Her journey began on July 2, 1929 in San Marco, Italy, but she stopped counting years at age 25.
She was a very devoted wife to Pierino Piraino for 69 long but loving years.
She was a loving and caring mother to Frank (Lina) Piraino, Ersilia (late Vincenzo) DiCianni, Pat Piraino (Tina) and Anna Piraino.
Carmela had a strong love for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren Maria, Peter (Patricia, Ella and Mia), Lori-Anne (Elissa and Jessica), Kathy, Christina (Fabrizio, Briana and Liam), Angie, Alicia (Antony and Ilaria) and Daniel.

We will be forever grateful of her zest for life even during her courageous battle with cancer.
"And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears."
Mama, you will forever be in out hearts.
