Hazel M. Domiano Tacconelli of Old Forge and formerly of Vienna, Va., entered into eternal rest suddenly on Aug. 16, 2013. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 32 years, Dominic J. Tacconelli, in January of 1982.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was the last living member of her immediate family and, as such, was preceded in death by her parents, Matteo Rocco Domiano and Giovanina DeRosa Domiano; her sisters, Regina and Jeanette Domiano; and her brothers, Dominick, William, Joseph, Nicholas, Fred and Frank; and Martin Damiano.
She is survived by two sisters-in-law, Esther Domiano and Romayne Damiano, both of Old Forge; and several cherished nieces and nephews.
Hazel graduated from Old Forge schools and had a long and exciting career with the federal government in foreign service. When she retired, she relocated back to Old Forge to be closer to her family. She was a member of Prince of Peace Parish in Old Forge, life member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Military Order of the Purple Heart and supporter of many charitable organizations.
Hazel traveled the world extensively and was noted for her excellent cooking and baking. She was an accomplished cake decorator and candy maker and, in her spare time, she created elaborate needlepoint projects, sewed and pursued various home decorating crafts and projects. Hazel will be remembered always as a loving wife, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great-aunt and friend and will be missed by all who knew her.
