Pearl and I lived four houses apart on the same block for more than 50 years. We kept each other updated on the happenings on the block. I'll sure miss visiting with her!

Aunt Pearl welcomed you into her home with open arms, open heart, and open refrigerator (it's an Italian thing). I can still hear her laughter, a giggle that warmed your heart and made you giggle too. She didn't worry about things she couldn't change, "Oh well, what can you do?" was her response. Always a ball of energy, she was the last to sit down to eat, but the first to give you a hug. And oh what wonderful hugs. I love you, Aunt Pearl.

I remember Mrs. Parlipiano as a very caring, loving and accepting person, she and Mr. Parlipiano were always very welcoming when i came over. When I was preparing to leave Pueblo, I talked to several mothers of my friends for their recipes of various Italian dishes. I teased her, when i asked for her Pizzelle recipe. I told her not to do the Italian way, to leave out a key ingredient, or alter the recipe so that she still had the best. She laughed and said she would not do that. Maybe it was her special love that made her cookies taste better than mine, even though using her recipe, maybe. I have never forgot her or the family no matter where in the world i was. The world is a better place because of her. Love Scott

Hi I’m Izabella Pearl Parlapiano’s First great granddaughters. Ever since I was 5 when I came me and her would play a board game and I would stay the week with her.
I was sad when she passed and I’m still not sure if I could go to the funeral. Made on July 28 at 11:26 pm

My mother was quite, but very strong. She made sure we never went hungry, as all Italian mothers do. She loved being outside in the sunshine, reading her James Patterson books, doing puzzles, and of course playing cards even if she cheated. I will always remember her standing at the back door waving good bye, as we left the house. Goodbye Mom see you later. I love you....
