Nicoletta was predeceased by her husband, Salvatore, children Nick and Franca, brother Frank, nephew Nick and grandson Archie. Nicoletta found joy working in her garden alongside her best friends, Sunrise and Joe. Some of her best memories were sharing her kitchen with her grandchildren, teaching them to cook traditional style Sardegnian meals as well as decorating desserts and spending time with her loving family.
