She is also survived by her sister Margaret Amoroso. She was preceded in death by sisters, Filomena Amoroso, Grace Gambardella, and Julia Califano, and brothers Felix, Romeo, Joseph and Victor Amoroso.  She also leaves her very special nephew Steve Califano, who was like a son to her.

Her family wishes to thank the entire staff of the West Shore Health Center for the loving care showed to their Mom and to them during her time there.
