Following in her family’s footsteps she attended and graduated from American Academy of McAllister Institute cum Laude in September 1981. Ms. Scamardella worked as a registered nurse while raising her son Robert. She also assisted her late father, Joseph Scamardella (Owner of the Scamardella Funeral Home, Inc.), during that same time frame.

The family tradition of providing personalized service for families in need continued with no interruption to the now 3rd generation family business.

Ms. Scamardella is the only female licensed funeral director, owner and manager on Staten Island.
