Gilda’s first passion was her family especially her grandchildren. She also enjoyed her garden, making homemade bread and pasta, sauce and sausage making, knitting and especially sharing time with her family and friends. She had a heart of gold and would do anything to help others. She was kind, generous and selfless even in her final moments. We know that she will continue to watch over us from above. Riposa in pace cara Mamma.
