I, my sister Melissa, and my late brother Sandy always thought of Connie as our second mother. My favorite memories of her are that she always organized fun activities for all the kids on the block during the summer. We would go in the pool, read books, do jigsaw puzzles, play cards and board games, and so many other fun things. My brother was a special needs person and Connie patiently taught him how to make Christmas ornaments. She even gave him a surprise 16th birthday party in her yard in July 1965.
To Kenneth, Debbie, and Elaine, I know how sad it is to lose a wonderful mother but I am thankful to have been blessed with one just as you were. My mother is my guardian Angel and I know your mother will be yours.
My prayers and thoughts are for the Mattera family.
All my love,

To the Mattera-Accorsini Family,
Your mom was always part of my life from the early days in Elmhurst. I'll never forget spending time with her in her kitchen after I got out of school. She was a very warm and loving person. My heart is heavy with sadness but filled with wonderful memories. My deepest sympathy to you and yours from George Sloan and Suzanne Lance
