of Weymouth, Ryan C. Hayes and his wife Julie (Lomartire) of Bellingham.
She also leaves her treasured great-grandchildren, Violet, Caleigh, Nicolette, Dylan and Jacob.
Christina was predeceased by her siblings, John S. Rando (Gloucester), Rose (Rando) Cappadona, Katherine (Rando) Tortola, Marian (Rando) Rando and Bartolo Rando, who died as a young child. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

She will be remembered fondly by associates and friends from the garment mill in Waltham, the Wal-Lex Recreation Center (Waltham), the Stigmatine Retreat House (Waltham), volunteers from Our Lady of Comforter of the Afflicted parish (Waltham), the members and staff of the Waltham YMCA, as well as neighbors at the Brook School Apartments and members of the Council on Aging in Weston.

Christina was devoted member of both Our Lady’s (Waltham) and Saint Julia’s (Weston) parishes. She was an accomplished bowler, ping-pong player and artist. Later in life, she resumed her education to achieve both a high school diploma (Waltham High School) and an Associates degree (Childhood Education) from Middlesex Community College. She also completed several, continuing education courses at Regis College (Weston). Christina traveled extensively as a Tour Leader for McKenzie Travel (Waltham) and Durgan Travel (Stoneham), in affiliation with the Stigmatine Retreat House.

I was saddened to hear of Christina's passing. I got to know her when she and Cecilia attended the Sunday morning children's mass at St. Julia's in Weston. She was always so full of life and joy. We will cherish the statue of Mary she donated to the church this year. Rest in peace, Christina. Lynne Lazaro

I sadly found out about Chris's death yesterday when I went to the Gentle Yoga class at the Y. We have missed her presence since Thanksgiving. She was always so witty and positive with her remarks at the beginning of the class. You sensed her desire to challenge herself to be her best. I gave her a few lifts after class down to the Wallex Plaza or CVS where she would do errands and get her cup of coffee before getting her RIDE back to Weston. Although it's a short ride, she told me a lot about her family and life growing up in Waltham, but was also so interested in hearing about my family, too. She was a remarkable woman and there will be many broken hearts at the Y. Pat Clancy
