It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts to announce the peaceful passing of a precious wife, mother, nonna and bisnonna on Friday, July 16, 2021 at the age of 94. She is finally reunited with her beloved husband Antonio (2004)
She leaves behind her cherished daughter Maria and son-in law Anthony. Her two precious grandchildren whom she adored and will miss her deeply Anthony Jr. (Tara) and Andrew (Aleksandra). The best bisnonna to Mila, Nico and Leo.
We were all so very blessed and grateful to have had her in our lives for many years. She guided us through life with her compassion, wisdom, a strong faith and her unwavering love. One of her greatest joys and happiest moments is when we all gathered together as family.
She was an extraordinary woman who encountered life’s many challenges with great strength and dignity.

l’amore lascia un ricordo che nessuno po rubare.
