Randi L. Haberli
Teacher, Childcare Giver

Randi L. Haberli (nee Holm) of Hankins, NY, died Thursday, April 29, 2010.
Devoted mother of daughter Ryann Haberli, her partner Brian Biro of Corning, NY, and son Brad Michael Haberli of Jeffersonville, NY.

Randi was an elementary school teacher before having children. She then became involved with nursery school and daycare facilities, working as a teacher and director. In later years, as her children grew older, she took care of family and friends’ children in private settings. Her love and devotion to children was her life. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Even with her disability later in life, she enjoyed life to the fullest. We will miss her beautiful smile, laughter, and wonderful sense of humor.
