January 7, 1933 – March 20, 2020
Our greatly loved, beautiful mother Margaret Giorgione, 87, of Henderson, Nevada, said goodbye to this earth on Friday, March 20, 2020.
She was the center of our world, a true angel. She showered us all with her love and guidance. She was a great mother to her children throughout her life and loved her role as Nana. We will never be the same without her. She taught us how to love.
The last of her generation, the matriarch of our family and the glue that held us together, she had a big heart and opened her home to everyone as family. There was always enough food, great music, laughter. Everyone was welcome at the Giorgione table and her spaghetti sauce was the stuff of legends!
Margaret Lucille Lorraine Jerzak Giorgione was born on January 7, 1933 to Sylvester and Theresa Jerzak and raised in Rochester, New York with her sisters Dorothy and Geraldine.
Graceful, intelligent and extremely capable, Margaret “Peg” Jerzak was a professional dancer who owned her own business at a time when that was not the norm for women.
Margaret fell in love with and married Anthony Giorgione and together they raised five children: Anthony Jr. (Denise), Steven (Nancy), Ronald, Ganine (Theo), and Thomas (Laura).
Margaret was preceded in death by her husband Anthony Giorgione.
Margaret is survived by her five children, eleven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
Thank you for all your prayers, love and support at this time. There will be a celebration of her life in the summer and we invite one and all.
