  1. Dear Joanne, Bob & Family,
    We send our prayers and heartfelt condolences to you and yours.
    You have been so blessed to have her until now and she was blessed in having all of you. My memories take me back to high school in having had the privilage of knowing both of your parents and your family.

    God Bless, Angela Frazier
    My Dad is buried at Holy Cross cemetary in Culver City. What a beautiful place!

  2. Dear family, Maria, Elaine, Joanne, Eddie, Maryanne and all the in-laws, children, grandchildren, cousins and close relatives. What a gift this remarkable woman was!! Joe and I had the wonderful priviledge of getting to spend time with Nonnie and we fell in love right away. How could you not? There was always a smile on her beautiful timeless face and a feeling of love for all that just exuded from her joyful spirit. Thank you for sharing her with us. We love you all and know how much you will miss her. But heaven has another angel now to watch over you all. May God bless you greatly.

  3. Dearest Joanne Elaine, Michael and family…our deepest sympathies…I adored my Aunt Mary and I am grateful I saw her last summer at Uncle Jim and Aunt Dianah’s home.
    She was truly a beautiful woman in presence and her spirit…you were all so fortunate to have her for so long…she left a wonderful legacy with your family.
    We would have been with all of you on Saturday, but I am here in Alexandria Virginia babysitting my niece Olivia…to help my sister out.
    All of our love
    Suzanne and Joe

  4. We celebrate the life of our Nonnie.She was the kindest,gentlest, and most loving person I have ever known. She modeled these qualities to all of us in our interactions with her. She taught us to love God’s gifts and slow down enjoy each moment. She would often sit in the sunlight holding our hand and act as if the sun was something she had never experienced before.
    Nonnie was as pure as it gets. She taught most of us how to juggle oranges at a young age. She juggled oranges all the time as well as raw eggs for our entertainment. When visiting her, we were fed chuck steak and cut oranges many fun ways. I continue to use those cuts with my children today. She would give us a shampoo scrub we could continue to feel for the next 24 hours.
    From her broiled chuck, Italian cooking, orange cutting, and juggling talents, I find my Nonnie’s ways showing up in my everyday life. She would always say “Oh honey, you’re so precious”

    Nonnie you’re precious to all of us and we love you.
