She was a woman of faith and adored the Blessed Virgin Mother. She loved her Italian heritage and traditions. She was a very talented, creative and amazing seamstress. Give her fabric and a sewing machine and she could fix or create anything. She worked for Drazen's, Regina's Furs and Boscov's throughout her career. She enjoyed her walks around the neighborhood, crossword puzzles and spending time with her precious grandchildren. She was a very proud and elegant woman, a compassionate friend, a devoted wife, loving and caring mother and a nurturing and proud nonna. She was a member of St. Mary of the Assumption Church and the Women's Abruzzese Club. She will be truly missed and not a day will go by that we will not think of her and treasure the great memories and moments we shared. WE ALL LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU! Thank you for everything! Ti vogliamo molto, molto bene.
