Lidia Scolaro, age 67, passed away peacefully August 5, 2020 due to Pancreatic Cancer. She was born November 21, 1952 in Francavilla Angitola, Calabria, Italy. She married her longtime friend and love, Rino Scolaro, in a little Las Vegas White Chapel on September 19th 1992 .
Lidia loved to love people and spend time with all of her friends and family. She especially enjoyed being kind and helping others. Lidia’s favorite food was soup, she made them with love and believed they gave warmth to the heart and soul. Her other favorite food was anything her sister, Maria made, as this was the way they expressed love for one another. Lidia also had a strong bond with her brother, Vincenzo, distance was never an obstacle with him living in Italy, she always stayed close.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
