Nonna, there are no words to explain how much you meant to Joe and I. We loved u very much. You welcomed me from day one along with your daughter Carmela. I can’t express how much that meant to me. I have so many fond memories of you. RIP. YOU were a loving and warm hearted grandmother. You will surely be missed. ❤️❤️❤️

Hey Jennie I don’t know where to start of memories that I have with you. One of the memories is when Angelo went next door in the morning and dig the holes so you can have your vegetables garden. You guys would put the seeds down. Another memory that I have is when you were yelling at the dog because he was barking at something and you asked him who were you barking at. I always see you sitting in the back porch. And when we wanted tomatoes you always give them to us by the fence. You always called us and say come by the fence we got something for you. You will be missed. You will never be forgotten.

Nephew, Frank Baldassarre

To my Aunt Jenny,
I am so proud of you for living beyond the ten children in your family. You led a good life and had a peaceful ending.
My Aunt Jenny was a straight forward person, did not mince words, straight to the point. If there was an issue, she told it like it was.
Congratulations for creating a family of two children and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Rest in peace, you definitely earned it.
