A family statement read:  Mom was the glue that held us all together.  Despite the many losses that she endured, and the numerous medical issues she had over the last several years, she never lost her humor.  She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and most of all, a friend and confidant to us all.  We will miss her laughter, jokes, and competitive game playing. We would like to thank the entire staff at the Carlucci Home for making her final years happy ones.  She loved you all dearly and your unwavering dedication to providing the best care possible will never be forgotten.  Rest In Peace and watch over us, our beautiful angel.
