Shirley Ruth Ferraro, 95, of Sleepy Hollow, formerly of Yonkers, NY, passed away at White Plains hospital on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

Shirley was born on April 11, 1927 to Alma and Walter Kuss in Yonkers, NY.  She was the oldest of three siblings: Edna Turchiano, and Arthur Kuss.  She graduated from Commerce H.S. and became a hair beautician.

She married John Ferraro on August 15, 1957 at St. John’s Church in Yonkers.  They produced three children: John, Joan and Arthur Ferraro.

After moving to Sleepy Hollow NY in 1981, Shirley became a school crossing guard, where she maintained the school children’s safety for 21 years, before retiring in 2002.

Shirley was a kind, giving, gentle, endlessly optimistic woman, whose presence will be greatly missed by her family, and all who have known her.

In addition to her 3 children, she is survived by her grandchildren Emily and Alex Ferraro, her daughter-in-law Renee and her daughter Kayla and her nephews Joseph and Paul Ferraro and her niece Susan Rawson. She was predeceased by her husband John and her daughter-in-law Ellen Ferraro.
