Together they had seven children: Francesco, Nicola, Giuseppe, Agnes, Maria, Antonio, and Domenica. In 1969 she bravely boarded a plane with her family for a new life in America, settling first in Brooklyn, NY where they owned a pizzeria in which she could be frequently found cooking alongside her family, and later moving upstate to New Paltz. She helped raise 8 grandchildren and lived to see 6 great-grandchildren. Years later, after the passing of her husband and her son Joe, she returned to Italy for a year, before finally settling in Florida, where she spent the remaining years of her life near her beloved family. She will be remembered with love for her healthy sense of humor, her delicious homemade sausage, pasta and Christmas desserts, and her constant and generous devotion to her family. A service is scheduled for 11 AM on Monday, June 7 at Nativity Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL. The funeral will be held in New Paltz, NY at _________ on __________.
