Agata De Riggi Obituary
August 14, 1926 - February 27, 2016 Beloved wife, mother and Nonni. Agata, newlywed in 1949, came straight to Los Angeles from Cicciano, Italy, a small town near Naples. An amazing cook and hostess, she warmly welcomed all to enjoy her delicious cannelloni, calamari, biscotti and limoncello. Using her knitting talent from her youth, she made a career teaching students, many of whom became life-long friends, to knit and crochet. Active in the Italian-American community for many years, she raised funds for Villa Scalabrini through volunteer work with The Patrons of Italian Culture. Pre-deceased by her husband of 47 years in 1996, she is survived by son, Tony (Margie) daughter, Carol (Fred) and grandchildren Alana, Maria (John), Mia (Nate) and Tony. She was devoted to and loved by her grandchildren, who will greatly miss her. Donations in her name may be made to Villa Scalabrini. Funeral to be held at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, on Monday, March 7 at 3 pm.
