She is preceded in death by her loving parents, Francesco and Concetta Ciotola; her brothers, Domenico, Angelo, Bruno, and Benito Ciotola; her brother-in-law, Franco Policaro; and her cousin, Reverend Monsignor Romano Ciotola. She is survived by her husband of sixty-four years, Giuseppe Milano; her sister Giovanna (Ciotola) Policaro; sister-in-laws, Italia Ciotola, Sylvia Ciotola, Evelina Ciotola, and Maria Ciotola; son Giuseppe Milano Jr. (Mary-Jo); daughters, Tina Milano-Cates (Dennis), and Brenda Friedel (Jim); grandchildren Paul Tavella (Leah), Daniela Milano, Gabriella Stutzman (Desmond), Enzo Milano, Brandon Friedel, Armando Milano, Christina Friedel, and Nicole Friedel, along with great-grandchildren Gia and Marco Tavella. Dina was the matriarch of the family and was always there to lend a hand to whomever needed her. She was a very loving, caring, and compassionate person to her family and friends. She had many friends in Columbus, Ohio and Pompano Beach, Florida, whom she held dear to her heart. Her beautiful smile will be missed by all. Dina and husband Giuseppe founded Milano's Steakhouse and Villa Milano Banquet Center. Her sense of style and grace contributed to charming many customers throughout the years.
