Peacefully on Thursday, June 3, 2004 at home. Predeceased by her loving husband Sam, son Joseph and her darling grandson Sammy. Beloved mother of Joyce, Millie (Frank), Sam (Joan), Julie, Debbie (Dario) and Mark (Kimmie). Much loved grandmother to Louie (Tina), Andrea (Robert), Dianne (Dave), Stephanie, Darryl, David and Danielle. Cherished great-grandmother to Ryan, Liam, Shea, Zana, Joanna, Karen, Matthew, Patrick, Kathleen and Nicole. Proud great-great-grandmother to Michael. Our love and sincere appreciation to her dear sister-in-law Ila for her love and devotion.

When a person touches your life in such a way that she remains a part of you, that is a life with love. Caring for Mom in her own home the past three years has been the greatest experience of our lives. Although emotionally difficult, it was a unanimous decision to care for her at home. During Mom?s decline in her mental and physical capacities, we became even closer to Mom than we ever thought possible. We learned more about reciprocal love than and other time in our lives. It was a long and difficult journey but the rewards were endless and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Our loss is greater for having lived with her love so long and so thoroughly. Thank you Remy and Maria for their caring and genuine concern.
