Obituary Condolences

April Carlotta (Warburg) Gagliano, lover of all animals large and small died in Concord, MA on March 9th, 2015 at the age of 95. April was born in Washington, D.C., grew- up in New York City, and later moved to Colombia, South America where her husband, Baltazar, was Director of the National Chorus. The family then moved to Rome, Italy, where she spent the next forty years until moving to Concord in 1996. She enjoyed her years abroad singing, taking part in casting for small parts in films shot in Rome, writing poetry, and hosting family and friends traveling through Europe. She was known for her beauty, style in dress and jewelry, and especially her intelligent non-conformity. She was a voracious reader of fiction and lived life on her own terms without hes itation. She never lost her self determination and quick irreverent sense of humor. April was the eldest daughter of James P. Warburg of the International Banking Family, and Kay Swift - a Tin Pan Alley songwriter and first woman to compose a Broadway musical, titled "Fine and Dandy." April leaves her son Guido and his wife, Helene of Acton, a daughter Francesca and her husband Allen of Vienna, Austria. She leaves her six grandchildren ; Shoana (Gagliano) Terra-Nova, James Gagliano, Daniel Gagliano, Alessia (Gagliano) Doss, Francesca Gagliano, Joseph Gagliano - and three great-grandchildren: David Terra-Nova and Katharine and Madeleine Gagliano. April was laid to rest in the Warburg Family Plot during a private family burial in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Tarrytown, New York. She will be dearly missed.
