Regina Ordmandy


Regina Miriam Ordmandy, 88, passed away peacefully Friday, Nov. 24, 2023, surrounded by her loving family at O’Connor Hospital of Delhi. 

Regina was born Aug. 30, 1935, in New York City and grew up in Franklin Square.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband, William Ordmandy, daughter Regina Marie Ordmandy, granddaughter Janine Ordmandy, brother John Carlsen and son-in-law Francis DiJiulio.

She is survived by her children William Ordmandy (Kathy), Gerard Ordmandy (Melissa), Donna DiJiulio (Darrell), Craig Ordmandy (Lisa), Elizabeth Wiggins (Paul) and Patrice Wright; her grandchildren Melissa Skinner (Mark), Dustin DiJiulio (Robi Anne), Ashley Crandall (Michael), Lindsay Barno (Andrew), Pam Mahon (Ryan), Scott Hutson (Lauren), Ryan Ordmandy (Ashten), Caitlin Moody (Trevor), Candace Craig (Joe), Sarah Franco (Brian) and Katherine Murdock, along with 21 great-grandchildren.

Regina was a devoted and active member of the Catholic church and the women’s auxiliary post 190 in Delhi.

She was an incredibly hard worker. She and her late husband, William, owned and operated Pioneer Trails Campground for over 40 years and operated Grandpa’s store after her father’s passing in 1977. Regina worked for the Countryside Care Center in Delhi until she retired and then spent some time as an aid at Delaware Academy Elementary school.

In her free time, she enjoyed playing bingo at the Walton Fire Department and the Delhi Legion. She was the biggest fan in the crowd for all of her family’s recreational events ranging from concerts to theater and sports, but most of all, she loved the holidays and baking and cooking for her family gatherings.

Regina loved to knit for her family and to donate craft items to various fundraisers and local hospitals.

Calling hours will be held Thursday, Nov. 30 from 5-8 p.m. at Hall & Peet Funeral Home in Delhi. A Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 1, at St. John the Baptist Church in Walton; burial at Hamden Cemetery will follow.

In lieu of flowers, her family requests donations be made in her name to Tunnel to Towers Foundation:
