Obituary for Serena Lafaun Fedderman

“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (21: 4)

Serena Lafaun Fedderman was born on September 29, 1949 in Wattsville, Virginia to the late Martin Luther Fedderman and Louise Broughton Fedderman. She fell asleep in death on October 25, 2023 at St. Francis Medical Center in Midlothian, Virginia.

At an early age, Serena attended Wattsville School until her disabilities prevented her from completing her formal education. Thereafter, she spent most of her time at home where her family, especially her steady stream of nieces and nephews, enjoyed her smile, laughter and her way with words!

In the early 1980s, Serena began attending the Vocational Center, also known as Day Support, which is operated by the Eastern Shore Community Services Board in Exmore, Virginia. Later in April of 2022, she and her younger brother, Emmery, relocated to Midlothian, Virginia.

Serena loved dancing, pocketbooks, lipstick, nail polish, drinking coffee, looking pretty, getting her hair curled, eating Hardee’s fried chicken, listening to Aretha Franklin, and watching reruns of I Love Lucy on TV. Her family and friends will truly miss this “Special Lady” and look forward to seeing her again, healthy with no disabilities, in the resurrection.

She leaves to cherish her memories: sisters, Stephannie (William) Crutchfield, of Chester, VA and Devinnity (Gregory) Waters of Wattsville, VA; brothers, Michael Fedderman of NJ and Emmery Fedderman of Midlothian, VA; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many, many friends.
