Aunt Lee was one of the most honest, funny, and genuine ladies I have had the pleasure of meeting. I enjoyed our visits and Frank conversations. Her smile and laugh would warm your heart. I will miss her greatly. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. She was such a special person, and I'm sure she will live forever in your hearts!

My sweet Aunt Lee... You have always been such a special lady in my life. You love deeply and always made us all feel like your own children. Some of my fondest family memories are with you. You will be missed but never forgotten. My heart goes out to LeeAnn, Donnie, Frankie, and your families as well as to my dad, Uncle Mario and Aunt Betty. We lost a great one but Heaven gained an angel. May God bless you and wrap His arms around you and bring you comfort and peace.
With love,
Ro Berger

We are so sorry for your loss. As we called her The Grandmom, ( she always smiled when we said that) what a truly amazing woman. She could make anyone laugh and had a smile that warmed your heart. We are lucky to know her and your family is blessed to have such a beautiful person in your lives for 89 years. We hope all your loving memories help you through this trying time. With our Love and Hugs. Debbie n Joe Gallone.

To a great Mother-in-Law.....Thank you for all the babysitting, for the holiday dinners (you were so good at) all the recipes you gave me (to keep Don happy of course!) and always being there when I needed you. No matter what was going on, you would always create laughter. I'll never forget you....
