I will remember Nanny as being young at heart, even in her old age. She had a zest for life, an openness that enabled her to befriend anyone, and a caring heart. Those are great things to aspire to, and I’m glad she impacted me in that way. She will be loved and missed!

My dear Aunt Connie, you were the most beautiful soul. You were funny, compassionate, just loved life. We will miss you greatly. I remember when you were my sponsor for confirmation. That was such a wonderful day. I took your name. I feel so honored. I love you so much. I'm so glad I have alot of memories. God Bless You Always.

People often wonder why my mom lived to be 97 years old. It’s probably because that’s how long it took for me to learn everything she tried to teach me. God Bless you mom. I think I’ve got it now. Rest In Peace.

My “Nanny Connie” had such a big personality for being such a small lady. I don’t have a many memories that don’t include Rummy, Bingo, decadent snacks, and lots of laughter. I’m fortunate that I got to spend so much time with my grandma growing up. Before she eventually moved to Florida, I remember being a kid and bawling my eyes out at the airport when she flew back to NJ after a visit. I didn’t understand why she was leaving us. She was an awesome grandma who loved her family dearly. She will truly be missed.

Our hugs to all of you and keep the memories alive in your hearts!!
The eldest of 8 not an easy task!!
Aunt Connie was not only a treasured one of a kind Aunt but taught me everything I know for my kids today. Oh & what an amazing cook the house always smelled like a meal ready to eat and jello at the bottom shelf in her frig ready for us kids to eat as soon as we arrived.
Will never forget playing cards & bingo with her along with the rest of our family ....as well as doing arts &crafts as kids with both her & Aunt Jean. She loved sharing amazing family stories from years ago all the way back to Italy!!Many laughs and loved dearly xo Love Nicole Chris Joe Katarina & Dominick
