GIOCONDA FUNICELLO

GIOCONDA FUNICELLO

Gioconda was called to her final home on April 1 at the age of 98. Born in San Fili Italy on January 24, 1924. She came to this country to find a better life. She was a hard working woman at the Hygional Powder Puff Factory in New Rochelle for over twenty five years. A warm hearted person who would help anyone in need and whoever she came in contact with. She loved gardening and kept a beautiful garden of flowers. She always recited poetry which was something so close to her heart and always remembered her verses, even in her later stages of dementia. She suffered with bravery the last two and a half years of her Alzeimers. In the last week of her life, which was extremely difficult, she ultimately lost her battle. Fortunately, she was kept comfortably at home, happy in her own environment.

The loves of her life which brought a huge smile to her face always were her family, daughter Roseanne, granddaughter Paula and great granddaughter Carolina. She treated her son-in-law Pat like a son, Ramon like a grandson. She loved traveling and did so thankfully, many places.

She suffers no more and is with our Lord in the final resting place. Gioconda was a beloved and loving wife of 62 years to Vincent Funicello, daughter Roseanne Cristofalo (Pat), granddaughter Paula Gonzalez (Ramon) and great granddaughter Carolina. Gioconda is predeceased by her brother Mario Costa, sisters Francesca and Maria Fedele. We give loving thanks to mom’s caregivers, Nana, Navette and Regina.
