She learned to speak English and studied and passed the test to become a United States citizen of which made her very proud. Her joy in life was to cook and sew and she spent many happy days in her kitchen cooking delicious authentic Italian foods from scratch and sewing garments on her own sewing machine Many fond memories were made of her making ravioli by hand. They will be truly missed. Her two grandchildren Antonio and Gabriella were her beating heart and she loved to spend as much time as possible making them happy.
