Mom’s passion and purpose in life was her family. There was nothing more important to her than her family. As a mother she raised her children to be ethical and moral, and to treat others with respect and kindness. As the grandchildren came along, she taught them the same as well.

Of course, Tilly was best known for her cooking. In her prime, besides the main frig in the kitchen, there were 3 other over-stocked refrigerators in the basement as well as a full-sized stand up freezer. Not to mention the large backup pantry room in the basement.

No one ever went hungry around Tilly. Of course, food was her tool to bring family and friends together and be hospitable to others.

Mom held many memorable holiday dinners for family and friends which seemed to have endless amounts of appetizers, entrees and desserts. There is an old Italian saying “A tavolo non s’invecchia”: “At the table one does not grow old”. No one grew old at Tilly’s kitchen table. Time was truly endless there.

The grandchildren have many fond memories of Noni, especially summers by Noni’s pool laughing, playing and enjoying soda, junk food and of course her famous fresh doughboys.

Mom always made sure we ate together as a family. Her priority was that we were together, that everyone got along, that we were loyal & always had each other’s back and, simply, that we were always happy being together. That we were a Family.

So, rest peacefully Mom, mission accomplished!

passing of your mom and wife. Please know that her memory
will live forever in your hearts.

Our thoughts are with you, Aldo (and the gang) at this time. Some of my earliest and fondest memories have you and Tilly in them. From fun times at Cape Cod with the pharmacy association to putting that damn roof on the house (remember the Aldo dip?) are remembrances I treasure. God bless.
