She was known for her fondness of the Bronx, quick wit, funny one-liners, and her generous spirit.   A viewing and funeral mass will be held Tuesday, November 17th at her parish Immaculate Conception Church, New York, NY beginning at 9:15 for close family and friends before burial at Gate of Heaven in Hawthorne, New York.
