Our Mom was a loving wife and mother, and a beloved Sitto to so many, who showed us all the true meaning of unconditional love. Sitto was a strong presence in all of our lives, and the glue that held our family together - she never missed a special occasion or event, big or small. She was warm, kind, generous and welcoming to everybody she encountered, and loved people as much as they loved her. Sitto led by example as a consummate peacemaker, was grounded in her strong faith, and put her family above all else. She loved her trips to the casino, family vacations, writing cards for birthdays and holidays, playing scratch-off tickets, and making her daily phone calls with her pinky finger just to check in with all of us, near and far. Our Mom and Sitto will be deeply missed, and her memory will live on in all of us forever.
