Lukeina "Lucky" DiFulco Sharp
September 6, 1925 – November 4, 2019
Lukeina “Lucky” DiFulco Sharp was born September 6, 1925, and passed away November 4, 2019, at the age of 94. She lived independently in her long-time home in Metairie, assisted by her brother, Charlie, in the last months of her life.
Lucky Sharp was the daughter of the late Carlo and Frances DiFulco, whom she lovingly cared for in their later years. In addition to her brother, Charles DiFulco, she is survived by many nieces and nephews. They and her many friends will miss her frequent, caring, and light-hearted telephone visits. Lucky loved playing the piano, mandolin, and accordion, especially with her late brothers, Paul, Joseph, and Luke DiFulco. With her mother, she helped prepare amazing weekend feasts for the entire family.
For 37 years, she worked for the New Orleans Port of Embarkation as a federal civil service employee, where she was a logistics management specialist. In her younger days, Lucky was an ardent member and treasurer of a Saints fan club, travelling with them for out of town games and even to London. Lucky treasured her lifelong friendships. She will be greatly missed.
