She emigrated to the United States in 1970 with her husband and four young daughters. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Matriarch of the family, Sofia convinced her husband to leave the only country they knew to provide a better life for their young family. Arriving to the United States they settled in Elizabeth where she resided for the last 50 years. One of Sofia’s proudest moments is when she and her family became U.S. Citizens. Sofia loved to cook, watch the Price is Right, vacationing and going to Atlantic City to play the slots. She was the happiest when surrounded by her family, but her ultimate joy was caring for her grandchildren. She never missed any of their events. Sunday’s was her favorite day of the week, her entire family gathering around the dinner table for hours enjoying one of her delicious meals. Her specialties included homemade bread, meatballs, sausage, and her famous Sunday Sauce. As a young woman in Italy, Sofia worked alongside her sister in-law as a Seamstress were, they specialized in making wedding dresses. When her family came along, she left her job to become a homemaker. When moving to the United States her number one priority was caring for her family but she never lost her love of sewing. She took pride in making clothing for her children and close friends.
