Cherished and devoted daughter of the late Peppino Bennardo and Rosaria Zagordo. Very special sister of Rosa Zagordo (Lino) and Anna Coccimiglio (Paolino).

Sister-in-law of Francesca (Pasquala), Geniale, Fortunato, Santo (Lina), late Alfredo (Lina), Nella (Giuseppe), Maurino (Maria) and Pina (Franko).

Ida will be missed by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She will always be remembered by her unconditional love and courage to her husband and children. She was always known to put others first, always worrying about others. Her heart spoke volumes and was always recognized for it. She was never selfish and always loved cooking for her family and friends. We are thankful for the many hours she dedicated her time to us.

Memorial donations to the SAH Cancer Care Fund would be appreciated by the family. The family would like to thank everyone who has touched Ida’s life in any way. She is now reunited in heaven with family and is no longer in pain.

Always in our hearts.
Our new guardian angel.
