Milani, Margherita

Margherita Milani, formerly of the Bronx, NY, entered heaven on Sunday, July 7, 2013, joining her beloved husband, Angiolino, her sister Alice, brother Pete and son-in-law Jerry. She was 83 years old.

Born on October 8, 1929 in Turnolo, Italy, she was the third of six children. On July 16, 1950, she married her childhood sweetheart, Angiolino who predeceased her on May 15, 1997. She is survived by her son Bruno Milani and his wife Patricia, of Tappan, NY; son Michael Milani and his wife Martha, of Newburgh, NY and her daughter, Janet Bierfeldt of Wappingers Falls, NY. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Michael and his wife Felice, Christopher, Nicholas and his wife Michelle, Adrienne, Steven, Kristen, Mark, Thomas (T.J.) and Kevin and welcomed them all. In addition, she was recently blessed with a great-granddaughter, Olivia Milani, born on July 5, 2013.

Margherita was diligent and hard-working in every task she undertook, working for over twenty-five years as a seamstress at Sak's Fifth Avenue, but her greatest love and pride was her family. She will affectionately be remembered for her caring spirit, wonderful stories, quirky antics, superb Italian cooking and amazing sewing talents; often spending countless hours creating baby bassinets and Halloween costumes, that were handed down from one grandchild to the next. Through the years, she enjoyed many wonderful vacations in Disney World, which brought tremendous joy and lasting memories.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 10th at the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church in Tappan, NY. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, July 9th, from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. at the Moritz Funeral Home in Tappan, NY. Burial will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, NY.
