A beautiful woman, sister, mother, aunt and friend. A wonderful soul with an infectious laugh. She lit up a room. She was funny with her silly antics. Always up for an adventure.
Loved by all and will be greatly missed. Thank you Aunty for all the memories, for opening your home for weekends and parties and for my wedding. Fly high. Love you always! ❤️

Dear Izzy and family,
Words could never describe the deep sorrow I feel for everyone whose lives were touched by this beautiful and vibrant soul. I loved this woman! I will miss seeing her and her beloved Baxter. I will miss her driving up and giving me a banana and cheese sandwich. I will miss her conversations about various things. I will miss her deeply!
Izzy, my thoughts and prayers are with you! I know how close you both were. I loved seeing the both of you together and talking in either ones yard. Probably about gardening. I know that with the comfort of family and friends it will help you cope the best you can. She will always be with you. Cherish the memories and someday many many moons from now you will be reunited with your best friend.
With all my love and sincere deepest sympathies, your friend and mail lady,
Kathie ♥️🙏🏻🌹

My Aunty Lucy, always there for us as children. I remember her teaching me how to milk a goat in Middleboro and she let us sleep over all the time. She was the most loving soul!!! She cared so much about others. I will miss her smile so much. I know she is now reunited with my mom and dad as well as Jim and Bob and of course her amazing husband. She will be missed. Loved you aunty Lucy.

My dearest Vovoa,

There are so many beautiful memories. Your favorite memory you loved to share was when I was learning to ride a bike. I was so scared and didn’t want you to let me go.. but you did and that’s how I learned. All throughout my life you taught me the essentials. How to drive a car, how to make sweet bread, how to sew and knit, and how to care for my garden. You fostered my love for education always taking the creative approach. You were one of a kind, the only grandmother that wants to go sky diving! I will always cherish that moment I got to jump out of the sky with you. I am so proud of you and proud to call you my grandmother. You were so full of life and made a the most of a moment. One of my favorite memories was when I tricked you with a fake lottery ticket! Ohh you got so mad at me! Another favorite memory was when I got to see you hold Cameron for the first time and again during your last visit. We all love you so much.

Watching you pick grapes and being soooo excited about making wine. I will
Miss the walks around your garden and the excitement telling about each flower and tree and plant, always trying to get me to taste them! Hahaha I will miss you forever! Family is who brings you close and you held me right for 37 years! I will always love you

Hey Vovoa,

Your visit down here could not have been more perfect. You were so full of love and life. Your passion and love for family and plants were in full bloom until your last day. I am so thankful that you were able to see both Ellie and Cameron again. They will remember your visit and youthful demeanor forever. Just 2 weeks ago you were stomping around in my backyard planting... SOMETHING! I will try my hardest to foster a love for plants and nature in Ellie, I guess I have some research to do! On Thursday last week Amber, Ellie and I went to McKee Botanical Garden to be close to you. As we walked the beautiful plant and flower filled gardens we joked that if you were there you'd be trying to take clippings to bring back home to your garden and sisters.
Say Hi to Pep for us.
We miss you both.
-Alex, Amber and Ellie

It is with deep sadness to hear of her passing my heart and soul goes out to Roseann and our two beautiful children Luciana and Lucas on the loss of their loving grandmother and mother.
I have many fond memories of our time together, she was a unique and fun loving woman.
She always brought a smile to my face whenever she was around us.
She will truly be missed by all that knew her as she had a great spirit about her.
Now she can rest in peace with her husband Oliie as they can be reunited in heaven.
Loved you dearly mom and I will miss you, thanks again for all your love and support.

Love you,

Jason Trabucco
