Giuseppina (Zenga) Becker passed away peacefully, on Monday October 11, 2021, with her closest family by her side.
Known affectionately to her friends and family as “Pina,” Giuseppina was born in Naples, Italy, the daughter of prolific orchestra conductor, Professore Carlo and Carmela (Cassino) Zenga. She was predeceased by her beloved siblings, Salvatore and Antonietta Zenga.
She met the love of her life, the late Robert Stanley Becker, at a wedding, while he was serving in the Navy’s U.S. Sixth Fleet, stationed at the N.A.T.O Naval Base in Naples, Italy.
Giuseppina will be missed dearly by her children, Anthony Becker & wife Karoline, Bridgette Langevin & husband Steve, Charles Becker & Al Rauh, and Thomas Becker & wife Michelle; sisters, Anna (Zenga) Krinsky and Maria (Zenga) Adamski, brother, Benito Zenga & wife Eva; grandchildren, Timothy Lamora, Michelle Becker, Nicole Becker, Brenden, Shane, Brady, Kelsey Becker, Michael, Kristin and Andrew Langevin, Matthew, Valerie and Alyssa Becker; great-grandchildren, Vanessa, Alex and Aubree Menard, Kaleb, Noah and Kameron Lamora and Trevor Becker; and caretaker, Tara Maynard, who she considered a daughter.
She will be remembered for her love of Italy, her personality and forte volontà (strong will.) There was never a person she met who didn’t love her instantly.

To Tommy (aka Tomason) and the entire Becker family. Our deepest condolences on the passing of your mom. Many memories when Tomason came to our home on Page Blvd and his mom would call the house to see if Tomason was there. Always said her Tommy was a good boy. She truly loved her children and kept a close eye on them and what they did. She was sweet when she talked about her children. May the memories of you Mom help you all through this grief. Our love and prayers to Tomason and all the family. Joannie Wollmershauser, Jonathan Wollmershauser Mia Piazza, Michelle Martin and Mikala Magnolia.
