She is predeceased by her sisters, Lucy Vitulli Palatiere (2018) and Dorothy Vitulli (2020).
Her Family would like to especially thank her wonderful neighbors for all their help through the years. Life would have been harder without their love and support. They feel truly blessed to have them in their lives.
