Please share a memory of April to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
April Alati DeFeo, aged 74, died on October 14 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. She was a beloved wife and cherished mother and grandmother. She will be remembered for her tough spirit, her sense of humor, and her love for her family. April was born in the Bronx, New York to Joseph and Irene Alati and grew up there with her brother, Vincent, and her sisters Joann and Amelia. After her first marriage, April spent two years in Europe, where her husband was stationed in the military, before moving to Yonkers, where they raised their family. She married Tony DeFeo in 1998 and continued living in Yonkers where she enjoyed life as a homemaker, until eventually retiring to Palm Beach Gardens. April loved traveling, shopping, making her home beautiful, spending time with her family and her dog, Rocky, and spoiling her grandchildren. She was known for bragging about her grandchildren to anyone who would listen! She was a talented cook, and her family will treasure memories of her famous homemade pizza and Zuppe Di Pesce. This area always held a special place in April's heart, and she especially loved the fall season in New York. April is survived by her husband, Tony DeFeo, son Richard (Bethany) Spaziante, grandsons Jonathan and Benjamin Spaziante, and sisters Joann (Michael) Schacht, and Amelia Alati.
