Anna DiLeva

Mar.18, 1915–Jan. 8, 2016

Surrounded by her children, our mother, Anna passed peacefully into the loving arms of our Lord on January 8, 2016. She was born in Ischia, Italy to Ferdinando Volino and Giovanna Mattera on March 18, 1915, one of eight children. She came to San Pedro, California in April, 1938 with her husband, Giovan Giuseppe DiLeva, where she resided for the last 78 years. They had four children, of whom she was very proud. She did not work outside the home but she was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and a wonderful homemaker. She was predeceased by her husband and by her son, Ferdinand. She is survived by her sons, Tony and John, her daughter Maria (Dennis) Lifton, her grandchildren Cathy, Joe and Robert DiLeva, Stephanie (Greg) Rivera, Lisa Lifton, and her great-granddaughter Olivia Rivera. Anna is also survived by her cousin Salvatore (Nicolina) Mattera, numerous nieces and nephews in San Pedro as well as in Ischia, Italy; Marseille, France; and Hamburg, Germany. We want to express our sincere appreciation to our brother John who took such loving care of our mother for the last eight years. A special thank you also to Rowena Doles, our mother's caregiver, who helped take care of her during the last months of her life. Viewing will be held on Wednesday, January 13th at McNerney's Mortuary from 4:00p.m. – 7:00p.m., with recitation of the Rosary to follow at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, January 14th at 10:30 a.m. at Mary Star of the Sea Church with entombment to follow at All Souls Cemetery, Long Beach.
