Kay came to the U.S. from Italy at 7 years old and grew up in Binghamton. She eventually retired from Ozalid Corporation and the Bon-Ton. After retirement she worked for many years selflessly delivering meals on wheels in the community to "old people". "Nonni" truly loved spending time with her entire family including her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We have wonderful memories of Sunday dinner, baking bread, bowling, shopping and going to the park, as well as canning tomatoes and pears with her. She always had a kind word, a smile and brought joy through her infectious laugh to all she met. She took great pride in the roses she grew at her home. She was always smiling and felt "you gotta look good", and she did! She was and will always be remembered as a great soul. Funeral services will be conducted Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 8:45AM from the James V. DeMarco & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango Street, Port Dickinson and continue at 9:30AM in St. Mary of the Assumption Church where a Funeral Mass will be offered. Entombment will follow in Calvary Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to call at the DeMarco & Son Funeral Home Monday from 4 -7PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Kay's name to Broome County Meals on Wheels, 85 Walnut Street, Binghamton, NY 13905.
