Maria was born in Lota/Settefrati  on September 22, 1929 in the Province of Frosinone, Italy.  She and Gerardo were married in 1955, and in 1956 immigrated to the United States.  They settled in Newton and built a wonderful life together. Maria’s greatest joy was her family, for whom she loved to cook truly wonderful meals. Her flower and vegetable gardens were a sight to behold every summer.  In her later years, she enjoyed traveling more frequently to her hometown in Italy to visit with her beloved family there. Maria will be missed beyond words and we deeply cherished our time with her. Our family and friends are blessed to have so many beautiful memories of Maria.

In Lieu of Flowers, donations may be made to St. Mary of Carmen Society in Newton or the  Alzheimer’s Association.
