I remember, as a young girl, Lidia worked for my father at Giantonio's Pastry Shoppe. She became like family and both my mother (Frances) and my father (Nick) thought the world of her. I am so sorry to hear of her passing and just wanted you to know I remember her sweet smile and her love of my parents. I send love and prayers during this sad time. Carol (Giantonio) Gallo

I was blessed to be one of Lidia's many friends and very fortunate to enjoy her friendship for many years. She would tell me about her trip on the Andrea Doria to rejoin Romolo in the U.S. after they married in Italy. She loved her three wonderful daughters (& spouses) and all they did for her. She was a wonderful cook and baker and made sure you never left her home empty-handed. She will always have a place in my heart. I will miss her.

We knew Lidia through our friendship with her family members, the Pataccas. She and Romy were such a delightful couple and always made everyone feel like family. She will be missed and we feel so fortunate to have been accepted in her circle of family and friends. Our prayers to all of you.
