Concettina Dalcamo (Connie) Mannino Obituary
CONCETTINA (CONNIE) DALCAMO MANNINO December 8, 1919 - November 27, 2015 Resident of Campbell, CA Formerly of Corona, Ca Concettina (Connie) Dalcamo Mannino, 95, passed away peacefully on November 27, 2015, with family by her side in Campbell, CA. She was born on December 8, 1919 in Corona, Ca to the late Luy and Caroline Dalcamo. She was preceded in death by her 7 siblings: brothers Tony, Joseph, Frank and Jimmy Dalcamo and sisters Vincenza Muratore, Rose LaFata, and Josephine Cefalu. Connie lived most of her life in Corona, moving to northern California in April 2014 to be near her sister Josephine. She graduated with honors from Corona High School, and worked as a bookkeeper for the Water Company in Corona from 1943 as a private company, then for the City of Corona until her retirement in 1985. She was active in the Senior Center in Corona, and was recognized for her volunteer activities in the community. Connie can best be described as a 'perfectionist'. She approached everything she did with the expectation of doing it perfectly. She baked cookies that were as pleasing to look at as they were to eat, each one identical as though made by a machine. She was very creative and enjoyed participating in crafts, while always looking to try something new. Her knitting and crocheting were legendary. She knitted caps and scarves for soldiers serving during World War II. She also supplied her entire family with knitted slippers, scarves, caps, and blankets in addition to holiday ornaments and her other creations. Connie was a devout Catholic who lived her faith every day of her life. She not only practiced her faith by attending church daily, she lived her faith every day of her life. She was compassionate, kind, and generous, always willing to help those in need, especially her family. Connie is survived by her nieces Caroline Pope (George), Mary LaCorte (Frank), Karen Suter, Linda Cefalu (Joe), Susan Dalcamo, and Joanne Tucker (Chuck); her nephew Anthony Cefalu and several great and great-great nieces and nephews. Friends and family are invited to a graveside service on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at 1:00P.M. at the Corona Sunnyslope Cemetery, 1125 Rimpau Ave, Corona.
