Mary Di Chiara, age 84, passed away Saturday, April 16th.
She is survived by her husband, Gino, two sons, Sal and Vinny, daughters-in-law, Kim and Faith, and five grandchildren.
Arguably the world's best cook, her meatballs, penne vodka, and baked clams, among other dishes, will be severely missed. When she wasn't in the kitchen, she loved to ride her bike and hustle her grandkids in poker. She didn't like diamonds and fancy clothes, she preferred power tools and was the family handyman.
Mary will be remembered for her loving, warm, and crazy personality. She got her first tattoo at seventy-five years old and wanted a dirtbike for Christmas. Mary was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed by all.
