Obituary of Katherine Bingo

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Katherine M. Bingo announce her passing. A beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother and remarkable individual, Kay departed this world on Friday, June 23, 2023, at the age of 86. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and enduring love that will forever resonate in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her.


Kay was a loving wife of over 65 years to Anthony Bingo, Sr. who preceded her in death. She is survived by daughters, Linda (David) Beauchemin and Sharon (Ric) Coffaro; son, Anthony Bingo, Jr. (Pam) and sister in-law and brother in-law, Noreen and Phil Mancini.  In addition, survivors include 9 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.


Kay was born in Rochester in 1936 to parents Virginia and Salvatore Mustardo.  The youngest of six children, she attended Madison High School on Epworth Street in southwest Rochester. There she met the love of her life and married her high school sweetheart, Anthony Bingo, Sr. in 1956. Together they raised their children and traveled the world including trips to Italy and Spain. Another beloved adventure was when they took the entire family (all of their kids and families, 17 people in total) to Walt Disney World Resort. Their relationship was one of true commitment, kindness, acceptance and love. 


As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Kay was truly one of a kind. She will always be remembered for her love of life, passion for cooking and baking, and devotion to her children and grandchildren. Known for her excellent homemade sauce that was served at hundreds of family dinners and Christmas cookies that were so delicious they were featured in the Democrat and Chronicle, Kay always made holidays and celebrations truly memorable. Her commitment to decorations, gifts, fine details, but most importantly the way she selflessly and tirelessly worked to provide a memorable experience will never be forgotten. Her devotion to family knew no bounds.


We will be celebrating Kay’s life on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at 11:00 am with a mass at St. John of Rochester, 8 Wickford Way, Fairport, New York. Immediately following the service there will be a private ceremony at White Haven Memorial Park for immediate family members. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her name to Lollypop Farm, Humane Society of Greater Rochester.
