Giuseppina was born in a small town in Italy where she worked on a farm harvesting wheat and raising 3 of her children.  In the early 60’s she came to America with her children and once here she had one more child.  Giuseppina devoted her life to raising her children and her grandchildren.  You could always find her in the kitchen making Italian meals from scratch.  On Sunday, you could always count on her Pasta and Meatball dinners.  Giuseppina was the heart of her family and will be deeply missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Alzheimer’s Association, 8430 West Bryn Mawr, Suite 800, Chicago, Illinois 60631 would be appreciated.
