Antonia Severo "Nina" and "Ninuzza" 81, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by her husband Antonio, her children Tony, Bruno, Preziosa, Carlo, Anna Maria and Alessandro and her seventeen grandchildren and one great grandchild who all loved an adored her. She is predeceased by her brother Francesco "Ciccio" (Angelina) and survived by her brothers Domenico "Mimmo" (Rita) and Giuseppe "Pepe" (Antoinette) and many adoring nieces, nephews, cousins and loving friends.
Antonia was an amazing woman with an infectious smile. Antonia's passions included her children, her love for our family country home retreat (Bagaladi Ranch), needle point, embroidery and cooking. Some of her favorite recipes include making her homemade pasta, pizza and her stomatico cookies. She loved music, Italian and country. "Piccolo fiore dove vai" was one of her favorite songs, as beautiful as she was inside and out she resembled the most beautiful flower you can ever imagine. She loved to watch "Totó" films, a famous Italian comedian.
Her love extended from here to her beloved birth place Bagaladi in Reggio Calabria Italy where she grew up and visited often, as seen through the outpour of love and support that has been expressed from abroad. Some of her kind words which she always said was " Vatte D'accordo con tutti" Vulitavi Bene" and "Aiutate l'un l'altro". She will be greatly missed.
