  1. I will always remember the happy times with our family, sitting around Aunt Julia’s table, and sharing all her wonderful bakery treats. She showed her love through her cooking, and welcomed all to her home. Aunt Julia was a warm, courageous and strong lady. I’m happy to have known and loved her. I will miss her. Linda Petrucci and Family.

  2. We will never forget our Nana! The macaroni suppers on Sundays, fresh blueberry pie, cartwheel cookies, patala, chicken cutlets, veal parmesan, canned tomatoes, and so many other delicious meals made with love and shared around the table with Papa and so many others. Her always practical nature, her unbelievable memory of people and things she’d done, her strength, and her always welcoming nature for visits whenever we could make it out there. She is with us always in our hearts and our spirits.
