Together with her parents and siblings: Stella, Ann, Patricia, Sheila, Irene, Linda, Thomas and Christopher she moved to America and settled in Brooklyn New York in 1958. With a genuine, kind soul and a smile as bright as the sun, she touched all who knew her. She will forever be missed and loved. Love you for always, Honey, Mom and Mima!
