Aunt Pauline had a big heart and caring touch. She was always welcoming and would find a way to pinch my cheeks ( I never was able to escape). Her compassion, companionships with her sisters and gentle smile was always there to great you. She will always be in thoughts and memories. Be at peace.

Aunt Pauline was an amazing woman. She touched so many hearts with kindness and a beautiful smile.
She and her sisters were a great support in our lives and helped us feel part of family. We were always welcomed with hugs, kisses ,and wonderful homemade meals. Their home was a place of comfort and love. She was proud of family and loved deeply.
Aunt Pauline faith was strong . She is now at peace .
May God Bless and keep her.
Memories of Aunt Pauline will always be a comfort.

I have such fond memories of dear Aunt Paula and, of course my Uncle Paul. They were both incredibly kind to me when I was growing up. I vividly remember their wedding day. What a lovely couple they were! ... and their children were all so beautiful as well! The entire Assumma family were wonderful people. I know Aunt Paula will be greatly missed....
Because of COVID and my age, my family has advised me not to attend events at this time but please know that I am thinking of and praying for the family at this very difficult time.
Much love , Maria Perrotta Gennarelli
