1914 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
Montagno Dolgizia "Della" Corrinne Montagno, passed away on March 28, 2017 at the age of 103 in Los Alamos, NM. She was born on March 6, 1914 in Brooklyn, New York to Beatrice Trocchia and Gennarro Quarto. She married Antonio M. Montagno on June 13, 1937 and he preceded her in death in 1980. Della was a longtime resident of Westerville and Fremont, Ohio. Della was generous, full of personality, and fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She loved cooking, reading, and spoiling her grandchildren and pets. She fueled herself primarily on caffeine and sugar; and always wore red lipstick, fabulous costume jewelry, and pantsuits. She loved roses, driving fast, taking care of others, and played a mean game of Rummy. Her joyful spirit, excessive consumption of coffee, daily walks, and love of pasta carried her to 103 wonderful years of life. Della is survived by her daughter, Margaret (Pete) Clay, Los Alamos, NM; grandchildren, William (Jenny) Clay, Hilary (Stephen) Wilson, Michelle (Lou) Montagno, Megan (Sam) Munafo; great-grandchildren, Giavanna, Devin, Dahlia, Nathan, and Nolan.
