October 24, 2003

Vonda Mae Scardina, a former waitress who enjoyed entertaining family and friends, died Sunday at Millennium Health and Rehabilitation Center in Marley Neck of complications from surgery. The Crownsville resident was 80.

Born and raised in Buckhannon, W.Va., where she attended high school, Vonda Mae Lewis moved to Baltimore in the late 1940s to work as a waitress.

During nearly 40 years as a waitress, she worked at Haussner's Restaurant in Highlandtown, Club 4100 in Brooklyn Park, The Barn in Glen Burnie and the New Seagirt Inn in Riviera Beach. She was working at Dino's Restaurant in Glen Burnie when she retired in the early 1980s.

Mrs. Scardina was known for her football parties and crab feasts, family members said. She also enjoyed sewing, and was a member of Glen Burnie Chapter 1176 of Women of the Moose.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Glen Burnie Moose Lodge, 1911 Crain Highway.

Mrs. Scardina is survived by her husband of 47 years, George C. Scardina, a retired electrician; three sons, Randy Dean of Edgewood, Tony Dean of Harlem, Ga., and Larry Dean of Lewisburg, W.Va.; two daughters, Gina Scardina of Glen Burnie and Gussie Scardina of Crownsville; two sisters, Daisy Tousignant of Pensacola, Fla., and Lenna Sturm of Clarksburg, W.Va.; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
