She was an avid seamstress and hairdresser during her work years. She will always be remembered as a happy, caring person. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend. thank you to all her caregivers the last months of her life. She resided in Sun Lakes, Banning and had a wonderful time doing her activities. Special thanks to Helene Kassman & Doris Thompson who took her out and watched over her. Thank you to my husband, Jay, who cared for her the past decade and treated her like a "mom". We shared many good times with "mama", a.k.a "Crazy JoJo" and will miss her always. She now rests in peace with her second husband, Edward G. Byrne, and will join her first husband Paul DelGatto, Sr. and her ten brothers and sisters of the Muccioli family of New York who preceded her in death. Your sons, Ray and his wife Tammie along with son Paul, pray for a restful sleep till we meet again, as do all the many people at Sun Lakes who you made smile. Jay and I will personally miss hearing you call us daily: Bobbie, Bobbie, Jay, Jay. God speed mama-you deserve heaven.

Mom and Chris together. It was a happy time to be together. Now they are forever in one's arms and have eternity to "party" and dance, something they both liked to do. Dance till we meet again!! Love

Last time we were all together for NYE. It was a happy time. Tough to get everyone in the same town all at once. It is a shame more people cant understand the importance of "being together". There is a big eternity out there and a long time to wait till we meet again. Miss you mom and sis!
