Emilia survived the hardships of WWII in Italy. She worked for her family's farm and was care taker to her parents. In 1960, Alfredo and Emilia moved their family to Binghamton, where she worked as a shoemaker at EJ’s until she retired in 1985 to take care of her grandkids. Emilia was a great provider, dedicated and loving wife and mother. She will be rememebered for her delicious homemade spaghetti, meatballs and sauce, amazing almond cookies and most of all her “sponge cake.” When any family arrived at the house she would quickly get her pots and pans out to make you a meal. You never left there hungy. The family would like to express their appreciation for the wonderful care and compassion shown to our mother by the staff at Willow Point Nursing Home. Visitation will be held on Thursday from 5 until 8pm at the THOMAS J. SHEA Funeral Home Inc. 137 Robinson St. Binghamton, NY.
