JUDITH ANN PALMIERI, 73, of Jensen Beach, FL, a devoted wife, caring mother, loving sister, and treasured grandmother, entered heaven on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. She was surrounded by her family at the time of her passing. There are no explanations as to her untimely passing, except that she was called to the Kingdom of God. Judith served the Lord throughout her life and through her actions. She was a Eucharistic minister, a leader of the Catholic Daughters, prepared and served meals for her church's food kitchen, and knitted blankets for the less fortunate. Judith touched and inspired everyone that came into contact with her. She had the heart of a saint and the devotion of a warrior. The love, warmth, and gentleness that she showered upon her family will inspire for generations to come. It is her legacy. Judith's husband, Angelo Palmieri, fought a courageous fight to lengthen her time with her family. His unselfish love and everlasting devotion serves as a reminder of what marriage means. Their love for each other was unparallel. Judith is survived by her sons, Angelo II, and his wife Susan of Jensen Beach, Anthony, and his wife Lynn of Jensen Beach; her grandchildren, Christine Segedin, and her husband, Dan, Angelica, Angelo III, Hunter, and Zane, all of Jensen Beach; her brother, Harold Avallone, of Port Saint Lucie; and beloved dog, Honeybell. The Palmieri family and friends gives thanks to God for the gift of Judith Palmieri. Visitation will be held at Aycock Funeral Home in Jensen Beach from 4pm-7pm on February 14; a funeral mass at Holy Family Catholic Church in Port Saint Lucie at 10 am on February 15, and a procession to All Saints Cemetery in Jensen Beach thereafter.
