A mother, Nona, Zia, and friend to many, Giuseppa will be missed by everyone who knew her. Giuseppa immigrated to the United States in 1951. She was instrumental in organizing and keeping the tradition of her family’s Saint George celebrations, the patron saint of Testaccio. She was also a member of the Italian Catholic Federation. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family. She loved attending all of her childrens’ and grandchildrens’ sports games and special events. She especially enjoyed family visits to Italy and their family home in Palm Desert. A beautiful woman who has graced this world with her kindness and love of family will never be forgotten. Her deep religious faith was an inspiration to us all. “La Madonna ti accompagna”. A special thank you to Liza her caregiver during her illness.
