She was born on March 11, 1935 in Bitritto, Bari, Italy. Her and her late Husband Vito immigrated to Canada and settled in Ontario. They eventually purchased a farm in Markham, Ontario where they made their living and raised a family until her husband passed in 1991.

She continued living there, gardening, raising chickens and caring for her many cats and rabbits until very recently. She was a member of the Richmond Hill Social and Bocce Club where she enjoyed playing Tombola and dancing with her friends. She was dearly loved and will be missed by her immediate family, devoted nieces and nephews and many friends.
