Cynthia Lee Bates Serino, 60, of Pleasantville, NY passed away on December 12, 2019 surrounded by her family.

Cindy is survived by her husband Carmelo Serino, children Matthew, Andrew and Valerie, daughter-in-law Stephanie, mother Mary Ann Bates, brothers Wayne and Stuart Bates, and many loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, co-workers, and students. Cindy was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, teacher, and friend.

Raised in Brewster, she was the daughter of Mary Ann and Stuart Bates. While attending Brewster High School Cindy was also developing her love for cosmetology by studying to be a hair stylist at the local trade school. After graduation she was employed by Neiman Marcus as a hair dresser and participated in several haircutting competitions.

During these competitions she met one of the judges, Carmelo Serino, who turned out to be the love of her life. The pair married in May of 1981 and went on to open multiple hair salons named Xanadu. Cindy continued to share her love of the cosmetology industry as a dedicated teacher at Rockland BOCES.

Cindy’s greatest blessing in life was her three children, Matthew, Andrew, and Valerie. She was a selfless and devoted mother who always made family her top priority. She brought so much joy to her family and everyone she met with her fun-loving personality, love of dance, contagious laugh, and bright smile to go along with it. Her smile was always a source of inspiration, even when things got tough.

Catholicism was also a priority in Cindy’s life. She was a parishioner at Holy Innocents in Pleasantville and a founding member of the parish’s Cenacle group that is dedicated to praying the rosary at the homes of those in need. This embodied her as a person, always looking out for others and doing whatever she could to bring joy and peace into people’s hearts.

Visitation will be held at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home on Sunday, December 15th from 2:00 PM through 6:00 PM. Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 16th at Holy Innocents Parish at 9:30 AM. Cindy will be laid to rest at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, NY.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Cancer Research Institute.
