My husband and I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family for the passing of Lea.
Lea was kind, funny and deeply loved her family. She enjoyed visiting Villa Colombo's garden and sing her beloved old Italian songs which brought back beautiful memories for her.
I will always cherish the time I spent with Lea and she will hold a special place in my heart.
Rest in eternal peace sweet Lea.

I just wish to offer my and my family's condolences for the passing of my dear Aunt Lea. She was always warm and welcoming to one and all! I remember her always being on the phone for her daily chats with my mother and her sister, Anna. I last saw her at Villa Colombo before covid and she was alert and following the lively conversation with her 91-year old neighbor. My condolences and prayers to all of her children and extended family!
