She was born February 25, 1928 in Minturno, Province of Latina , Italy. She was predeceased by her loving husband Salvatore. She is survived and will be dearly missed by her daughters, nieces and nephews, and friends.
First and foremost, Emilia loved her family. She was an extraordinary mother and human being, she was both beautiful on the inside and out. She was a wonderful strong, intelligent woman who was always welcoming with a big smile and kind words, and would have done anything within her power to help people. Her passions were cooking and gardening and she loved to share the bounty, you couldn’t leave her house empty handed. She will be remembered for her beautiful smile which lit up her face and the room she was in. Her Faith gave her strength and comfort especially during her illness, going to Mass filled her soul with joy. We would like to thank the pallliative care staff who cared for her In her last days at home before her death. Also a special thank you to Rachel who cared for her every Thursday for the past 2 years.
